Could messiness be the mother of invention? ZipBin™ storage originated when the creator's inventive 10-year-old son, Max, and she put their heads together for some true "out-of-the-box" problem solving. Like many boys, Max loved plastic building blocks. And he likes to dump them on the floor-CRASHHH!! Of course, Mom loved to see Max play, but she groaned when she heard that loud mess of blocks spilling everywhere. Neither Max nor Mom liked cleaning up all those little pieces.
