Legos have been around my entire life and are such a great way to encourage creativity and imagination through play. It is no surprise that Legos have been named “Toy of the Century” twice!
Lego’s “father” company was established in 1932 in a village in Denmark and adopted the name LEGO, which in Latin means “I put together”, in 1934. The original “binding brick” or Lego foundation brick, was first manufactured in 1949 and while we have seen a few changes and additions over the years, that “brick” and the company have been going strong ever since.*
Because of their durability, Lego bricks and sets can be passed down for generations. Pretty cool to have your grandfather’s toys and to still be able to play with them!
Today’s generation has a huge selection of Lego sets available, including video games and board games.
Plus, they have a line for just about any age starting with the Duplo sets for toddlers all the way up to the buildings with intricate details like moving steps, or trains with motors so they will actually run after they have been constructed.

Lego Sets For Girls
When I was a child, it seemed like Legos were a boy’s toy, even though there were plenty of girls who enjoyed building the Lego sets. However, it is obvious Legos are no longer designed with just boys in mind.
Today, there is a whole line exclusively created and dedicated to appealing to girls. It includes princess castles and pretty playhouses; pink cars and pink accessorized boats; and lots of female characters.
Lego Sets For Everyone
If you or your child likes castles, animals, robots, cars, trucks, trains, boats, monsters, or if you simply enjoy crafts, you are sure to find a Lego set to love.
Oh, and I am sure you will also enjoy the Lego apparel and accessories.
