Editors Notes

The company that was destined to become LEGO started life as being a small workshop that produced wooden toys, run by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932. The name ‘LEGO’ was adopted in 1934, coming from the Danish phrase ‘leg godt’, which means ‘play well’. It wasn’t until 1947 that they started producing plastic toys, with the first version of the now infamous interlocking bricks coming in 1949.
 
They weren’t quite the bricks that people are used to nowadays, being made from a different material and having a slightly different locking system. It was actually Christiansen’s son Godtfred Kirk that saw the potential for the bricks to become a tool for creative play and in 1958, the modern brick design was born. From this date, despite variation in the design and purpose of individual pieces over the years, each remains compatible in some way with previous pieces. So you could have a LEGO set from 1958 and it would still be completely compatible with a modern set.
 
Since the 1960, thousands of sets have been released covering everything from Aliens to the Wild West. The only area that the company has never tackled directly is military-themed sets, because Ole Kirk set a policy that they must never make war seem like child’s play. The largest ever LEGO set to date is a scale-model of the Taj Mahal, which was made out of 5922 pieces.
 
The LEGO Group's motto is ‘det bedste er ikke for godt’, which roughly translates to "only the best is the best". Ole Kirk Christiansen came up with this phrase to encourage workers to always produce the highest quality toys possible.
 
Nowadays, LEGO makes a vast range of toys for all ages, as well as teaching materials for children, which are distributed in over 130 countries. The company has approximately 10,000 employees and is the world's third largest manufacturer of play materials.

LEGO City Passenger Train 4.9 5 9 9
Great Lego set My son had saved his money up to buy this train set and he is thrilled with it, it has kept he quiet for ages. 18 March 2013
Great for young train fans We bought this for our son for Christmas. He absolutely loves it and the train itself seems pretty robust, which is great given that his 2 and a half year old brother is also desperate to play with it! We built the train in advance as we knew he'd be desperate to play with it straight away, it took a while but was easy with the instructions. Overall, a great buy which should be played with for years to come. We bought an extra pack of track but my son is already wishing for another train so he can make an even better track! 27 December 2012
Good value for money Colourfully packaged. Quick delivery. Easy web site to use. 09 December 2012
grandson's present looks a good buy - disappointed that old tracks don't link up 08 December 2012
Fun for big kids too This was part of a birthday present for a very big kid. The product its self was fun to build, engaging for both kids and adults and results in massive grins all round. Recommended for kids of all ages. 25 September 2012
excellent quality My nephews were delighted with this product, bought as a Christmas present. I think that it is very sturdy so will last a long time. 29 January 2012
Fantastic Lego set Hours of fun, my 8 year old made this independently and was really chuffed with the results, it has been played with since much more than other sets and is enjoyed with friends also. Highly recommended for lego fans. 16 November 2011
Excellent Lego product Bought this on an offer so didn't pay full price but is an excellent toy for my 6 year old. Also bought extra track as thought he would get bored quickly with just a circular track which it came with. 16 November 2011
