Lego is considered one of the most played toys in the world. Founded on August 10th, 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, Lego is now headquartered in Billund, Denmark. Even now, Lego does not only produce toys, but they also have their own amusement parks spread around the world. The amusement park is then known as Legoland. In fact, the history of Lego is back to the early 20th century. At that time, people used wooden playthings to create any kind of thing. And now, Lego Group becomes the largest toy company in the world with sales each year of USD 2.1 billion.
Over those 100 years, Lego also has experienced so many changes. The changes come from the way the brands are managed till the way the brands are displayed. One particular change that can easily be seen is the logo. Away back, Lego has so many logos. Overall, Lego has 11 logo changes. And the most recent logo has caught the world's attention. In fact, there are so many people who are willing to pay only to use the font used on the logo. But, if you search for it on the internet, you will get a very similar font. It is called LegoThick. You can also use it for your personal use free of charge.
There are many people who are curious about what a Lego is. So, Lego is actually an abbreviation. It is from where the brands are founded. Lego comes from two Danis words. Those are ’leg’ and ‘godt’. In English, those words mean ‘play’ and ‘good’. So, Lego means play well. But actually, at the very early stage, the founder, Ole Kirk, also considered another name for the brand. It is called ‘Legio’. It is the implication of ‘Legion of Toys’. But then, he chose to use Lego. Later, Lego also has another meaning in Latin. It means ‘I assemble’ or ‘I put together’. It is the exact purpose of having toys.
For years, Lego has released some sets. Years after years, the sets become more and more popular. Thanks to the community especially the children who are willing to spend their entire income to buy Lego. As a result, there are some Lego sets that are considered as the rarest. H.C Andersen’s Clumsy Hans that is exclusively released in the 2015 edition is considered the rarest lego in the world. And if you magically happen to see this Lego, these almost-extinct Lego sets are sold for 7,3 thousand dollars. Meanwhile, the closest Lego sets contender is called TMNT Antonio’s Pizza-Roma that are exclusively released in 2012. It is sold at 4,2 thousand dollars.
