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 DUPLO My First Fire Station 4.9 5 7 7
Wonderful traditional toy! OK, it's not wooden but it is traditional in the sense that Lego seems to be a toy that has lasted through the generations and is loved by most children. The pieces are a great size for my 2 year old and they can luckily put up with a bit of rough-housing (he's a little gung-ho!) - not flimsy at all. It's good value for money I feel and we love playing "Put out the fire" and "Save the dog" together. Keeps his attention for much longer than most other toys. This toy has improved his manual dexterity, imagination and concentration. Great! 17 January 2013
keeps a 2-year-old busy! I bought this for my grandson at Christmas. He loved it! Nice, chunky pieces for small hands to hold and lots of variations. Excellent. 06 January 2013

Duplo Arrived promptly and well packaged. My nephew has had great fun making and playing with this. 29 December 2011
Excellent, easy to use and great fun!! I bought this for my nephew for Christmas and he was very happy with it. It was easy to set up with him and he enjoyed playing with it all afternoon. His fire station didn't look quite as good as mine but then I am 26, so I'll cut him some slack. Solidly built, no broken bits. Just good old fashioned duplo quality!! 28 December 2011
