Lego is the world famous building brick. Its name is derived from Danish words leg godt which means play well. The Lego Group is a family-owned business based in Denmark. It was in 1932 when Ole Kirk Kristiansen established the brand. It is now owned by Ole’s grandson Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen.
Over the past 80 years, the simple carpenter’s workshop has turned into a respected global enterprise. As a matter of fact, Lego is considered as the largest toy manufacturer in the world. The brand’s famous product is the LEGO brick. It’s been named twice as “Toy of the Century.” The same interlocking principle is still used until today.
