Today, LEGO celebrates its 89th birthday. On this day way back in 1932, Ole Kirk Christiansen began making his iconic wooden toys. It wasn’t until 1958 when the first brick was patented by his son and the rest is history. If you haven’t seen The LEGO Story below, it’s a great animated video showing LEGO’s history.
I don’t think there’s anything special planned for today but we can surely expect something big for next year when LEGO celebrates nine decades of play. One thing is the 90th anniversary fan vote in which LEGO will be choosing a classic theme to make a set for.
