Lego bricks and sets are manufactured by The Lego Group, which was founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Denmark who began making wooden toys in 1932. In 1947, he began making plastic toys, and in 1949 "Automatic Binding Bricks" were created, which is the beginning of the Lego bricks we know today. And here's an interesting bit of trivia: The word Lego comes from the Danish phrase "leg godt", which means "play well". Today, Lego bricks are available just about everywhere, and they are wildly popular with kids and adults alike. They're not cheap, but they do last forever. You can find them on sale at Toys R Us frequently, as well as other popular toy stores. Use coupon codes for Lego products to get the best deal on this childhood favorite.
