50 years of the LEGO® Brick
1932 - Ole Kirk Christiansen is a master carpenter and cabinetmaker in Billund (Jutlandia) He begins to make domestic utensils and wood toys.
1934 - He organizes a contest between his workers to choose the name of the company. The chosen name is LEGO®, that is an abbreviation of the Danish expression Leg Godt (I play well).
1942 - A fire destroys the factory of LEGO with all the plans and designs. Ole Kirk works to remake everything that had been burned until re-floating the company.
1947 - They buy the first machine in Denmark for plastic injection and begin to make toys of this material.
1949 - His son Godtferd, who works with Ole in the company, establishes the bases of “pieces of automatic union” that would be the precursors of the present pieces of LEGO.
Bricks & Books. A LEGO® library
The life of an AFOL is not only building LEGO: there are always some initiatives to expand our collection -and reduce the space we have for it- with other 'stars' of the LEGO universe. The recent launch of the spectacular catalogue 'LEGO collector' is a good reason to do a review of books related to LEGO. Most of them are in English, but some titles can also be found in Spanish to start a library to complete, in words, our passion.
