On this day in 1932 Ole Kirk Christiansen, a Danish Carpenter, founded LEGO in the small village of Billund. We would like to thank all of the employees of the LEGO Group and the Christiansen family for creating the toys that we love. Congratulations on 75 years in business!

“I feel an immense sense of pleasure and pride when I meet children and adults who enjoy our products. Throughout its 75-year history the LEGO Group has been through difficult and good times – fortunately much more good than difficult! This has been possible only because we have been blessed with – and still have – an incredibly committed team of employees. They have helped to keep alive the fundamental principles on which my grandfather set up the company. So I’m confident that we can look forward to the next 75 years,” says Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen.
