Happy Birthday (Again), LEGO!
Some of you might remember that we had a Happy Birthday, LEGO post at GeekAlerts back in November, when the Danish company turned 75.
Today it’s 50 years ago since the modern LEGO brick was patented. Over 400 billion of these interlocking bricks have been made since then.
Neatorama has compiled a great 10 Neatest LEGO Facts and Links post to “commemorate the half century mark of the popular toy” and featured below is a selection of cool LEGO stuff that’s been covered here at GeekAlerts:
