Cleanup and playtime blur into one.

Messy kids playing with Lego bricks can lead to disastrous results for adult feet. In an effort to combat plantar injuries, Ikea and Lego collaborated on a line of storage boxes called the Bygglek.

Bygglek combines the Swedish megastore's knack for making clever organization tools and the toy brand's fun factor. Each box features a lid with Lego studs, which acts as a separate playarea to add Lego bricks, The white storage boxes come in three sizes: small, which comes in a three-pack ($10), medium ($13) and large ($15).

"Where adults often see mess, children see a stimulating creative environment," Andreas Fredriksson, an Ikea designer, said in a press release. "And Bygglek will help bridge the gap between these two views to ensure more creative play in homes around the world."

Additionally, Ikea will be releasing a 201-piece Lego set for $15, which will not have a specific end product. Build whatever you want, because this may be one of the rare Ikea products where an instruction manual is unnecessary.

Your new favorite boxes and toys release in Europe and North America in October 2020, with a worldwide rollout expected at a later date.
