Lego celebrated its 80th birthday earlier this week, 10th August to be exact. Lego has seen great success over the years, and have also seen many variants and themed sets, none more so than the popular Star Wars sets. Ask anyone, from kids to adults, and most will have fond memories of having played with Lego at some point in their lives. But Lego has not only been a mere toy, and has proven a worthwhile educational means. Arguable one of the more popular toys in history, not many know the history behind Lego. As part of their 80th birthday celebrations, the toy company has released an 18-minute video clip to explain the early days of Lego, and its founder Ole Kirk Christiansen. Happy Birthday Lego!
