Muji's New Playsets Combine Lego with Paper

Every once in a while a new product comes along that makes you go, "Hmmmm." That was my reaction when I saw these playsets from Muji. They combine Lego bricks and paper, resulting in, essentially, a mixed-media toy.

Here's how it works: you buy a "set" that includes Lego bricks and paper, with a pamphlet that shows some potential designs. You also have to buy a special hole punch that makes holes perfectly sized to receive Legos. And then... you let your imagination, and your kids', run wild.

The question is, though, do we need to add to a Lego toy? What additional value do we get from adding paper to a building toy? The idea is intriguing, but I'm not sure we're on board yet. What do you think?
