    Default Duplo Shovels?

    Is there such a thing as a duplo/lego shovel? How do you pick up all those freaking pieces? I'm so sick of scooping and scooping and only getting sore hands and three bricks each time

    So you put it on the floor? Use a queen/king fitted sheet on the floor first!
    Or get one of those Lego mats with the drawstring, but a sheet is bigger and most homes already have them

    You could always buy a cheap dustpan set and dedicate it to the duplo too

    The 4yo upends the box of it onto the floor. Often prior to asking, so I don't get a chance to lay anything out. The dustpan idea might work though!

    Can you keep the sheet in the box too (Lego wrapped up in sheet then in the box)?

    We use a Trofast storage unit from IKEA with a table top added and then it gets stored in the drawers with the intention of less of it ending up on the floor...

    Similar to this type of thing...
