A Brief History of the Brick King: LEGO
The very first LEGO was created in 1949 but underwent lots of "tweaks" in the original design. Even their name took a while to get locked down.
Ole Kirk Kristiansen, the founder of LEGO, originally dubbed these famous building blocks "Automatic Binding Bricks".
These original bricks were hollow and had limited clutching power. So while you could build great models, they would fall apart super easily.
It was the addition of the tubes they have today that gave them their super sticking together power.
So in 1958 they finally launched the LEGOs that we know and love just as much (and maybe even more) today.
LEGO actually celebrated it's official 60-Year Anniversary on January 28th. But in true tribute to their cult following, they're keeping the celebrating going even after their 60th date.
And if you're a dedicated LEGO fan, you can check out this pretty awesome LEGO History Timeline that they've added to their site as part of the recognition of their 60-year history.
