No More Sorting or Stepping On Legos Thanks to Box4Blox (Giveaway)

 

How much does it hurt when you step on a little tiny Lego in the floor? It’s a pain like no other and with three boys who love all things Lego, it is a scenario that has been repeated time and time again in my house. Checking on the kids at night in the dark, I tiptoe in and there laying on the floor is that little bitty tiny piece of plastic. You already know what comes next!

I’m thrilled to tell you that you don’t have to endure the pain a moment longer thanks to a fabulous product that we were just recently introduced to–Box4Blox!

Before now, the boys Legos have never had a home. We have a Lego table for the bigger toddler sized Legos, but that is it. The smaller ones of all shapes and sizes seem to be strewn around the house. If it isn’t part of a creation, its in a bucket, the bottom of a toy bin, even on the playroom floor. It has driven me crazy and it never occurred to me that there might be something out there to contain them all — aside from getting a bigger bucket. Box4Blox is better than a bucket.

Developed in New Zealand, but manufactured in the United States, Box4Blox is sold exclusively online. It was developed by a mom who spent nearly an hour sorting her kids Lego’s into a selection of plastic containers …only for her youngest to return home from pre-school and tip them all over the floor. How many times have we all been there. I know that I have.

Box4Blox works by grading Lego bricks through a series of four trays with different size grids. The boys were all excited to take the top off and drop the Lego’s down. It made it fun for them and for once I didn’t have any complaints about them having to pick up the Lego’s.

As the Lego pieces can be easily found from their respective trays, it eliminates the need to tip all the Lego’s out on to the floor. I love this concept!

Blox4Blox is even made from the same plastic that  Lego uses to make their construction blocks. When assembled with the four trays and lid, the BOX4BLOX forms a 10¼” cube, which holds approximately 1,600 Lego blocks. That is amazing storage right there! After the boys finished putting all the Lego pieces in, we took a few trays to see where the Legos ended up. Here are the medium size ones, which fell down the 1st two trays to get there.

And my most favorite? The green bottom tray – where all the little hard to find pieces end up. My kids are always crying over losing the tiny pieces and not being able to find them. Now? They will know to look in the green tray.

I am thrilled with Box4Blox and will be recommending it to all my friends. I can’t lie, it is sort of pricey … however this works so well that it is totally worth it to me! And look at the smiles on the boys. All clean. No fuss. And now they know where they can find all of their Legos from now on…sorted by size no less! This will make the perfect Christmas present for your kids or grandkids.

    I would love to have this for my daughters house my grandchildren are at that age where they love their blocks but they seem to get everywhere they are not to be.

  2. says

    My oldest daughter is a LEGO fanatic. She is constantly building with them. We definitely could use the extra storage so I’m not stepping on them. It’s true it hurts worse than anything in the world when you step on them. lol

  3. Cindi says

    Our youngest son is the Lego Maniac…
    He has loved them and quite adept at putting
    them together, since he was two years old!
    We have never gotten rid of any of the Legos
    that we own and we do find them everywhere.
    The pain of stepping on them is also getting
    old.
    Thanks, Cindi

  4. says

    I need one for my son! We keep his little Legos all in one box and sometimes we can search for what seems like an hour for one little piece! It’d be so nice to have a box that sorts them by size! :-)

  5. says

    dear lord i need this I am so sick of circle bruises on my feet, i swear stepping on one of those is the worst fate ever!! I would like to send my enemies to a room covered in those so no matter what every step was onto another piece of lego MWAHAHAHHAAHAHAHA!!!!

  6. Michele Puccini says

    Oh Boy, could I use this! 1 boy and over 5000 lego pieces! Not only all over his room, but in the basement, living room, sofa, pockets of his pants when I do laundry. And, there is nothing worse than stepping on a lego in the dark while you are walking down the hall…lol

  7. Ashley says

    Finally!! A solution to our problems! My 9 and 5 year old daughters absolutely love Legos and we literally, have thousands that get lost and found throughout our home! I always find them everywhere. When they can’t find the ones they are looking for, they always want to point the finger and blame our 18 month old son. This would be so helpful with organization in my kids room!

  8. says

    Both of my kids. My son is 8 and daughter 4, and they have so many legos. We converted an underbed storage box into their logo box so they can sort through them easier, but this new box would make that process even better.

  9. Ashley Santillanes says

    This would be great for my son he has sooo many legos. He is a major fanatic we have plastic tubs and big bags but even those aren’t enough!

  10. Jany says

    Thank you to Liza Corbo for this opportunity
    The Box4Blox is very practical, If I win I’ll give it as a gift to my niece and my nephew, they loved legos, It’s an easy way to teach them to be organized

  11. Lawanna says

    Would totally use this. It would save us from killing our feet every night checking on the kids. Legos don’t always go back where they belong after a day of playing. This is a great idea.

  12. Tabathia B says

    I need for my two youngest daughters who love legos and leave them lying every where

    tbarrettno1 at gmail dot com

  13. Melissa P. says

    I’ve always wanted one of these Box4Blox’s. My son has tons of Lego sets. This would come in handy to separate the small pieces from the large making it much easier to find what we need to complete the set.

  14. Jessica says

    I would love this for my two younger sons. There big brother just gave them all his old lego’s and they are everywhere! Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Anne Lehnick says

      oops… I meant to also say that I would use this for my son’s building blocks because I will have to give them away if I step on another one.

  15. Karen Medlin says

    We need it with a tub of lego’s, sure will save me a headache when the kids decide to dump the tub to find the pieces they need

  16. says

    My son LOVES Legos! And although he’s pretty good about putting them away, he’d still love this for organization. It would eliminate the routing around in the bin for just the right size Lego.

  17. corina parsons says

    I have a neighbor friend who is a single mom of a 6 year old boy. This would be a great gift for them cause his room is messy and Lego’s are everywhere!

  18. says

    Both my boys are Lego fans, so they would share this AWESOME Lego Box! And I would be ecstatic over not finding Legos all over the house and floors anymore! Great idea and a great gift for them! Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Janet W. says

    I would love to have this for my two grandsons! They love building with mega bloks right now and will start on legos soon. It will get quite messy and they will need this to keep their parts organized!

  20. says

    I need one for my son, he is a Lego fanatic, he aspires to be a Lego designer when he grows up. He could really use help organizing them and cleaning them up though.

  21. lana says

    I need this for my 4 year old son. He loves legos and I let him play with them when my one year old is napping. So he does not pick up the peaces and put in his mouth. Always screams when its time to put up the legos

  22. Janet says

    This is the answer! My guys are pretty good with keeping all the pieces on the old train table or in the 4 totes under. That’s a lot of Legos! BUT, this would be so helpful for finding just the right piece in that mess of a table. Dump a load in and sort…., perfect. We are forever looking for certain size pieces, it’s like gold mining!

  23. Tammy S says

    I would love this! There is nothing worse then stepping on a lego. It would be so nice to have them all in one place.

  24. LaTanya says

    I need it for my son. We are always stepping on those blocks and this would help to contain the blocks and makes for easy clean up.

  25. says

    This is perfect! My girls could use this. They love having their legos everywhere, and finding the pieces they need, all sorted out would be awesome!

  26. says

    That is a genius idea! Wow! My son would really use this. Right now he has multiple boxes that he slides under his bed; and I will not enter his room without him making a path for me – those Lego pieces hurt!

  27. sindy murray says

    This will be for my son Alexander and he will be using it for legos. I really dislike stepping on a lego those little tings really hurt!!

  28. april yedinak says

    I need one of these because right now my kids are storing their Legos in an old lunch box, but they are getting a few sets for Christmas and there will be too many to fit.

  29. HappyMomC says

    My sister could use one, all their legos are all around on the floor and this would surely make their place look clean and save up a lot of time cleaning/picking up for her.

  30. says

    That is amazing! So cool. I would love to have a box4blox for my preschool. We have tons of legos, but they get put in a bin and it is hard to find the little pieces. I think they would be played with a lot more if I had a box4blox! Thanks!

  31. Hanna says

    This would be way better than our current Lego storage system, which we call “all over the floor in the office”. It’s a great idea!

  32. Jen F says

    I’d love to win because we have a problem with Legos and blocks getting put back. They get stepped on and sometimes broken.

  33. John says

    My son always steps on Lego small parts, we found parts in different strange places around the house. He definitely could use this sorting box.

  34. Terri Moore says

    I need the box for blox for my son. I can’t tell you how many bruises I’ve had on my toes from stepping on them. Haviing OCD I love that it organizes the Legos too. =]

  35. Cassidy says

    I need one of these so I can stop stepping on my sons legos and not have him complaining about not being able to find some or having enough space for all of them and so on. This would make legos so much nicer for me to deal with

  36. Mary Somerville says

    With Legos it’s the more the better-but they are hard to store, and keep in one place!! The box is also great because it sorts the blocks-so the kids can work on creating, not searching!!

  37. Amy S. says

    I don’t know who would enjoy this more . . . My son or my husband 😉 One way or the other, it would be played with regularly!

  38. Mia Dentice Carey says

    Oh my! Do I ever need this for my 6 year old son who is a HUGE LEGO fan!
    This would help me keep my sanity! And daddy happy-daddy is the one who is always finding the LEGOs with his feet.

  39. Michelle says

    This would be a perfect solution for my 6-year-old’s Lego storage challenges! I love the sorting tray concept of being able to find the small pieces without up-ending the storage container – brilliant!

  40. Brittany says

    This would make picking up Legos much more fun, my kids need this! I hope I win but if not I see this as a Christmas present under the tree this year. Thanks for the chance to win.

  41. christine jessamine says

    i could use this for my son clayton, his legos are scattered all over, it would be nice to keep them together

  42. R.vidal says

    My 7yr old grandson is amazing w/legos. The things he builds would amaze anyone.but they do get in way of feet.lol..
    Thanks n merry x-mas

  43. Kristie Belding says

    The Box4Blox would be a wonderful solution to our lego storage needs. Right now they are sitting in a bin that gets tipped over and searched through for parts daily! It wouldn’t be a problem in a playroom, but we keep most things out in an open play area off in a corner of the dining room. Allows us to keep an eye on kiddos AND minimize sleep disruptions in the bedroom.

  44. Therese says

    Oh Lord only knows how much my feet would love one of these so first and foremost I am asking for this for my feet lol j/k! All three of my kids could really use this they have soo many legos that they play with and this would be a great place for them to put them, My son is very particular on how his toys go so I know this would make his life and my feet soo much easier! Did I mention i love the idea of this it is soo awsome!

  45. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    MY LITTLE NEPHEW, SIMPLY TO KEEP HIM FROM STEPPING & STICKING THE PIECES WHERE HE NEED NOT TO. THANKS FOR THE CHANCE!

  46. says

    I totally need one for my 5 year old son. I am so tired of stepping on Legos. Actually I’m more tired of vacuuming up the little pieces. Love the concept of this!

  47. Holly S. says

    I need a Box4Blox for my son Gabe! He is a Lego fanatic and sorts them by spilling them out all over his floor! Since we have to walk through his room to get to his sisters, it is a pain (literally.) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  48. Kate says

    My husband still has all his legos from when he was a child and I’m dreading my in-laws selling their house (they’re retiring next year) and making us come and get them. Knowing I had this to prepare would make me feel a lot better.

  49. says

    Our kids have quite a few Lego sets and we don’t have really have a good way to store them. I can’t tell you how often I step on Lego pieces when I’m in their room. This would be a great way to store and organize their Legos and my feet would get a break too!

  50. Daiva says

    I would love this for my kids! I think it would help them keep all the pieces together so they don’t get lost easily

  51. Charese Williamson says

    Well this is perfect for my three kids ages 9,6 and 3 and they are true Lego Babies, new Legos are at the top of there christmas list and coming from a mother who has had two foot surgery’s for planter warts trust me i do not need to step on another lego as long as i live. This would be the most perfect gift for my little ones one thing they would love to be apart of its cleaning process :-)

  52. Karissa V says

    Oh wow that is so neat…pun intended! My daughter loves lego, and it’s one of the few toys she shares with others so she loses a lot of pieces. What a great idea.

  53. Geri says

    My daughter is always getting into my husbands legos and leaving them all over the floor. This is such a neat storage idea, and it looks like such a fun way to store legos! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  54. Nicole says

    My little boy loves his legos….but doesn’t love to pick them up! It would be awesome to have this organizer to keep them off the floor. We are always finding random legos EVERYWHERE!

  55. Betsy says

    My son would love this, and so would I! We’re constantly digging through bins to find the smaller pieces that he wants to build with, and this would be a lifesaver!

  56. Grace says

    My son would love this .. we have Legos everywhere! Maybe he will be more organize and willing to store his pieces instead letting them just scattered all. over.the.floor .. :)

  57. says

    Does this not just make the most sense… ever! My boys would be spared many an afternoon of sorting and searching and my little feetsies, possibly, would have a little break from stepping on scattered legos.

  58. Melissa V says

    This would be great for my son, so that he can put his Legos away and have them all in one place —without feet pain. lol. Looks like a lifesaver!

  59. clarissa says

    2 of my boys are huge lego fans and their favorite thing to do is dump EVERY.SIngle. piece out…and then pick up and 2/3 leaving the others to be stepped on

  60. ACMommy3 says

    Have a elementary student lego builder who lives, breathes, survives on lego creating every single day, need I say more? This is needed. 😀

  61. Maria says

    We just spent a whole weekend trying to sort my sons Legos and we still have 2 big tupperwares left to sort-this would be very helpful.

  62. Mona Evanochko says

    My oldest Grand Daughter is finally old enough to play with the Lego’s her Mommy, sister and Brother had … but how do we keep them stored away from the 2 year old baby … and the one on the way?… Box4Blox! Thankyou!!! Would love to win.

  63. Lindsey D. says

    I NEED this for my 3 kids! They have lots of Legos and play with them daily. Their play area is right by my room so I am always walking out of my room first thing in the morning and stepping on a Lego landmine.

  64. says

    This would be for my boys… or I mean, really for me. So I don’t have to keep picking up their Legos just to vacuum! Or step on them. Or find that one piece they can never find… 😉

  65. Kel H says

    OMG, this has to be one of be best inventions ever, we are always stepping on lego pieces from one of my boys creations, and the sorting is such a neat idea, so much easier to help find the piece they are looking for then to dump a million legoes onto their bedroom floor, love this idea

  66. Sharon says

    I have a 17yr old, 13yr old and 2 yr old that all play with legos in the hallway! Then of course then end up on the stairs and everywhere! OUCH! Thia would be a HUGE help, but I might need 4 or 5 of them for the amount of Legos we have!

  67. Renee R. says

    This is Awesome! I could have used this box last week, I am still smarting from that little red block I stepped on.:o

  68. Rae says

    HA! I need this for my husband who is a lego fanatic. He’s already teaching our daughter to be one as well…I’m sure she’d get lots of use out of it, too.

  69. Ani says

    2 of my 3 boys are really into Legos and I’m tired of stepping on them :) I think this would help with some organization.

  70. darlene says

    I would love to have this set for my grandson! He has so many Legos and he is only 4. This is a great idea and love the colors! Talk about organization – this beats ziplock bags. Love this-

  71. Jeanette Jackson says

    I would like to win this for my grandson. He has so many Legos and this would be a great way to organize them.

  72. Lisa Marz says

    We need this for the whole family! With 4 boys from 17 to 5, we are over run with legos! We are just starting the process of sorting out all those bins and bins of legos!

  73. Teh Doll says

    I would give this to my nephew he has a ton of legos and I know his mommy would appreciate this so much..

    dollhousecreation(at)gmail(dot)com

  74. says

    I have six kids, and while the older boys love to play with legos, they aren’t so great at putting them away where little hands can’t reach them. This would be a HUGE help!

  75. Christie W. says

    My big kids love legos but have a hard time keeping them organized and away from the babies, so this would be perfect for them!

  76. Audrey griffis says

    my 6 year old daughter loves legos and now even her 3 year old brother is getting in to them i need this to keep my sanity from always finding tiny pieces :)

  77. says

    My son is just getting into the little legos… and he hates to pick up his toys! I am dredding the constant clean up. Maybe this will help?

  78. Tami says

    I could use this for both of my boys!! Those little Lego pieces hurt SO MUCH when you step on them in the middle of the night!!

  79. Tokekmise says

    This is a really cool product. I need this for my son and daughter’s lego collection, it looks so fun I might even clean them up myself.

  80. Nell says

    My nephew…he is a Lego addict and has so so so many little pieces everywhere! And a newly mobile baby sister who is getting into everything. Yup. They need this!

  81. Emily Schauer says

    This is great! my son is addicted to lego sets and im always picking them up or kicking them under furniture by accident…This would be very useful in our house.

  82. Gina Isbel says

    I would love to win this for my grandchildren!!!! Awesome product! Thanks for the opportunity & have a blessed day!

  83. Bella says

    What a great idea! I never realized what the big deal was about stepping on a Lego until we bought some this year. My fiance and our neices and nephews looove Legos so I find them all over the darn house! lol

  84. Shirley Hicks says

    this would be a wonderful thing to have…my son has so many lego sets..it seems we are always finding a stray block or two ..where they shouldnt be

  85. Melissa VandenBerg says

    My son needs this bad! He has enormous amounts of Legos and right now they are in boxes in the closet!! Thanks for the chance…..

  86. Lisa Garner says

    I need this for my 2 sons and youngest daughter because they have so many blocks and this would be such a great way to keep them organized!
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  87. Jennifer M says

    I need this for my son and I because they end up all over our living room floor and they don’t feel so great when you ‘find’ them by stepping on them.

  88. says

    I absolutely love the idea of this product! My kids are notorious for leaving Legos laying around because they have to dump the whole tub out to find that single piece they’re looking for which inevitably is at the bottom of the tub.

    boylaneely at hotmail dot com

  89. charity perry says

    my fiance.. he loves lego and has such a huge collection but they’re all stashed willynilly in rubbermaids. he’s always so good to me that i’d love to give him something in return.

  90. Taryn T says

    I have two boys…. double the legos, double the pain in the middle of the night when we step on them, and double the trouble of saving legos from the mouths of our new puppies…. I NEED this, :)

  91. Kerrie Mayans says

    I need one of these for my son. He currently keeps his in a rubbermaid tub and it is so inconvient to have to dump the whole thing to find the little accessories for the lego guys like thier hats and weapons.

  92. clynsg says

    This would be a great gift for my grandson, although I don’t know if it would be more for him or for his parents, since it would make storage of LEGOs so much easier!

  93. Laura Proctor Unger says

    I would love this for my older son who loves legos. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve stepped on these things, or gotten them caught in the vacuum.

  94. K. Cleaver says

    My youngest son could use this. He takes forever to clean up his lego right now. He has some sort of sorting method that takes forever.

  95. Chrissy Nestor says

    My daughter want’s Lego’s for Christmas this year and this would be awesome for it!

    chrissylea1979 (at)gmail(dot) com

  96. Christian Alejandro N. says

    This would got to my little brother, so that I never step on a lego again. It’s such a terrible pain when barefoot.

  97. susan smoaks says

    i need box4blox because i hate that we can’t keep our blox organized and put away, i hate stepping on the blox

  98. Jennifer Peaslee says

    I need a Box4Blox for my nephew, because he’s getting older and I want to AVOID stepping on blocks!!! lol! jenniferpeaslee at gmail dot com

  99. Laurie Emerson says

    I would love this for my son as he has tons of Lego’s which he loves to play with but I have to admit that right now they are in a box and there have been a few times they have ended up between my toes.

  100. Danielle Lima says

    This would be for my husband. He loves making things with Legos when he is bored, but I find them all over the house, in my wash and other places, ususally by stepping on them.

  101. cassandra says

    I could use this for my nephew who I babysit for throughout the week. He is always leaving legos everywhere in my house. that way he has no excuse and a great way to store haha.
