I know LEGOs are on the top of a lot of your kids' favorite toy list and according to our Facebook discussions many of you had the same problem I did after Christmas (LEGO hurricane anyone?) I did a post last year about LEGO storage but here I am in 2012 and I STILL haven't found a great solution.
There are a few things I really want in our LEGO storage. The boxes/bins need to be shallow so that there isn't too much "digging" for the correct piece. The storage needs to be in the same spot where they play so that they aren't dragged around the house. And while not needed I'd really like it to look good!
Here are some I've seen around that maybe you haven't seen yet

One REALLY cool solution I came across was BrikCrate
Here's a little video about what it is
I have to say, it's one of the best solutions I've seen yet. Although this one table wouldn't hold all our LEGOS, it is a lot closer to my "ideal" storage solution! Here is a picture also from Brikcrate using 2 of their units
I also really liked this article How to Organize your LEGO Bricks for Efficient Building. I don't think my boys are quite there yet but it has some great tips!
Please tell me that one of you has the perfect solution?
