Last year, Lego introduced a new type of parts made of polyethylene made from sugar cane ethanol.

The design of the treehouse came fromLego Ideas, where enthusiasts can submit their own ideas. The original design was created by Kevin Fizer, a Frenchman, who was supported by more than 10,000 members of the Lego community.

Treehouse has two versions of crown tops.trees: green summer leaves, yellow and brown - autumn. The set is already available for VIP customers Lego $ 199.99, and for all others it will be available from August 1.
