I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but your kids are really dirty. As in, filthy, grubby, bacteria-carrying germ creatures. They play with their toys, they play in the mud in the garden, they crawl around the floor, they put just about anything shiny in their mouths - if I were a parent I'd be beside myself worrying about them getting sick. So it's obviously for the hyper-neurotic like me that Bosch have aimed their latest dishwasher - the Lego Edition.
Aside from the usual crockery cleaning there's a special plastic toy-friendly washing cycle, that doesn't get above 40 degrees centigrade so your action man won't melt, but is thorough enough to return them to some sort of sanitary condition.
Available in freestanding, under-counter and fully-integrated versions, the Lego Edition range starts from €649 ($815).
