The Lego Story
A scene from The Lego Story

Legos are more than just plastic bricks. They’re an institution of plastic bricks that reek of history and course through the veins of not just little kids, but plenty of adults who play with them with as much vigor and imagination as they did in their childhoods.

Lego turns 80 this year and has released a 17-minute animated short film about the company’s history and founder Ole Kirk Christiansen and his son Godtfred.

Fun fact: “Lego” comes from the Danish word “leg godt,” which means “play well.”

This short film is a must-see for Lego geeks everywhere. And short film lovers. And Danes.
