LEGO History – Building Imagination One Brick at a Time

Lego History

Lego toys were invented in Denmark in 1949 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen and his son Godtfred

The modern Lego has been around for over 50 years. But in fact, the history of Lego toys dates back many more years. The Lego Group was founded in Denmark in 1934 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter who had become quite adept at making wooden toys. For over a decade the company successfully sold a wide range of pull-along wooden toys ranging from animals to cars and trucks.

In 1947 the company made what was considered a massive investment at the time in a plastic injection molding machine. This investment gave birth to a new line of plastic toys which paid off handsomely for the company. Then in 1949 the Lego Group produced the first of what would become a legend in its own right: “Automatic Binding Bricks”. Although slightly different from the Lego bricks we have today, this development paved the way for what has become the modern Lego. Similar in size, form, and function, the Automatic Binding Brick continued to be improved upon by the company. In 1954, the company officially registered the “LEGO” name as a trademark.

During the 1960’s LEGO became a household name and an international sensation. By the end of that decade, the Lego group had sold legos in more that 42 countries around the world and had opened a theme park in Denmark that attracted more than half a million visitors in its first year.

In the 1970’s Lego branched out to create toys for boys, girls, pre-schoolers and advanced builders. This decade brought about two important developments for Lego: The classic Legos sets themes and the world-famous Legos figures, also known as Minifigs or Minifigures. The company continued its meteoric rise during the 80’s and 90’s with expansion into education, ideo games, mail order catalogs, the launch of theFamily Fun at Legoland, California official Lego website, and the company’s own branded retail stores around the world.

It was also in the 90’s that the company took one of its most notable risks that has paid off massive dividends. In 1999 Lego began using licensed themes to market their products. Star Wars, their first licensed debut was a record-breaking success for the company. Since then, Lego has strategically partnered with several cartoon and movie icons to create theme sets that include Batman Legos, Harry Potter Legos, Spongebob Legos, Indiana Jones Legos, Spiderman Legos, Toy Story Legos, and many more.

Advantages of Lego Sets

Lego Sets help the child right from the early years (as early as 3-4 years of age) in developing tactile skills (skills of using fingers) and helps in hand and eye coordination. I can provide some ways in which it helps any child:

Lego Sets help the child right from the early years (as early as 3-4 years of age) in developing tactile skills (skills of using fingers) and helps in hand and eye coordination. I can provide some ways in which it helps any child:

  1. Tactile or Motor Ability – as you read earlier, this is the ability of the child to use his hands and fingers in coordination with the eyes. Children that have developed this skills are later on found to be quite good at using the keyboard on the computer, as well as playing video games (purely from a hand and eye coordination point of view – I am not talking about video games).
  2. Thinking in 3 Dimension – this is the skill to understand 3 dimensional figures and objects. Children have been found to be good at imagining figures from a geometric perspective, especially lines, angles, and various shapes like cubes etc.
  3. Mechanics – this is probably one of the best ways to understand how machines work. The gears, pulleys and motors that Lego allows to be experimented with are truly awesome. Kids today as young as 7 years are in a position to determine what a rack and pinion connection is or a differential gear. I recall when I was a kid this knowledge was not easily available or if available was only in the books or if your family took you to the neighbourhood car mechanic.
  4. Imagination – using the various pieces that are available on a Lego Set, you can let the imagination of your child run wild. I have seen kids building their own air craft carriers, submarines, tanks, cities, ships, dams, tankers, robots, exotic buildings and whatnot. The ability to create something using these blocks is unparalleled.
  5. Lego Sets keep children occupied on their own for hours together. Especially during vacation time or holidays, these sets provide a good avenue for children to remain creatively occupied and expand their imagination. It provides parents the space to allow their children to experiment within the confines of their home. Most importantly they keep children away from the bad effects of being constantly on the internet or watching TV.
  6. Lego Sets have helped children develop patience and perseverance. Many a time, a child could get stuck temporarily in understanding the fitting of the various blocks, but if the child sticks and overcomes these blocks, then the end result in terms of increasing the child’s self confidence is increased.
  7. It helps children develop discipline and following a process. This is valuable in their later years as they grow up to become responsible citizens.
  8. It has been found that children who are good at Lego are generally good at studies, especially mathematics and science, and tend to take a career in science or engineering.

Thus, given above are some of the very clear advantages that I have noticed among children over the last many years.
