History of The Eneey Organization/Playspace Desk - Our son had acquired a massive LEGO collection by the age of eight. He would spend hours loudly digging through large plastic bins during his building sessions. The playroom was normally in a state of disaster once the pieces made their way out of the plastic bins because they rarely would be put back where they “belonged”. After searching for weeks for a solution, we realized that there was nothing available in the market that would function as a large-scale storage space while also making cleanup easy. The Eneey was then developed from scratch only for our playroom, but we quickly received requests from friends and family to build more. The Eneey solves the three most important requirements necessary to keep a large LEGO collection tamed, a play space area (1) with lots of storage (2) that makes cleanup and sorting fun and easy (3).
Play Space - The Eneey has a large top on which to construct and display LEGO creations. Multiple children can access the Eneey from any side and build together. The Eneey is designed for center-of-room use. Children aren’t hidden up against a wall or in a corner away from the light. They can play and still have eye contact and interaction with other people in the room. Lastly, children must get up and move around during the play process in order to access each of the included 16 trays.
Storage - The Eneey will help keep a LEGO collection clean and ready-to use. The storage bins are easy to access, lightweight, and can be removed/replaced by small children as they build.
Sorting - The Eneey has 16 slots in the top. Each slot corresponds to one of the 16 trays (included). Sort by color. Sort by shape. Choose your own preferred method. The Eneey makes it amazingly simple by allowing a piece to be dropped into a slot. Every slot is easily within reaching distance from a seated position. You will be astonished at how quickly a large pile of LEGO disappears into the correct trays, often while you are watching TV. Nothing before has made it this simple!
Quality Materials - All Eneeys are constructed with high quality Baltic Birch plywood. Much more durable and attractive than softwood-core box store plywood, Baltic Birch is made using only hardwood layers and it has a gorgeous edge. All wood components of the Eneey are initially cut using our precise computer-controlled CNC router and all pieces are then then detailed by hand. Exterior portions of each Eneey are sanded and finished with multiple cf coats of marine-grade, UV protecting, SPAR urethane with a color basecoat. This ensures a long-lasting, durable finish that prevents discoloring. The Eneey is extremely sturdy and steady. You can count on handing it down to the next generation.
Ease of Assembly - Although the Eneey requires precise alignment to function, don’t fear mistakes during assembly. Simply fold out the hinged faces for perfect alignment, and assemble the rest with a Phillips screwdriver.
Patented - The Eneey was awarded U.S. utility patent 9,894,990 on February 20, 2018.
It is the ultimate gift for yourself or anyone struggling with taming the LEGO portion of the playroom.
Since launch in 2015, there have been six generations of the Eneey Organization/Playspace Desk, each evolving and improving upon the previous generation.
Seated in a standard folding chair, or with the desk pulled up to your favorite sofa, the height of the top is ideal for a comfortable bend in the elbows while sorting. This relaxed position is also ideal for typing, homework activities, crafting, and many other uses. We understand that some children's interest in LEGO may fade for a few years before being rediscovered as adults. Our desks will remain useful and attractive during that time while keeping the childhood memories close.
An Eneey can go from the playroom to the bedroom, to the dorm room, to the apartment, to the sewing/crafts room, back to the playroom for the grandchildren, or even back to the Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL) himself/herself.
We know you will love it.
