Lego was founded 84 years ago in Denmark by Ole Kirk Christiansen. Christiansen, a carpenter by trade, had lost his job in the depression and started making wooden toys. His wife died in 1932 and Ole was left to raise 4 boys on his own. He made a wooden duck for them out of leftover materials in his wood shop. His boys loved them so he began mass producing them. It wasn't until after a fire in 1942, The Lego Group began experimenting with plastic toys. By 1949, Lego had over 200 plastic and wooden toys in production. Christiansen came up with LEGO from the Danish words leg godt meaning "play well". The word "lego" also means "I put together" in Latin and "I connect" or "I tie" in Italian. In early 2015, The Lego Group surpassed Mattel as the highest grossing toy company in the world.
