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.

Q & As

LEGO Technic 4x4 Crawler 5 5 2 2
Husband loves it I bought this Lego for our anniversary, he's 47 but loves to make the large Technic Lego so he was really pleased with this gift. The price at John Lewis was £5 cheaper than everywhere else and had free delivery so I'm pleased too. 25 February 2014
Great fun, go anywhere Technic model Positives: - Impressive model inc. full working r/c 4-WD drive-train, working live axle suspension, and 4 wheel steering. - The drive motors are housed on each axle unit, rather like modern trains and electric cars and this lowers the centre of gravity a bit and puts more weight directly onto the wheels. Very stable. - One large steering servo motor is housed centrally and steers both ends. - Doors open and the on/off switch is accessed here. The truck body lifts to access battery box (6 x AA) - Good battery life. - The remote control works well and the system is simple, but effective. Forward / back and left right, as is the usual. - The wheels have Technic axles and 3 pins for extra strength in the wheel hub-axle connection. - "Reasonable" value, you get 1327 parts and a few left over. - Lots of new components too inc. NEW servo motor for the rack / pinion steering. -You also get the remote control gear which is useful and some of the largest wheels currently available. Very responsive remote control. -I thought the instructions were good and it's built as modules, as you might expect, and this works well. - It climbs well and only slippery surfaces defeat it. See online videos for info. - It's relatively durable, a 5 yr old used it under supervision and didn't break it, yet. - The suspension is springy and it works well. Negatives: - A bit slow: but it is crawler, not a dune buggy! (You could change the gearing on the portal gears (web search this term!) - perhaps for more speed?) - Boring alternative "samey" lorry model? - Truck body / shell is a bit flimsy - opportunity for upgrade though if in the mood. - £ per brick some might see this as expensive, depending on when you buy it. Less able builders might need some extra patience or help in places, as usual. Overall, I'd recommend this model- all the family will want a go and it should give a few hours of fun and more. 03 January 2013
