Children from around the world all instantly recognise the colourful plastic building blocks that help boost their creativity and keep them occupied and entertained for hours.
Established in 1932, LEGO was founded in Billund by Kirk Kristiansen and his family. They chose the LEGO name for a two main reasons. First, “leg godt” means “play well” in Danish, but in Latin the term also refers to assembling things.
