LEGO has to be one of our all time favourite kids’ toys.

Ole Kirk Kristiansen started making wooden toys in his garage at 1932.

In 1934 his company became known as LEGO, from the Danish “leg godt” which, translated literally, means “play well”.

After years of research and development, it was only in 1958 that LEGO began producing the “plastic interlocking building blocks”, that they are famous for and that have been loved by every generation since then.

The bricks produced in 1958 are actually still compatible with today’s modern bricks.

LEGO was named “Toy of the Century” by Fortune magazine in 2000.

There are LEGO toys, robots, video games, tv shows, theme parks and movies. There is even LEGO art!

Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen’s, the grandson of LEGO’s founder, is now one of the richest men in the world ($6.5 billion in 2009 – Forbes).

We love LEGO!
