Seems like a darn good solution considering the problem.
My wife sucked up legos with a british (read "expensive") vacuum, and it took an hour to strip it down and get the stupid things out.
Son has even more legos and i can now field strip the vacuum in less than five minutes. Never thought that would be a point of pride, but hey....kids man.....
