Once Upon a Time there was a man called Ole Kirk Kristiansen who lived in the small town of Billund in Denmark. Ole set up his own business as a carpenter making furniture. As the years went by he decided he wanted to make other things and so the story began...
Ole started to make and sell wooden toys which he thought was a lot more fun
Ole held a competition with his employees to find a name for his company, he won the competition himself with the name LEGO
The LEGO® Brick as we know it was invented and patented
The LEGO® Minifigure is born
The LEGO® employees were often interrupted by all the visitors who wanted to see what you can build with LEGO bricks. So one day someone suggested “why not build a park where visitors can build with LEGO bricks?” LEGOLAND® was born!
