There have been many epic treehouses in pop culture. The Swiss Family Robinson had one. The Simpsons had one. Disney’s Tarzan had one. And countless others. Now, the LEGO Group has revealed official images of their very own LEGO Ideas Tree House. It is already one of the coolest arboreal tropical residences ever, and a worthy addition to epic treehouses of the past. You can check out images of this new set down below.

The LEGO Tree House is made up of more than 3,000 individual elements. It’s also packed with a ton of play-inspiring features, and includes a removable treetop along with three detailed cabins. This is one of the largest LEGO Ideas sets yet created, and maybe most importantly, it also contains the highest number of sustainable bricks ever in a LEGO set. All of the the plants and leaves in this set are made from sustainable materials. This is the first milestone in the LEGO Group’s ambitious commitment to make products using sustainable materials by 2030.

The LEGO Ideas Treehouse features a landscape base and three LEGO tree house cabins—a main bedroom, bathroom and kids’ room. The tree has interchangeable sets of green summer leaf elements and yellow and brown fall leaf elements. These and various plant elements on the base are all made from sustainable-plant-based polyethylene plastic, and the treetop and cabin roofs are removable to allow for easy access.

The model is packed with play-inspiring features including a buildable picnic table and seats, swing, bonfire, treasure map and hidden gem element to play out a treasure hunt. There’s also a wind-up crane on the balcony of the bedroom cabin. This unique and creative toy comes with parents and kids minifigures, plus a bird figure, to role-play fun family scenes. It also includes a booklet with building instructions and information about this LEGO Ideas set’s fan creator and LEGO designer.

The LEGO Ideas Tree House will be available August 1 (July 24 for LEGO VIP.) For more information, be sure to head over to the LEGO Ideas site.
