We all played with Lego as kids, here are three interesting facts:

The Lego Group began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen (7 April 1891 – 11 March 1958), a carpenter from Billund, Denmark.

The word “Lego” comes from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means “play well”.

The Lego Group’s motto is det bedste er ikke for godt which means roughly ‘only the best is the best’ (more literally ‘the best is never too good’).
