LEGO has been making children and adults happy since 1949. At that time, father and son Ole and Godtfred Christiansen created the first LEGO brick. But they weren't successful right away. Discover how their journey began, and what products they offer today!
LEGO started with low sales and a lot of its items were returned from vendors. Wooden toys dominated the market, and this wasn't easy to change. A few years later, LEGO designed the new lego bricks. The new bricks easily snapped together, were smaller and more colourful. Gradually they gained popularity and became a global sensation.
Meaning of the Word LEGO
Have you ever wondered what the word "LEGO" means? It's not the name of one of the owners, nor is it short for "Let's go". In fact, it is a combination of the two Danish words "Leg" (to play) and "Godt" (well), something like "play well". LEGO can also be interpreted from Latin as "I put together".
Do you know how many LEGO bricks are produced a year? No? We didn't think so. It's hard to believe, but it's about twenty billion bricks or 600 pieces per second.
LEGO Building Sets
DUPLO is aimed at toddlers starting from 1.5 years. They're twice the size of regular bricks, which is ideal for toddler's hands. They help with children's development skills and will have them playing for hours on end.
An ideal transition from LEGO DUPLO to classic building sets is through LEGO Juniors. You can choose from fairy tales, movies, and daily routine themes, such as a family home or the grocery store.
