Ikea and Lego always had something in common – but their recent partnership introduces a new and fun way to merge their products where you can literally start stacking Lego bricks on top of Ikea tables.
Bygglek is a collection of storage boxes the includes Lego studs so you can directly build on its surfaces. The collection includes different-sized boxes along with a set of Lego bricks to get you started. This is part of a collaboration between the two companies announced last year.
“At Ikea, we always believe in the power of play. Play lets us explore, experiment, dream and discover.” said Andreas Fredriksson, designer at Ikea of Sweden, “Where adults often see mess, children see a stimulating creative environment, and Bygglek will help bridge the gap between these two views to ensure more creative play in homes around the world. Plus, the Bygglek collection matches perfectly with other Ikea products, making it possible to have your children’s creativity becoming a nice and unique piece of decoration at home.”
There will be four different products under the Bygglek line. This includes 3 small boxes and two sets of a bigger box along with one set of Lego bricks. Since the tables already have Lego studs, it is already compatible with any Lego brick that you may already own.
While the set is clearly made for the kids, that doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy it too. Ikea said that Bygglek will be available starting October 1st in the US and Europe and will gradually roll out to other international markets right after.
