The Evolution of the LEGO LogoMay 16th, 2014
LEGO was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen who came up with the name by using the first two letters of each of the words “leg” and “hodt”, Danish for “play well”. Over the past 80+ years, LEGO has grown to become the world’s biggest toymaker, selling more than 19 billion bricks and other elements each year.
