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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lego Camper Van Great, prompt service from John Lewis, delivered next day to our local Waitrose. My 10yr old son was kept busy for nearly 7hrs building this! Looks great. Very detailed. 26 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good not great The inside is great but the roof is temperamental. Missing 2 pieces from three bricks. One on the front and two inside. they took 3 weeks to arrive... 24 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great gift I bought this as a gift for my son's 40th birthday, he loves it and so does my grandson, they will have fun building it together. 29 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LEGO of the box! Fun to build and great to look at, get one quick.. 23 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by missing pieces I love the design of the VW van, it's just that I was really excited to finish it that I even ditched some of the house chores just to get it done but got disappointed of the pieces that are missing. I think I have almost 8 pieces missing. It's my first time to build a lego which is actually an "EXPERT" category. It wasn't that hard. Another thing,in some of the pages in the instruction book, some parts are not shown where it would be put. I know it's an "EXPERT" category but unlike the ferrari 10248 which is also in the EXPERT category, the parts were highlighted where it should be placed. i think that is very helpful. All in all, I like it and I'm excited to finish it soon that's why I am looking forward to get the missing pieces :) P.S. i hope that lego will still sell the bat tumbler:)..looking forward to have one. 17 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great My daughter collects camper van material and this looks brilliant would recommend it took quite a while to do but it was well worth the time and effort the instructions were very good 09 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! Authentic quality Difficult to find in the shops but ordered on line from the ever reliable John Lewis. What a fantastic Lego set. My son built it( he's 10) . not simple but he's not easily fazed. Very authentic! Some great features. Definitely more of a show piece than toy as far too fragile to play with. Lego at it's best. 08 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Exciting product for all ages Drove my daughter wild! She is a VW fanatic and loves it 08 March 2016
