Your Ultimate Guide to LEGO
Hear ye, hear ye! Mr Toys brings you everything you need to know about LEGO. LEGO is one of the most popular toys in the world and one with a rich history. There are thousands of LEGO playsets available, from LEGO Duplo sets all the way up to the largest, most intricate sets and collector items. The LEGO Group (based in Billund, Denmark) manufactures this line of plastic construction toys. LEGO sets are made up of colourful interlocking bricks, minifigures, gears, and various other pieces and can be connected and assembled to create objects such as vehicles, buildings, and robots. Any finished item can then be dissembled and the pieces re-used to make new, different objects.
When was LEGO introduced and where did it come from?
Since the first LEGO sets were manufactured in the 1940s, the toys have earned substantial worldwide popularity. LEGO has grown from a line of toys to an empire that includes games, movies, contests, and even theme parks based on this brightly-coloured “connectables.”
Hundreds of billions of LEGO parts have been produced since the toy’s inception. Nonetheless, they are nearly all completely perfect; the moulds used to produce them are accurate to within 0.002mm, meaning that only 18 out of every million elements produced fail to meet company standards.
Until 1947, LEGO blocks were made of wood. After this, they were made of cellulose acetate, which was eventually traded in for ABS plastic, which is less toxic and more heat resistant. Worldwide, retailers sell seven LEGO sets every second. This figure jumps to 28 sets per second during the holiday season. Numerous world records have been set with LEGO, including:
- The world’s tallest LEGO tower (465,000 bricks)
- The world’s tallest LEGO construction (2.9 million bricks)
- The world’s largest LEGO image (1.2 million bricks)
What does LEGO mean (what does the word stand for)?
The word “LEGO” itself comes from the Danish words “leg” and “godt,” which means “play well.” Oh, and by the way, the correct way to write “LEGO” is in all caps, and the plural form of LEGO is also LEGO – don’t forget that!
What ages is LEGO for?
There are LEGO sets for people of all ages, whether they’re first-time builders or seasoned pros. Each set is designed with a specific age group in mind. For instance, LEGO sets designed for younger children do not include certain elements such as axles that are more complicated to assemble. Sets for younger children also include more pre-assembled pieces to make building easier. They also include fewer pieces and more attention is paid to safety concerns, such as making sure pieces aren’t too small or pointy.
It’s not until around the 12+ age range that sets become larger and more advanced. There are LEGO sets complicated enough to satisfy even the most experienced adult builders. Check the age range listed on the package to be sure you are choosing an age-appropriate set.
Can you recycle LEGO bricks?
When you’re done with your LEGO, there are lots of options besides throwing them away. If the bricks are worn and unusable, they may be recycled in your community – check with your local recycling program to see if you can add them to your regular recycling. If the bricks are still in good shape, you may donate them to a local charity or day-care centre.
LEGO does their part to help the environment in a number of ways. For example, when pieces don’t meet quality standards, they are either ground down and used to make new pieces or they are used to help generate power in LEGO facilities. The company also donates surplus bricks to charities throughout the world.
How many LEGO bricks are produced each year?
Children all over the world spend billions of hours playing with LEGO each year – and that takes a lot of bricks. LEGO produces 19 billion LEGO pieces every year, and there are now more than 60 times as many LEGO bricks in existence as there are people.
Since 1949, LEGO has produced more than 400 billion bricks. In perspective, the LEGO bricks produced in just 1 year would circle the earth 5 times. There are enough minifigures today to circle the earth 4 times.
When was The LEGO Movie released?
It takes a special toy to have an entire movie based on it. The LEGO Movie was released in 2014 and was a smashing success, making nearly $500 million on a $60 million budget. The film features big-name actors such as Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Jonah Hill, Liam Neeson, and more.
What is The LEGO Movie about?
The story is about an everyday LEGO mini-figure who discovers that he is in a unique position as the only one who can help stop a tyrant from gluing together the pieces of the LEGO worlds to fit his idea of perfection.
Were real LEGO used in The LEGO Movie?
No real LEGO bricks were used. The movie is entirely made of digitally rendered bricks – several million of them. The producers used a free software called LEGO Digital Designer. However, all those things you see in the movie represent LEGO pieces that actually exist, and every structure is possible to re-create – should you feel inclined to do so.
Here are some fun facts about The LEGO Movie:
- The word “LEGO” is never spoken during the movie – not once.
- The reason Benny the Spaceman’s helmet was cracked in a certain place was because that LEGO product from the 1980s was prone to cracking in that exact spot.
Will there be more LEGO movies?
The film has spawned many spin-offs: The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie among many others. More are in the works. Of course, don’t forget the LEGO Movie 2, which was shown in theatres in 2019.
LEGO merchandise based on the movies has become quite popular and includes pieces such as The LEGO Batman Movie minifigures and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Spinjitzu Training building sets.
When was the first Star Wars LEGO set made?
Not surprisingly, the first licensed themed LEGO set was a Star Wars set. It was released in 1999 and included the first LEGO X-Wing.
What is the largest Star Wars LEGO set ever?
The largest LEGO set is also a Star Wars-themed set: The Millennium Falcon with over 7,500 pieces – which goes for a whopping nearly $1,300. There are now hundreds of LEGO Star Wars sets available such as LEGO Star Wars First Order Heavy Assault Wars, LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation, and LEGO Star Wars Troopers. There are also numerous LEGO Star Wars toys available besides traditional LEGO playsets, including minifigure clocks, LEGO Brickheadz Sets, and more.

What is LEGO Duplo?
While many of the LEGO vehicles are for big kids (and kids at heart), LEGO Duplo caters to the other end of the spectrum. LEGO Duplo bricks are larger than regular LEGO bricks – twice the size, to be exact. They were made that way so the tiniest hands can easily grasp and manipulate them, and so they’re less likely to be swallowed by young children. The LEGO Duplo series was launched in 1969 and now includes many sets featuring houses, cars, trains, and figures. Some favourites include:

What are LEGO Minifigures?
Since the first minifigure was created in the 1970s, there have been enough minifigures made to fill 170 standard-size swimming pools. Worldwide, an astonishing 12 minifigures are produced every second. Minifigures give LEGO sets life and personality that add to the imaginative possibilities. Want to know more?
When was the first LEGO minifigure created?
It was the year 1978. The first minifigure was a smiling police officer included in LEGO Set 600 Police Car. The set was small and simple – the minifigure could not even sit inside the vehicle – but the set is a classic today nonetheless.
Check out these LEGO minifigure fun facts:
- Without a hair piece or hat, a minifigure is exactly 4 LEGO bricks tall.
- Female minifigures have 2 standard legs just like male minifigures – but it took many concept stages to reach this decision.
- Minifigures are yellow to represent all ethnicities and races best.
- Ever wondered why minifigures have those holes in their heads? It’s to prevent choking should they be swallowed by young children.
- Some LEGO employees carry minifigures printed with their names in place of traditional business cards.
- In 2007, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, LEGO produced 10,000 gold chrome C-3PO minifigures and two 14-carat gold ones.
- To commemorate the 10th series of minifigures, LEGO once packaged 5,000 Mr. Gold minifigures in random cases for consumers to find.
Many people choose LEGO sets mainly for the minifigures they contain. Minifigures are important to players and collectors alike. That’s not surprising considering that, with 4 billion produced over the years, minifigures are the largest population on Earth.

What is the LEGO Batman Movie about?
Batman is another favourite theme when it comes to fun LEGO sets. Its popularity grew by leaps and bounds in 2017 with the release of The LEGO Batman Movie.
The computer-animated movie is based on the LEGO Batman line of toys and the first spin-off of The LEGO Movie. In the film, Batman bravely attempts to overcome his biggest fear to thwart the Joker’s latest evil plan.
The LEGO Batman Movie is rated PG for some action and “rude humour,” but overall, it’s a very kid-friendly flick. The animated film brought in $312 million worldwide and received praise from critics who loved its musical score, vocal performances, and animation. Some fun facts include:
- It contains the largest LEGO sets ever. In fact, if you re-created the sets using real LEGO bricks, the Batcave would measure about 8 km from end to end, and Gotham City would take up more than six football fields.
- Everything in the movie works just like it would in real life. Just like in The LEGO Movie, the producers used only products that exist and only had them connect and move in the ways they really can.
- Although Voldemort makes an appearance – and Ralph Fiennes, the actor, known for playing Voldemort in the Harry Potter films, is in the movie too – Fiennes does not voice Voldemort in the LEGO Batman Movie. The part is voiced instead by Eddie Izzard.
What are some fun LEGO sets from the LEGO Batman Movie?

Formerly known as LEGO Cuusoo, LEGO Ideas is a program that gives fans just like you a chance to come up with your own idea for the next LEGO set. You can submit your idea or give feedback on the ideas of others. To enter an idea, create your model and take some great photos of it. Then, write up a description and submit. If you gather 10,000 supporters, your project will qualify for review.
If your idea enters the review phase, a board of marketing reps and set designers will evaluate your project according to specific criteria, giving your concept an excellent chance of becoming a real LEGO set. Here’s the best part: if your idea becomes an actual product sold by LEGO, you’ll be recognised as the creator of the product and earn a royalty on sales. That’s right – you’ll get paid for playing with toys.
For examples of LEGO Ideas products, check out the Women of NASA and Adventure Time sets. The next Idea that becomes a real playset could be yours.
What are LEGOLAND Amusement Parks?
LEGO is so much fun and so immensely popular that there are actual LEGO-themed amusement parks. The LEGOLAND theme parks are a family-friendly chain of amusement parks owned by The LEGO Group and Merlin Entertainments (a British theme park company).
The LEGOLAND Billund Resort in Denmark was the first to open in 1968. Others followed in the 1990s with parks in Japan, Germany, the United States, Malaysia, and the United Arab Emirates. More LEGOLAND Amusement Parks are in the works.
The parks attract families with younger children primarily; although there are roller coasters, there is a bigger focus on rides suitable for little ones. There’s a LEGO Miniland in each park, a model village that includes LEGO replicas of landmarks from around the world – all constructed from real LEGO bricks, of course. LEGOLAND parks are designed with education in mind, incorporating elements such as interactive water features, musical instruments, Duplo Gardens for small children, and LEGO Mindstorms centres for learning while having lots of fun.
The rides in the LEGOLAND parks are all LEGO-themed, and many are even designed to look like they’re made out of real LEGO bricks. In LEGOLAND California alone, there are over 30,000 LEGO models located throughout the park.
With an enormous range of playsets and accessories for people of all ages, LEGO is one of the greatest toys of our lifetime. Whether your goal is to foster your child’s imagination and practical skills or indulge your inner child, you can find the perfect LEGO set at Mr Toys Toyworld.
