Announced over two years ago, the brand collaboration between LEGO and IKEA has finally birthed its first product: IKEA BYGGLEK.
If like me, you are a fan of both IKEA and LEGO, you should be excited about the first product born from the collaboration between the two brands. We had to wait almost two years, but it was worth it. Here is IKEA BYGGLEK.
While the BYGGLEK’s official launch is planned around August-September 2020, an IKEA store in Germany was a little too excited when it received its first delivery, and launched the product too early. After displaying it over the weekend, it was removed once someone realized the error.
What do we know about IKEA BYGGLEK?
BYGGLEK is the ultimate storage box. At first sight, it may look like a nice sturdy white plastic box, but there is more to it. Firstly, the lid is built as a LEGO baseplate. That means that you can build anything you can think of using regular LEGO on top of it. It also features a small customizable window, in the front, where you can use LEGO to build something unique that could help identify the box and/or what is in it.
Of course, as per all LEGO structures, it’s stackable.
Three sizes and a brick box
This IKEA x LEGO storage box will be available in three sizes:
- Large box: 35 x 26 x 12 cm – 14.99€
- Medium box: 26 x 18 x 12 cm – 12.99€
- Small box x 3: 1 box at 17 x 6 cm and 2 boxes 13 x 6 cm – 9.99€
There is also the LEGO 40357 BYGGLEK brick box that contains 201 pieces, including two small figurines, for 14.99€. Presumably, this will be to start customizing your boxes. You can, of course, use your own LEGO if you already own some.
IKEA describes the BYGGLEK range as, “not just a simple box with a lid – this is a treasure chest full of tempting game ideas; a house that you can furnish; a staircase, a kit for creative people. And much more if you want.”
So, what do you think?
