As their name suggests, LEGO (from the Danish 'leg godt', or 'play well') have made it their mission to improve children's imagination through play.
The company was founded in 1932, and has remained in the Kristiansen family for three generations, evolving from a carpenter's workshop to an international enterprise and third-largest global toy manufacturer.
When Ole Kirk Kristiansen established the business in Billund, Denmark, the company manufactured ironing boards, stepladders, wooden toys and tools, and gradually shifted to wooden ducks, Tiddlywinks, Automatic Binding Bricks, plastic tractors, letter bricks, bilo-fix, number bricks, London buses, LEGO trains, doll houses, family figures, cars and caravans, castles, spaceships and so on.
The LEGO brick has been awarded 'Toy of the Century' twice, and was launched in its present form in 1958.
The LEGO Group has over 30 branches across Europe and North America.
They are currently building the LEGO House in the heart of Billund, a 24-metre tall building consisting of 8,500 m2, to give visitors the full experience of the story behind the brick. The project is expected to be complete in 2016, and up until then, Billund shops will benefit from exclusive rights to sell a model of the LEGO House.
The LEGO Brand stands by its core values: imagination, caring, learning, quality, fun and creativity. Its motto is 'Only the best is good enough', safeguarding the founder's spirit.
LEGO's mission is to inspire the builders of tomorrow by learning through play, which reveals their creativity and develops essential skills.
LEGO currently strives to fulfil its 'Planet Promise' to have a positive impact on the planet by setting strategic ambitions, such as: eliminating product recalls, supporting learning for millions of children, achieving unrivalled levels of renewable energy usage, and reducing its waste levels.
