Hello!

F$#*!!! If I stomp on one more piece of LEGO, I will literally hit the roof! Those little buggers seem to get everywhere…just waiting for me to take a step and then perfectly align with the softest, most tender part just under my foot. OUCH! I’m celebrating that Ikea has finally released a LEGO storage solution that will put a stop to painful feet injuries.

If ever I need any kind of home organisation, Ikea is usually my first point of call. It’s been a bit baffling to me why, up until now, Ikea has never released a suitable LEGO storage solution It’s a problem that most parents have and there are pages dedicated to hacking regular Ikea furniture to store those kids building blocks.

Power Partnership

But now Lego has joined forced with Ikea to launch an official LEGO storage solution and I seriously couldn’t be more excited.

Introducing Ikea’s new BYGGLEK playful storage solution which features Lego studs on the lid so that creations can be built on and around the storage boxes themselves.

Kids can open up the box, take their lego out of the box and put together creations on the back of the lid. Then, when it’s clean-up time, they just need to put the lid back on, with the bricks still attached to it, so it’s good to go for the next building session.

The range features sets of large and small boxes, all in clean white.

The three-box set is priced at around $15 (US), with the big single box costing about $20. There’ll also be a custom 201-piece LEGO starter brick set as part of the range, consisting mostly of simple, conventional pieces.

When?

The BYGGLEK storage boxes will be launched in Europe and North America first on 1 October. Australia will have to wait a few months until we get the Lego storage solution and should be on our shelves in early 2021.

Lego designer Rasmus Buch Løgstrup describes the innovation as storage and play intertwined.

“BYGGLEK provides families with a product range that helps create space for more play in their everyday – fuelling creativity, making it possible to have more fun together.

“It’s a possibility to play, display the cool creations and return to it to replay, remake, recreate or start over,” he said.

Lego consulted with child psychologists during the design phase of the innovative Lego storage solution, who emphasised that while kids love scattering their lego bricks around the floor while all parents want is some order in the home.

This sounds like EXACTLY what we need! Can’t wait.

  • I religiously clean the floor so I don’t get this issue. Could be useful for other family members that don’t remember

  • Smart idea, big containers also work ok, but not as stylish. Can’t wait for the creative hacks.

  • These are a great idea – more for having something to keep the kids LEGO creations on, rather than storage. Plastic containers have always worked here for storage but of course mean what they’ve made has to be taken apart. Or if they keep them up that’s when I find LEGO blocks on the floor as surly a sibling will get to it & grab pieces off!
    This Ikea one would be great for bigger pieces or special designs the kids do! Have that on display then the rest of the blocks put away.

  • I’m counting down until they are available to buy! I love that they have a platform to build on as well as storage. Only thing is colours would be nice

  • I just used plastic tubs to put the Lego in when they’d finished playing. Only problem was that they would have to destroy what they’d been making. These would have been a brilliant idea when the boys were little

  • Ripper idea. I always had tubs. Tubs and tubs of lego to store it in.

  • This is really useful.

  • It’s a nice storage box, but not really to go crazy about in my opinion.

  • have been using a similar and cheaper solution for the last 30 years .Using the largest green building boar I bought plastic boxes that fit the base boards and HeH presto we have the same idea. That is what Grandmas do with time with the kids !!!who needs to wait for Ikea to come to Australia try it out .wonderful . our 9 grandkids have used it for years and each child has their own building box. and with a set of wheelie drawers also from the reject shop have no lego on the floor . If lego is found on the floor and i step on it then kids have to do a extra job around the house for me.


    • “If lego is found on the floor and i step on it then kids have to do a extra job around the house for me”….the kids must be a bit older ?

  • Can’t wait for these! Will definitely getting one for my little boy! :) So nice that the price is IKEA friendly as well

  • When grandchildren arrived I brought out their Dads Lego, I bought a solid wooden coffee table with 2 big drawers it works great as the kids put the Lego on the top and when it is time to pack up they just slide it off the table into the drawers.
