Everything You Need to Know About Legos

LEGO is a staple in everyone’s childhood and sometimes even into adulthood. LEGOs are a brilliant way for everyone to get creative and have an outlet for their creative energy. Today, LEGO has become something bigger, even having an extremely popular movie franchise. 

Let’s take a deep dive into LEGO and learn more about these fascinating toys.

How It All Started

How It All Started lego

The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. It is an abbreviation of two Danish words, “leg godt”, which means “play well”. From the beginning, LEGO has been passed down, generation to generation, from father to son and is currently owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder.

LEGO has been named “the toy of the century” twice and is most known for its brick foundation. In 1958 the brick was launched with the idea of getting people’s imagination going and letting creative ideas emerge through play.

How To Get Creative with LEGO

Free building with LEGOs is one of the best ways to work the creativity part of your brain. It lets you do whatever you like with the LEGOs, instead of following one of the company's kits and clicking together the pieces by following instructions. Some fun ideas to use LEGOs for and let the creativity shine is doing stuff you like, maybe build a fish tank out of LEGOs.

You can use them to help with math and learning numbers or create your own LEGO gift box. LEGOs can even be used to create multiple creative outlets, like making a chess table that you can later use for a chess game. If you’re a lover of books, create two bookends with your LEGOs.

The possibilities are endless when getting creative with your LEGOs, like making a lantern or flower vase. If you can put your mind to it, you can probably create the idea out of LEGOs.

The model kits come in various concepts that allow everyone to have fun and infinite brick-built possibilities. One of the collectible models are Central Perk Café and The Friends Apartment which are created by fans of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. sitcom.
