  • The word LEGO comes from the Danish phrase “leg godt” which means “play well”. It is also loosely interpreted in Latin as “I put together”.
  • If all the LEGO blocks ever produced were evenly distributed to all the people in the world, each person would have 62 bricks.
  • About 18 bricks out of every million produced fail to meet the standard required.
