We feel that play makes the home and the world better. That’s why we’ve created BYGGLEK – boxes and bricks that make it easy to play, every day.
This is not an ordinary box with a lid. It’s a treasure chest that stimulates playfulness, a house to furnish, a staircase and a building site where creativity reigns – and certainly more, it’s up to you.
In this giant box you can fit lots of bricks or slightly bigger treasures – yet there’s more. You can even build and play on the lid or create your own secret world inside the box.
On the BYGGLEK box there is a small square – perfect for a window, a balcony or for building something that shows what’s inside or who the box belongs to.
Perfect to combine with BYGGLEK bricks – a package filled with playfulness, 200 bricks in different colours, shapes and sizes, as well as 1 practical tool that makes building playfully easy.
Playing and building is fun for both children and adults. Maybe you can create a secret fantasy world together which is full of fun things that only you know about?
Recommended for ages from 5 years.
This product bears the CE mark.
The 201-piece BYGGLEK brick set is sold separately.
Not just any box
With BYGGLEK, IKEA wants to make it easier and more fun for builders of all ages to make great creations – and to take breaks. Since no matter how immersed you can get in the colourful building blocks, sometimes you need to eat and sleep. If the latest creation is left on the floor, it can easily get stepped on. In BYGGLEK everything is safe – and easy to continue playing with.
When the LEGO Group saw a storage need for their famous building blocks and contacted Children's IKEA with "Do you want to play?", it was like finding a fun new friend, says designer Andreas Fredriksson. "We have the same view of children's play and that everything is easier when having fun."
The box becomes part of play.
IKEA have worked with storage and smart organising for a long time, but here Andreas and the rest of the team added a new dimension. “We wanted to make a box that is part of children’s play and creativity, rather than hiding it away. In BYGGLEK there is lots of room for all kinds of fun”, explains Andreas, showing how you can play both in the box and on the lid, which has the same distinctive studs as the building blocks. "And on the side of the box, we made a recess where you can build a window or decorate – making the box more personalised."
Easy to tidy away – and play with again
The dimensions of all BYGGLEK boxes are adapted for our storage furniture, making them easy to store – and the latest creation can even be displayed on the lid! "Yes, it’s important for children to be able to display and be proud of what they’ve built", who wants it to feel just as easy to take out the box from where it’s being stored and start playing again. “Even if it’s only for a little while before school or bedtime, it's nice if BYGGLEK can contribute to more time for play together."
Our take on plastic
Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight, and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of their products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and IKEA takes this very seriously. As part of their larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil-based material, they are working hard to change all plastic in their home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. IKEA's ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in their products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows them to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens the dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of their plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and their aim is to reach 100%. As they add products made from recycled and renewable materials to their offer, IKEA hopes to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of IKEA's commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in their restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. IKEA mainly uses recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
