Inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow with Lego

It’s the most popular toy in the world, it’s Lego, a line of plastic construction bricks that are manufactured by The Lego Group, a privately held company based in Denmark. The company’s flagship product, Lego, consists of colorful interlocking plastic bricks, figurines and other accessories. Anything constructed can be taken apart again, and the pieces reused to make new things for years of enjoyment. The Lego Group began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks in 1949. Several movies, board games, books, magazines LEGOwear Clothes and six LEGOLAND amusement parks have been developed under the brand. Over the years, Lego has licensed themes from numerous film franchises and video games. These include Batman, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Minecraft. In 2015 Lego became the “world’s most powerful brand” and still is to this day. Lego began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, home of the company, who began making wooden toys in 1932. In 1934, his company came to be called “Lego”, derived from the Danish phrase leg godt , which means “play well”. In 2011, Space Shuttle Endeavour brought 13 Lego kits to the International Space Station, where astronauts built models to see how they would react in microgravity, as a part of the Lego Bricks in Space program. Lego is timeless; Lego bricks from 1958 still interlock with those made today……Ed
