LEGO's and Ole Kirk Christiansen, Who made the first LEGO?

Updated on July 22, 2012

LEGO's and Ole Kirk Christiansen - A Quick, Short Story of LEGO

LEGOs are a plastic building toy, created by Ole Kirk Christiansen, in 1949. Ole, being a carpenter, started by making wooden toys in his workshop, in 1932. In 1934 his company began to be called LEGO, from the danish words "leg goht". The company expanded to plastic building by 1947. In 1949, they started making the self-interlocking bricks that they are known for today. They connected by means of several circular studs with a rectangular bottom. The blocks were able to stick together and lock, but not so hard that you would have a difficult time disconnecting them. The motto of the company is "det bedste er ikke for godt" which means, roughly, "Only the best is good enough." This motto was created by Ole to encourage his workers to never lessen the quality of the company's progress.

Over time, the LEGO group grew into a very high-quality toy brand. Selling products and customers giving good reports at a good rate they became a very successful toy brand. Continue on this lens to read about the countless LEGO products they have had, and currently have now!
