Brand Story

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.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Station The train station is exceptionally all around outlined, with fluctuated pieces and awesome playability. It is nice that this accompanies tracks as it assisted with extending my general train set up. I love the 2 stores on the platform, particularly the Deli. I I also like the board with the train stops and distances. This set runs well with the Heavy Haul Train however is more suited to the passenger train. I think the back of the station should be closed up for privacy and reality. It would also be nice to have a small passenger train included rather than the taxi. However, I am fond of the classiness of the yellow taxi. 11 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Build The train station is a very well designed, varied pieces, great playability set. it is great that this comes with tracks as it helped with expanding our overall train set up. The 2 stores on the platform are great, especially the Deli. My 5 year old son and I had this set built in under 2 hours. This set goes well with the Heavy Haul Train but is probably even more suited to the passenger train. 03 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by easy Easy to make..thought it would be more interesting. 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Neat building! My 7 year old found it easy to build and loves it. It blends very well with the super train (?). 06 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best train station ever I bought this for my great-grandsons aged 5 and 6. Their parents bought them the remote controlled train and I also got them extra track. We have a long tradition of Lego in our family. I bought the first Lego bricks for my son (not the boys grandfather) 54 years ago. They came in a square tube and the lid was the base for whatever one wanted to build. We still have some of the original bricks! We will continue the Lego tradition in our family. 30 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Set! I own many LEGO sets, and this is by far one of my favorites! My favorite part about it was the LEGO store. The set also comes with some great pieces and figures. I recommend it to all! 23 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent Build, Good Value Got this set today and was very satisfied. One thing though, the piece count was low, and $65 is too much. Lego should have added another taxi and a railroad crossing and MORE railroad track but otherwise this is a fantastic build. I liked the Lego store and the food kiosk. The taxi was cool, and the station is pretty decent-looking. $45 would be better price. The first problem I noticed on the box is the taxi is on the other side of the train station. So...how do the people get across the track to take the taxi? Oh well, it's the idea that counts, right? 26 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Nice Little Set for Train Enthusiasts I had to have a train station in my Lego world and since I didn't buy the earlier version (7937) I had to get this one. If you have trains and track, you simply have to have a train station, too. The build was not difficult, but getting the stickers to line up properly was a bit of a stretch for my fingers and eyes. The station itself is easy on the eye with an almost futuristic look and is packed with great details such as the Lego toy boxes, security cameras and of course the coffee machine. The cross-track roof is a very impressive addition and makes the station look more realistic. Two things annoyed me. 1) When I first drove one of my trains past the train station there was a great bang and some parts were flying through the air. The pantographs that are on top of the train would not fit under the station roof if they were extended. I had to flatten them out in order to avoid similar problems. Then I got annoyed with the fact that the trains looked somewhat watered down without the pantographs extended and added a row of 2x2 grey bricks under the sloped bricks on the station roof and a 1x2 grey brick on the top of the structure that holds up the other end of the cross-track roof. Problem solved. 2) I know this is most likely exclusive to the particular set that I bought, but when I opened the packaging I noticed that the page with all the stickers for the set was folded in half. I tried my best to smoothen the stickers out but to this day the sticker on the side of the yellow taxi is peeling off. 18 February 2015
