LEGO toys are a popular line of plastic construction toys that consist of interlocking bricks, gears, minifigures and other accessories. The word "LEGO" is derived from the Danish words "leg godt," which mean "play well." The LEGO Group was founded in Denmark in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter who started making wooden toys. LEGO bricks are highly versatile and can be used to build anything a child's imagination can come up with. In addition to the classic brick sets, LEGO has also produced sets based on popular movies, TV shows, and video games, such as Star Wars, Frozen, Minecraft and more.
