Play Well is the foundation of what powerhouse toy manufacturers name?
The name 'LEGO' is an abbreviation of the two Danish words "leg godt", meaning "play well".
The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. The company has passed from father to son and is now owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder.
It has come a long way over the past almost 80 years - from a small carpenter’s workshop to a modern, global enterprise that is now one of the world’s largest manufacturer of toys.
