Muji and Lego Collaborate

Muji, minimalist makers of everything under the sun, have teamed up with everyone’s favorite toy Lego to create new creative packs that are distinctly in touch with their brand. These sets feel like they’re more in the spirit of how Legos used to be, strictly based on a persons creativity. Nowadays all you see on the shelves are packed sets with instructions on how to make something, which to me takes all the fun out of it.

Muji has decided to combine the blocks with brightly colored paper and a hole puncher, giving these sets an entirely new dimension. They come with some pre-cut designs, I would assume to get you thinking, but other then that it’s all up to you. Lego needs to get their act together and start making more like this and less Indiana Jones playsets.

    They seriously need a MUJI store in Los Angeles.

    These are beautiful and I agree I’d love to see Lego doing more things like this – that said there’ll be no dissing the Indiana Jones playsets – the ‘Race for the Stolen Treasure’ takes pride and place in my room – and it comes with a miniature lego version of Harrison Ford for flips sake! Harrison Ford!

    This is such a brilliant way to bring life to your old toys. Thanks for sharing it.

    Lego has been putting out sets since at least the 50’s. Personally I’ve always liked seeing the amazing designs their build teams come up with, definitely inspired me to build more intricate structures.

    My favorite thing about Lego is that in the 100+ sets I’ve purchased over my lifetime, never once has there been a piece missing, in fact I always ended up with a few extra.

    that is AWESOME. Lego is the best- my dad always used to help me build huge lego monsters.
