Collecting construction sets is loved by children and adults from all over the world. National Lego Day is dedicated to one of the largest companies whose products have been pleasing customers for over seventy years. Playsets feature buildings, elements of nature, vehicles, and even people.
The holiday is usually celebrated on January 28. It was on this day in 1958 that G. Christiansen first presented his development of the designer. According to his idea, each element is connected with a group of others, thereby forming a huge and complex system. It adds durability and reduces the chance of breakage during a fall.
Godtfred managed to protect the unique design from theft. He did everything possible to ensure that his creation was seen by millions. In fact, the company itself was created by his hands. The Danish carpenter made wooden toys early in his career when he came up with the idea for the name. Now it is familiar to everyone.
One of the first founders of the company purchased an injection molding machine, with which they began to produce plastic elements. The first part appeared in 1949. In one decade, the company was completely transformed, expanded, and products appeared in forty countries. Lego is now a global enterprise without peer.
- In 2014, for the first time, a film was released, consisting entirely of elements of Lego products. The idea of creating it came to the mind of a Hollywood producer when he watched his son enthusiastically play. At the box office, the film collected over four hundred and fifty million dollars and was a huge success.
- Over the entire history of the company’s existence, four billion different characters have been created.
- In 2009, the architect came up with and brought to life a project of a real house made of Lego plastic bricks.
