After the very public sale of the LEGO Ideas Tree House by the LEGO Booth at the San Diego Comic Con, LEGO has finally announced the next LEGO Ideas set!
The LEGO Ideas Tree House (21318) was actually slated to be release right after the LEGO Flintstones set but got pushed back in favour of the LEGO Steamboat Willie (21317).
Nevertheless, here it is in all it’s leafy glory! All the 185 leaves and plants in the treehouse are derived from plant-based plastic which makes this the largest number of plant-based elements in a LEGO set so far.
One really cool aspect of the set is that they included orange yellow and orange brown coloured leaves that you could change to reflect the autumn season.
The set consists of 3,036 pieces which makes it the largest LEGO Ideas set to date. It stands at 37cm tall and comes with four minifigures and a parrot figure.
The recommended retail price are as follows: SGD$329.90 – US $199.99 – CA $269.99 – DE €199.99 – UK £179.99 – FR €199.99 – DK 1799DKK –AUS $279.99
It will be available in LEGO Brand Stores and Shop@Home on the 24th of July and other LEGO Certified Stores around the world on August 1st.

FACTS: The LEGO® IDEAS Treehouse & LEGO Group sustainable materials mission
LEGO IDEAS Treehouse
The LEGO Ideas Treehouse celebrates Kevin Feeser’s design for its endless creativity that its unique to the LEGO System in Play and its embodiment of the LEGO Group’s sustainable materials challenge.
All 185 leaves and plants in the treehouse are made from plant-based plastic – the largest number of plant-based elements in a LEGO set so far.
A list of the elements made from plant-based plastic is included on the top of the packaging.
The LEGO Group’s sustainable materials mission
The LEGO Group is on a mission to make all LEGO bricks sustainably by 2030.
For the LEGO Group, a sustainable material must have a reduced environmental footprint, be produced responsibly using renewable resources, and meet our high standards for safety, quality and durability.
High standards for sustainability, safety, quality and durability mean that there are no simple replacement materials on the market, and the LEGO Group is working with suppliers, research institutions and other industries to develop new materials to be used in the LEGO bricks of the future.
The LEGO Group has an ambition to find sustainable packaging alternatives by 2025 that are renewable, efficient and recyclable.
LEGO elements made from plants
All the trees, leaves and bushes and many of other elements in our LEGO sets, more than 80 types, are now made from green polyethylene, which is made from ethanol produced from sustainably sourced sugarcane.
The sugarcane is grown in Brazil, is sourced responsibly and does not compromise food security.
Polyethylene is just one of many materials used in LEGO elements, and the LEGO Group expects the materials of the future will be made from both plant-based and recycled sources.
Customers can expect the same high quality of our plant-based elements. The elements do not biodegrade…because we want to make safe, functional and durable products that can be played with for generations.
