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 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic, Fun and Educational We bought one of these after using the kit at a robotics event at the local university. The box comes with instructions to build one robot, the software includes four more with about another 10 available for free download. The software is free to download so you can always take a look at the robots / programming environment before purchasing. My girls (10 and 12) have spent hours playing with this and writing their own programs and we've only built two of the robots so far. The programming language is very visual, intuitive and easy to use (very similar to Scratch). I would advise buying a cheap bluetooth dongle for your PC (if it doesn't have one built in) so that you can upload and run programs without having to continually connect / disconnect the USB cable. First time around though you will need to plug in via the USB cable and update the firmware on the brick before using bluetooth. The robots can also be controlled by installing the app on your phone (Android / iOS), this is great fun (especially the snake) and great to get the robots up and running quickly. Overall we're very pleased with the kit and JL had the best price deal. 02 June 2015
