Brick Fest Live LEGO Fan Festival
It seems Legos have been around forever, but it all started in 1949 in Billund, Denmark by The Lego Group.
Legos are plastic construction toy blocks consisting of interlocking bricks with gears and figurines called mini figures.
The Lego Group began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen (1891–1958), a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, who began making wooden toys in 1932.
In 1934, his company came to be called "Lego", derived from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well".
