Why is LEGO a classic must have toy?
LEGO is a timeless toy. With more than 70 years of construction excellence, the LEGO name is an abbreviation of the two Danish words leg godt, meaning “play well.” In terms of sales, it is the world’s sixth-largest manufacturer of toys.
It encourages exploration as well as creative and imaginative play in children as young as one-year-old starting with Duplo. Many adults still enjoy building LEGO creations with sets such as LEGO Technic and Architecture.
