Since its official inception in 1949, LEGO has been a staple in almost every child's bedroom. Now, 75 years later, even adults have taken up building small cities, rose bouquets, and more using the tiny, colorful building blocks. As the decades have gone by, LEGO has unleashed more advanced, beautiful, and downright cool creations that are giving everything from coloring books to puzzles a run for their money. And, the brand's most recent design is a show-stopper to say the least: a LEGO Icons retro-inspired radio.

For anyone raising an eyebrow at the fact that we put the words "beautiful" and "LEGO" in the same sentence, hear us out: We've already established that, in some circumstances, LEGOs can, indeed, be chic. In fact, a few interior designers agreed that there are elegant ways to decorate with LEGOs. So, if you're already curating your living space with midcentury-inspired pieces, why not include this homage to the famed music styles of the 1950s and '60s? Step into all the nostalgic feels while adding a touch of vintage charm to your home with LEGO's latest creation. Whether you're looking for a new creative outlet or a centerpiece for your coffee table, the LEGO Icons sound system's vibrant yet tasteful colors add a pop of personality to any space.

But this isn't just any ordinary LEGO set. With its 906 meticulously crafted pieces, this project—intended for ages 18 and up—promises not only a fun challenge, but operates like an authentic retro radio (who doesn't love cleverly hidden technology?) After assembly, the set includes a dial for toggling the sound on and off or shifting between pre-recorded sounds within the soundbrick. And the best part? Music enthusiasts have the option to stash a mobile phone through the rear panel while playing their own tracks, which will never fail to wow us every time. After reading all this, the price, which is $100, seems justifiable—the radio set does a lot! Don't miss out on the chance to bring home this immersive piece of LEGO history.
