“This would be really easy to use for kids as well,” another user wrote.
While most social media users were in awe of the machine, some criticized the mother, claiming that if her kids couldn’t clean up Legos, then they shouldn’t have one.
One user said, “Umm..just pick them up.”
Another added: “Or, here (sic) me out, if your kid can’t pick them up and understands why we don’t leave Legos (sic) on the floor then maybe they shouldn’t have Legos, just an idea although.’

‘Ah solutions to problems we don’t have. Let children clean up after themselves. Makes for better adults in the future,” another wrote.
But LaTresse told Today she was “used” to the criticism, as she regularly reviews products on her page, noting that even the haters help to “boost views.”
While you can no longer buy the machine from Amazon, you can still buy it from the company website.
