The LEGO system offers endless creative possibilities to build structurally, and so does paper with its many colors, patterns and textures suitable for folding, drawing and cutting. Combining these two creative tools with a LEGO system paper puncher, we will open up a new creative dimension for kids and their parents to explore and express themselves through.

LEGO bricks are not just a toy, but a system that inspires children's creativity. MUJI also seeks to inspire creativity with products that appeal to a simple and reflective lifestyle. As both brands are based on strong values, we have worked together to create a new concept that can be of great value to children.
