LEGO is a timeless classic that has been around for generations. But what is the history behind this beloved building toy? To answer that question, let’s take a look at the complete timeline of LEGO’s history from its inception to its current status as one of the most popular toys in the world.

LEGO History Timeline

1932 – 1949 The Early Years

The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen. He started off by producing wooden toys and games but eventually moved on to producing plastic toys when he realized there was a greater market for them.

In 1947, he officially changed the company name to LEGO after two of his sons suggested it – an abbreviation of two Danish words meaning “play well”. The first plastic brick prototype was created in 1949, and it quickly became a hit with both children and adults alike.

1950 – 1978 Expansion & Innovation

LEGO began rapidly expanding in the 1950s with new factories opening up all over Europe. By 1955, they had developed their iconic interlocking brick design which revolutionized both toy-building and construction playtime forever!

As time went on, they continued to innovate by introducing more complex sets with intricate designs and models such as castles, boats, ships, and more. They also released their first minifigures in 1978 which allowed kids to really use their imaginations when playing with LEGO blocks.

1979 – Present Day Global Presence

By 1979, LEGO had become a global phenomenon with products sold all over the world. They continued to produce new sets with increasingly advanced pieces and models every year – from space shuttles to pirate ships to haunted houses – as well as launching video games based on their popular themes like Star Wars or Harry Potter.

Today, LEGO continues to be one of the most beloved toys on the planet and its trademark interlocking bricks have become a symbol of childhood fun throughout much of the world!


LEGO is one of those timeless classics that has been around since 1932 and will continue to be loved by children (and adults!) for many years to come. Its rich history is full of innovation and growth – from simple wooden toys to intricate plastic blocks that can build anything your imagination can think up!

Whether you’re looking for something fun for your kids or just want something nostalgic for yourself, LEGO has something for everyone – no matter how old you are! Thanks to its wide range of products and creative ideas, it’s easy to see why this building toy has remained so popular over time!

Written by Matthew Mitchell
Hey, I am Matthew Mitchell and I am an AFOL from the UK. I have been fascinated by LEGO since I was a child. My two children are in love with LEGO and it's because of them that my interest in LEGO continued to grow, this is how I fell in to the rabbit hole of LEGO MOCs. 

With every new LEGO MOC I saw I became just a bit more addicted to the endless possibilities that LEGO offers. This led me to creating Belle-Ve Bricks, a platform where talented LEGO designers can share their work with the world.
