LEGO

The story of LEGO goes all the way back to the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, who began making wooden toys in 1932. Two years later, his company came to be called "LEGO," from the Danish phrase “leg godt,” which translates to "play well." Fast forward to 1949 when LEGO began manufacturing the toy we all know and love today. Since then, LEGO and its namesake toy has inspired countless subcultures, movies, games, competitions, artworks, and amusement parks.
