Three Interesting Facts About Legos and Their Production
Did you know that the number one children’s toy sets in the world are actually created by the Lego Factory? Legos have a massive global following and its pretty rare to find someone who has not heard of their brand. Due to the recent release of the new Star Wars movie the Star wars lego sets have become extremely popular among children and fans. Today I wanted to talk about some facts relating to Legos and Star wars lego sets and how they have become so darned popular. Let’s get started.
Did you know that Legos originally began producing and selling their products as dough? No, not the type that is edible either. Back in the beginning of the Lego company dough was produced that could be molded into shapes. It was not until the year of 1970 that Legos began making their brinks from plastic molds.
Did you know that the process of making Legos is so streamlined that only about five blocks out of one-million are thrown away for being defective? Pretty amazing considering the size of the product. Additionally, when you look inside the bottom of a Lego you will notice that each Lego brick has a number. Did you know that every number on a Lego break tells a story? The number on a Lego actually identifies the type of mold that was used during its production and which line it was placed in. Pretty cool, right?
How many of you hate assembling projects only to find that you have extra pieces? It’s pretty frustrating right? You’re not sure if you have an extra piece or if you actually missed something in the instructions. Well worry no more, Legos actually give you extra pieces in their Lego Sets on purpose, so don’t be fooled into thinking you misses something.
