Inspirational Geek

Here at Inspirational Geek we are huge fans of Lego, as a couple of recent posts (here and here) show, but when I saw the headline that Lego was celebrating its 80th birthday I knew I was in for a treat.

And this animation which recounts the history of the Lego company, and eventual product that we all recognise today, doesn’t disappoint.

Narrated from the perspective of Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, Lego’s current owner, to track the journey and risks that Lego founder Ole Kirk Christiansen and his son Godtfred travelled and took.  Utterly brilliant!

The most iconic toy the world has ever seen, inspired to encourage creativity and imagination amongst children.  I for one can say that its still inspiring me well into adulthood.
