Please help me with info on how you store your child's LEGO collection. As a child Mum had a big circle of fabric with cord around it that we could open out flat and store all the LEGO in it. We had a big collection so finding a particular type of piece was often a big challenge. Mum said she did keep a book with all the instructions of all the kits we'd bought & she said that was a great thing that we liked.
But, LEGO is now so much more than bricks, wheels & minifigures. My ds's LEGO collection has just begun and we have started with an Advent Calendar which is great, but it comes with all these non-standard type blocks/minifigures/small parts. I'm not sure how to store them. Should we store the things made up, or insist on them being broken up? As it's an Advent Calendar for now the pieces are all made up & on a baseboard for display, but I don't want to leave his LEGO on display permanently.
So all suggestions on how you manage to keep your LEGO collection organised, but accessible would be great.
