Happy 60th Birthday Brick!

Lego Brick Birthday

60 years ago today the founder of The LEGO Company Godtfred Kirk Christiansen filed a patent for a little interlocking brick formed of studs and tubes.

A few months later patent approval was granted, and The LEGO Company became the owner of what would become probably the most valuable toy patent in history.

Six decades on and LEGO have become the largest toy maker on the planet, and even though Godtfred’s original patent has expired – allowing countless imitators to emerge – The LEGO Company continues to build its success upon a little plastic brick designed 60 years ago.
