Happy 122nd Birthday to Ole Kirk Christiansen


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 🙂
