If you don't already know, Lego is a line of plastic construction toys that are manufactured by The Lego Group, which is a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. The company's flagship product, Lego, consists of colorful interlocking plastic bricks or blocks as they are known. The bricks are accompanied by an array of gears, figurines that are called mini figures, and various other parts. Lego bricks, blocks, and pieces can be assembled and connected ina variety of ways, to include objects, vehicles, spaceships, boats, buildings, and working robots to name a few. The Lego creations that you build are only limited by your imagination. Anything constructed with the blocks can then be taken apart again, and the pieces can be used to make other objects.

Back in 1998, LEGO was one of the original toys to be inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame, and it's easy to see why. LEGO is 85 years old, with the LEGO Group being founded in 1932 in Denmark. Lego went from being made in a small carpenter’s workshop to being the world’s third largest manufacturer of toys. A LEGO block from 1958 can still interlock with a LEGO brick made today. LEGO blocks are part of a universal system, so that regardless of the year that they were made and the set that the Lego piece belongs to, each piece is compatible with existing pieces. The name LEGO was created by using the first two letters of the Danish words of Leg and Godt, which translated means play well. This is just one of the stories you will find on the Daily Dot site.
