Available on October 1, 2020, the collaboration will solve the only problem everyone has with their LEGOs—their storage. “Developed with parents and children in mind, BYGGLEK brings play and storage together to fuel creativity while creating more space for play in the home,” IKEA told in a press release.

The new BYGGLEK line will consist of four different products

“The collection allows children to keep their creativity going even when the physical activity stops and helps adults create organization without disrupting play. In short, BYGGLEK enables children to play, display, and replay their creations,” IKEA explained to the media.

Including one set of 3 small boxes, two sets of larger boxes, and a set of LEGO bricks

“The box itself can be a house, a swimming pool, a sports arena, ” said Rasmus Buch Løgstrup, the LEGO designer who leads the collaboration. “There is no right or wrong.” In the United States, the new IKEA x LEGO line will be available in October. Prices start at $9.99 for a set of three small boxes and go up to $14.99 for the largest box.
