Me (Anssi, 49) and Oskar (my son, 9) have maybe hundred LEGO sets. All but =
the latest Ninjagos are disassembled currently (There are a lot of Star War=
s and Ninjago). Most parts are stored in two BOX4BLOCKS towers, the biggest=
ones + Hero Factory sets are in one bin and some other overflow from the B=
OX4BLOCKS are in some plasic bags.
I want to sort all those in an accessible way. Currently finding pieces to =
an old set takes several hours...and some are always left missing and have=
to be ordered from LEGO missing parts service. (Great service they have!)
We want to start rebuilding them. Then, when Oskar does not anymore play wi=
th one (typically for a new set that takes a few months), I will put it to =
a plastic bag and store compactly, half broken, somewhere. I plan to end up=
with a lot of plastic bags storing a lot of sets compactly, so that they a=
re easy to rebuild at any time.
Oskar also plays a lot with his own creations, so a certain optimal collect=
ion could be kept in the BOX4BLOCKs towers for random building. He has an e=
xcellent memory for details, so he can also dig up some of the plastic bags=
for missing parts as needed. There would essentially be three stages for L=
EGOs to exist and move between: free parts, bagged sets, and sets in play.
DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU? Is anyone doing anything similar? What els=
e are you doing?
