This is how you should be storing your LEGO® collection

Turn dreary clean-up time into a fun activity for everyone with these amazing LEGO® storage pieces from ROOM Copenhagen.

There’s no question that LEGO® sets are an absolute essential in every household. But, ask anyone who’s stepped on a stray LEGO® brick and they’ll tell you just how important it is to pick up those sneaky little pieces.

Storing LEGO® bricks and other pieces certainly isn’t as fun as building with them, or at least it wasn’t until ROOM Copenhagen introduced us to its amazing LEGO® storage units. Using the LEGO® brick blueprint, ROOM has extended the LEGO® experience to lunchboxes, drawers and large storage boxes, turning clean-up time into an awesome game of “build the oversized LEGO® bricks”.

Not only are these bricks proportionate to the LEGO® two-by-two and four-by-two bricks, they are buildable just like your normal LEGO® bricks, making them that much more appealing to your average LEGO® fan. Colours that are currently in stock at Kiddiwinks include blue, red and yellow. 

As if oversized LEGO® bricks and lunchboxes weren’t enough, ROOM has also introduced the iconic LEGO® minifigure head with the trademark LEGO® smile. Open up the top and store your odds and ends, or simply use it as a cute decor  accessory.  You can even use the large version as a fruit bowl, as per a suggestion by ROOM!

The LEGO® Iconic Storage Head makes a quirky fruit bowl.

“Though made first and foremost with children in mind, our products are sure to please parents as well as any adults with a soft spot for the LEGO® brand,” explains ROOM on their website.

The storage pieces are created with a strong focus on quality and functionality, making them ideal to add to your home. The items are BPA and Phthalate free, and no PVC is used.

Take your LEGO® adventures one step further with this awesome range from ROOM and finally get the family to clean up after themselves!

Discover your LEGO® favourites the old-fashioned way

Our fast-paced technological age means that kids are spending more time in front of a screen and less time learning to solve problems with their own hands and ingenuity.

Technology certainly has its place and knowing how to use it is an essential skill for kids these days. But so too, is the ability to create, discover and learn spatially.

We’ve all heard the long list of benefits of LEGO® play. Not only does it improve fine motor skill, (an essential and often under developed skill in young children), but it also helps kids to interact well with each other, forming relationships based on sharing and teamwork.

LEGO® play is versatile

It can be about teamwork or solo problem solving. It can be totally fantasy-driven, focused on free-building to create whatever you dream up, or it can be about following instructions.

It’s about being in the moment

Playing with LEGO® blocks and sets is always interactive and demands focus right then and there. Watch any young child absorbed in their LEGO® building task and you will understand the importance of losing yourself in the creation so completely, discovering the laws of physics and geometry and the wonders of creativity along the way.

Visit our stores to discover, play and learn

That’s why we’ve taken care to set aside interactive play areas in three of our four stores. We also hold regular LEGO® builds, as all of this encourages kids (and adults!) to immerse themselves in the wonders of LEGO® play.

What you’ll find:

  • Interactive LEGO® wall with troughs of bricks for free build activity that includes mosaic building
  • LEGO® Play tables
  • LEGO® DUPLO pit
  • LEGO® Club availability to sit and build one of a selection of complete sets provided for building on-site at tables

These school holidays, stop by our stores in Habitat Centre, Somerset West, Blue Route Mall and Willowbridge Shopping Centre where you’ll find piles of LEGO® blocks to build from. It’s a good diversion for the kids, and by good, we mean genuinely constructive learning through play!

Our interactive areas are always overseen by a designated Kiddiwinks staff member, and we encourage parents to stay and even join in.
