Fun Facts About LEGO
LEGO is one of the amazing institutions of our time with probably the best range of toys ever made.
LEGO began like most amazing companies from very humble beginnings when in 1932 a Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen's carpentry business was embroiled in a recession and pretty much went bankrupt. To pay the bills, Ole started to produce little wooden toys in his work shop and marketed them locally. Two years later he titled his company LEGO the name of which is based on 2 Danish words "Leg" and "Godt" which implies to "play well" and thus LEGO was launched. His first toy was a wooden toy duck.
Ole Kirk Christiansen did not actually invent toy building bricks. He was inspired by a type of self locking building brick patented in Britain years earlier. LEGO acquired all the rights to this brick system when the inventor died and the earliest LEGO bricks were more or less an exact copy of this system.
LEGO bricks, as we know them at present, were first created in 1958. The bricks constructed then still interlock with the ones built today. This kind of consistency is among the factors that makes LEGO the terrific company that it is now.
LEGO pieces are engineered in such a way that there is a product for everyone. From infants to schoolchildren, youths to adults, from standard brick sets to the large inspired sets that include the LEGO Airport, the LEGO Taj Mahal and LEGO Tower bridge. Whether you want to start out from scratch making things up as you go or building one of the various predesigned model sets, LEGO will at all times deliver.
