Happy 122nd Birthday to Ole Kirk Christiansen

0

122 years ago today, the founder of LEGO was born. Ole Kirk Christiansen came from an impoverished family in Filskov, Denmark and trained as a carpenter. He started making wooden toys in 1932 and a couple of years later, the rest is history. Unfortunately, Ole never got to see how successful LEGO really had become. I like to wish the creator of one of the best toy companies a very happy birthday! Without him, this site or any other LEGO site wouldn’t have been possible. If you haven’t watched The LEGO Story before, I recommend you do so to learn more about Ole and the LEGO company. If you’ve watched it before, why not watch it again 🙂
