This is the first instalment of a weekly feature inspired by our fantastic range of Patent Prints – first up Lego Man!
Ahh , Lego – a toy as instantly recognisable as any other.
Such a simple concept – yet one which has captured the imagination of millions of kids (and adults!) for almost 70 years. We visited Legoland for G’s 5th Birthday earlier this and it’s incredible to think that such a small toy can spawn such an empire.
Over 600 Billion Lego pieces have been made (of which around 100 billion have disappeared down the sofa / in the dog / into thin air) and there are now over 5000 types of ‘Lego Man’ adding up to a tiny army of almost 4 Billion cheery yellow chaps!
If your house is anything like ours, Lego pieces form a constant threat to un-slipper-ed feet, but did you know you could be stepping on a small fortune? Before you go rooting through the little ones Lego box, most of these were limited to only a tiny production run – but it’s fascinating to see how desirable these little plastic figures have become…!
