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

LEGO Tower Bridge 5 5 4 4
MUCH WANTED PRESENT EXCELEENT VALUE FOR MAONEY AND IN STORE COLLECTION SERVICE 17 December 2014
FANTASTIC My 10 year old son had saved up for almost two years to buy this Tower Bridge and was not disappointed. Even thought the box says 16+ he managed over a two week period to do it all by himself. It was great he needed to take his time and concentrate as he usually builds normal lego kits before you can blink. The only downside as I saw it was that the packets containing the pieces were not numbered so it was a big search for the correct pieces but that said it kept my son occupied. Everyone is amazed at the model as it is very impressive and on the large side - for once the model is larger than the box it came in - rare for lego !! We would highly recommend this model even with its high price tag. Very impressed with John Lewis's price as it was the cheapest we could find and excellent click and collect service . 18 November 2014
Lego Tower Bridge My 7 and 9 year old boys have loved building Tower Bridge. Under the guidance of Dad who has given the boys simple parts to build on a daily basis they have easily coped with the building challenges. They are the envy of our next door neighbours who have also enjoyed watching Tower bridge take shape on a daily basis! A big thankyou to Great Grandad for such a generous and enjoyable gift.
