Kids and kids-at-heart, listen up!
Explore the world of playful learning and building fun as LEGO celebrates its 90th anniversary this year with great finds at Toy Kingdom.
The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in Denmark, a Danish carpenter who aimed to inspire children to play well and think creatively (LEGO comes from Danish words “leg godt” meaning “play well.”)
In 1949, LEGO began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks, which were launched in its present format in 1958. These building blocks with interlocking tubes can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct objects, including vehicles, buildings, and working robots.
As of 2021, LEGO was the largest toy company in the world. Movies, games, competitions, and eight Legoland amusement parks have been built around the brand. As of July 2015, 600 billion LEGO parts had been produced.
LEGO collectibles at Toy Kingdom include the timeless and colorful LEGO Classic collection; the big LEGO Duplo sets for small hands; and the LEGO Creator sets with specialized bricks to create buildings, creatures, vehicles, and robots.
Younger kids can get their imagination going with LEGO Technic, which is designed for kids ages 8 to 16; and the adorable LEGO and Friends collections with detailed and realistic cute mini-doll figures to play with.
Let a wealth of creative ideas emerge through play with LEGO City, building sets that are based on city life like airports, trains, construction and civilian services; LEGO City Stuntz, with flywheel-powered motorbikes and cool vehicles; and the cool LEGO Ninjago with building kits and epic battle sets.
