The Swoop bag

Ever step on a Lego barefoot? Then you understand why View Ridge graphic designer and mom Sarah Kirk felt the need to create the ultimate brick wrangler, the Swoop bag. Inspired by a storage bag that her grandmother made 30 years ago for her brother’s Lego collection, Kirk makes her bags from durable cotton canvas and high-quality nylon cording. When open, the Swoop is a 44–inch-diameter play mat that corrals potential messes. Pull the sturdy cord, and the bag cinches up.

$48. Available in 11 colors (at press time, a smaller version, Swoop Mini, was soon to be released for $24) at swoopbags.com
