Editor's 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.

Q & As

LEGO Minecraft The Forest Microworld 3 5 2 2
Great entertainment Bought this for my Grandson, aged 9, in case we had a rainy day on holiday. Fortunately, the weather was good, but it was a great diversion for him in the mornings before everyone was awake. As always, Lego have it right and the detail is first class whilst still giving plenty of scope for imaginative play. 07 August 2014
Paying For The Name Knowing the nature of Minecraft I had a feeling before buying this Lego set that it was going to be terrible and I was right. The set is filled with the worst of the Lego blocks: small, single, flat square pieces that fuse together like metal when placed on top of one another. If you are a parent who gives their kids in trouble for biting their Lego then expect them to end up in the bad books pretty quickly after getting this set. Really the only good parts of this set are the characters: Blue Steve, Red Steve and the Creeper. They are made of 3 – 4 small blocks each and have the faces of each character pretty accurately rendered on their blocks and look pretty good when made. However the handful of non-standard blocks you get to make them are nowhere near enough to warrant purchasing the set and not enough to warrant a second star in this review. But let’s get to the important part, what did the Birthday boy think of his gift? Well he loved it. Upon unwrapping it he saw the Minecraft box and quickly started making the island it portrays without even a moment’s thought as to how rubbish the set actually was. I doubt it’ll last though, once the box was thrown out it was pretty clear this wasn’t a set that could be used for lots of different models. In fact without the box it wasn’t even clear it was Minecraft related. I recommend seeing if you can get the Lego characters elsewhere separately and if not just buying them as action figures along with a different Lego set, perhaps a castle or something. You may end up spending the same amount and not having a Minecraft branded Lego set but you’ll have a gift that has a much longer life span. Once the Minecraft box is ripped open and thrown out your left with a regular Lego set of the worst pieces which you paid over the odds for. 26 April 2014
