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 Building Plate, Green 4.4 5 12 12
Green, green grass Great base, excellent value. Base for constructions. 17 December 2014
Ideal for builders My nephews thought this was ideal for their Lego buildings, being green it is ideal for houses with gardens or for putting up trees for the park. My only gripe is that it could have been slightly bigger for the money. That said robust and well made. 16 January 2013
good for starters TheLego plate was to go with a Lego starter kit which i purchased at the same time.It is ideal for keeping things steady when little fingers are just learning. 07 January 2013
Would be really useful Unfortunately, the product was bent , therefore unable to use. 05 June 2012
Lego Building Plate Green I've been wanting to get one of these for ages for my little boys and i hadn't seen them in the shops. Got it through John Lewis online and its brilliant. My youngest keeps building houses with gardens on it. He says its grass. 28 March 2012
Lego Essential Good value for lego base that's useful for building any creation on. 27 January 2012
Small! but useful! bought this for my son to add to his growing 'City' collection he liked it but asked for another as they are small would suit any Lego fan!!! 27 January 2012
Very useful when bought together with one of the lego brick boxes Bought this to go with a large pink lego brick box as there was only one small plate enclosed. Very useful as my 4 year old only uses this one to build things on. Although it is a good product it is very expensive for what is just a plate of green plastic! 25 January 2012
