The 10 Best Lego Organizers
This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in November of 2017. Life is easier with organizers, especially when it comes to keeping track of small items, like Legos, in an efficient and logical manner. Most of these storage containers are designed specifically for accommodating these little bricks and their accessories, which is nice, because any parent of young children knows how quickly they can end up as hazards when they’re strewn across the house. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

When you’ve got lots of basic Lego sets, it’s often easiest to mix up all of the bricks into just one or a few repositories for storage purposes. That’s where these organizers come in handy, many of which are made directly by Lego, like the Lego 4-Piece, which we moved into our number one spot in this update. It’s made up of three zippered bags in bright primary colors, each of which can accommodate a good number of bricks. What’s more, they all fit nicely into the included large tote, which itself can be opened and transformed into a large mat when it’s playtime.
Speaking of play mats, our new addition also incorporates one, but this one transforms from the mat into a storage bucket, and back again. The Creative QT SlideAway stands 12 inches tall, and the mat it opens up to contains a lip around the border to keep all of the pieces contained. When the fun is done, just lift up the two handles and let the force of gravity slide everything back into the bucket component. You can buy it with confidence, thanks to its satisfaction guarantee.
If you’ve got a large number of pieces to store in a wide variety of sizes, check out the LifeSmart Stackable 5 Tier. Each row can hold up to 10 slots, depending on whether you choose to remove any of the dividers. This highly customizable choice comes with a comfortable carrying handle and stickers so you can label the rows or personalize it with your name.
A couple of fun models made by Lego are large replicas of standard Lego pieces. The Lego Brick 8 features the familiar rectangular shape of a brick and comes in your choice of 17 colors, including the popular, red, green, yellow, and blue options. Just flip the lid for a single storage compartment, and when it’s closed, multiple ones can be connected and stacked together – just like with real Lego bricks – making cleanup just as fun as playtime for kids. The Lego 4031 is a blown-up version of a minifigure head, and you can choose from a selection of faces, including a boy, a girl, a pumpkin, a skeleton, and more. As many reviewers point out, it makes for a great cake topper or other centerpiece at a birthday party, as well as a fun bowl for snacks. Like the large bricks, these are also stackable, either on top of other heads or when you connect them to bricks.
No matter which organizer is right for your needs, as a rule, always supervise kids and their toys for a safe playtime.
