Lego Lovers Storage Solutions

Both J and E have grown to love Lego. We have all kinds of Lego sets which the children have put together over the years most of which are now on display in J’s room on a cube storage shelf set.

Somehow though the Lego bricks must have been breeding as whilst I was hoping this shelf would contain the majority of the households Lego it no longer seems to do so and we are currently seeking further storage solutions for our children’s ever-expanding Lego empire.
