The Lego brick is 50

I with a Lego box 1958, the Lego brick has been invented in its modern shape, patented on January 28 – and still compatible with those from today, they say (lacking such bricks, I couldn’t verify that myself…).

To celebrate this day, the Lego shop offers an exclusive town set, unfortunately with 23 pieces too much or 27 too few (that is, 1981), for “Ages: 12+”, so also for “children of the first hour”, if you will. :)

Even Google is doodling nicely:

So “play well”*, everybody! :mrgreen:

Addendum: A nice timeline and several curiosities and numbers at Gizmodo.

* as is well known, the name “Lego” originates from “leg godt”, Danish for “play well.

    vor der Playmobil und deutlich vor der Starwars-figurenphase bereicherte Lego meine Kindheit. Klasse Bild übrigens :)

    Playmobil war bei mir nur ganz kurz vertreten; ich glaub, in der Harald-Schmidt-Show hab ich insgesamt mehr davon gesehen als dermaleinst bei mir zuhause – Lego war einfach viel besser und vielseitiger. :)

    Das Lob zum Bild muss ich dann an meinen Vater weitergeben, der nach und nach tausende alte Dias und Fotos eingescannt hat…

    Hallo, hast ein wirklich nettes Bild ausgesucht (und es gäb’ ja noch so viele – Ostern, Geburtstag auch noch)! Frage: Was bedeutet “Gravatar?”

    Was den Gravatar betrifft: “Globally Recognized Avatar” – ich verweise da am besten auf die Wikipedia. :)
