Re: HELP! I need Lego & other teeny tiny toy storage solutions
I have found that my boys are not as into "organizing" their legos as I am so we use the long, rectangular, shallow style bins that can slide under the bed.
Because the bins are shallow, they can see everything and don't have to dump them to get what they want.
Of course, I do still attempt to keep minifigures and smaller accessories separate, so I have a few shoebox sized plastic bins for those. You could also use small food storage containers for the little stuff. Anything with a lid works well.
**Another tip I learned from a friend is using a dustpan to scoop legos during cleanup. It is so much faster!**
