IKEA and Lego Are Releasing a Collection of Storage Boxes That You Can Play With

You'll be able to use them to store your bricks — and to build with them.

Maybe you've always had a Lego collection, because the popular plastic bricks really are for everyone. Perhaps you signed up for a subscription service back when COVID-19 lockdowns first came into effect, because there are only so many puzzles one person can do. Either way, you probably need something to store your Lego in — and, in a collaboration due to hit Australia in 2021, IKEA now has a solution.

Obviously, IKEA has plenty of storage on offer. Walk through one of the Swedish retailer's shops and just try to come out without a basket, box, container or other type of storage in your big blue bag — it's virtually impossible. But, when its new Bygglek range arrives, it'll actually feature Lego studs. Keep your bricks in them, or use them to build with (or both).

As part of a team-up first announced in 2019, the collection will encompass four different sets: one of three small boxes, two different types of bigger boxes, and one of Lego bricks. All of the above will connect to existing Lego products, too, because of course it will.

We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. Arriving in early 2021. #BYGGLEK #IKEA #LEGO

IKEA hasn't announced exactly when the Bygglek products will hit Down Under, other than sometime in early 2021.

And while they're part of IKEA's children's range, everyone knows by now that Lego isn't just for kids. Nor are creative storage boxes, should you need to a few containers to keep something other than Lego in.

IKEA's Lego Bygglek collection will hit Australian stores sometime early in 2021 — keep an eye on the IKEA website for further details.
