Playa Vista, Calif. ( August 27, 2013)Belkin announced today the availability of the first officially licensed and fully functional LEGO® Builder Case that is a certified LEGO® brick. The new LEGO® Builder cases for iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod Touch spark creativity within children and adults of all skill sets, inspiring them build their very own LEGO® designs directly onto the case’s integrated LEGO® baseplate.

“At LEGO we strive to build imagination into your everyday life, and the partnership with Belkin allows us to do that: offer a functional product that also serves as a stage for expression for anyone embracing a mobile lifestyle,” said Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, Chief Executive Officer of the LEGO Group.

The back of the Builder Case carries a true LEGO® baseplate —this is considered the key foundation to the LEGO® play experience. The baseplate is made by LEGO® factories to LEGO® standards and is integrated into the case in a way that’s durable and comfortable for everyday use. Other features of the case include a semi-flexible outer frame for shock-absorption, button protection, and unobstructed access to audio ports and speakers.

“Belkin and the LEGO® Group partnered to bring to life our shared belief in the unlimited potential of our imagination,” said Patrick Sullivan, Director of Product Management at Belkin. “The Builder cases are exceptional in that they come in the iconic LEGO® colors, are fun and protective….let the building begin.”
