It is a small small “Lego” world!

LEGO is today’s the world’s 4th largest toy manufacturer. Founded by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1932, the company has created an iconic toy that lasted many generations. The Lego toys have been passed from my dad to me and now to my son. Just like us, LEGO is in its 3rd generation. Today, it is managed by the grandson of the founder. The name ‘LEGO’ is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, meaning “play well”. In Latin, Lego means “I assemble”.
All thanks to my wife who sent me a text message 1,600miles away, asking me to go to this free exhibition. “Around the World in Lego Cities” attracted thousands of shoppers and shutter-bugs like me! 17 iconic buildings (built using 3 million lego bricks), 2000 characters and a heritage wall. This is one of the most successful events ever held at City Plaza at Tai Koo Shing.
