A boy and dad passion for action figures.

Isaac built this cool little ranch. It holds many cool things such as safes, horses and various traps!

The Lego Group got its start in 1932. Following a fire in founder Ole Kirk Christensen’s woodworking shop, he started making toys out of surplus lumber, ditching the carpentry gig and dedicating his time to a whole lineup of wooden piggy banks, cars, trucks, and houses. It wasn’t until 1947 that they even began producing the trademark interlocking plastic bricks, and sales were initially very disappointing.

The minifig didn’t debut until 1975. Over 4 billion minifigs have been produced to date. These are the little dudes with cupped hands, and they're expected to exceed the human population by 2019.

The name LEGO comes from the Danish phrase Leg Godt. This means “play well." Coincidentally, it also means “I put together” in Latin.
