A Brief History of Lego

A Brief History of LEGO

The LEGO Group is a Danish toy company that was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen. The name “LEGO” is an abbreviation of two Danish words, “leg godt,” which means “play well.” LEGO began as a wooden toy company, but in 1949, the company introduced the now-iconic interlocking plastic bricks that we know today.

In the early years, LEGO bricks were simple in design and only came in a few basic colors. However, over time, the company expanded its product line to include more colors and a variety of different shapes and sizes of bricks.

LEGO sets began to feature specific themes in the 1960s, such as space exploration and medieval castles. In the 1970s, LEGO introduced its minifigure, a small plastic figure that could be customized with different accessories and clothing. This innovation helped LEGO sets become even more immersive and imaginative.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, LEGO continued to expand its product line, introducing new themes such as pirates, ninjas, and city life. In 1999, LEGO introduced its first licensed product line, based on the Star Wars franchise.

In the 2000s and 2010s, LEGO continued to innovate and expand its product line, introducing new themes such as Harry Potter, Marvel Superheroes, and The Lord of the Rings. In addition to physical sets, LEGO also launched video games, theme parks, and movies.

Today, LEGO remains one of the world’s most popular toy brands, with a wide range of products and an enthusiastic global fanbase.
