In 1949 he made his first LEGO brick, a simple idea that has been pleasing children all over the world for over 50 years. There are now 2400 different Lego brick shapes.

But Lego doesnt just make these very famous bricks, they also make 25 additional product lines that are sold in more than 130 countries, and in terms of sales Lego is the fifth largest toy manufacturer in the world.
