Brick4Ever, LEGO bricks in Meran
All of us played with famous LEGO bricks as a child. They are interlocking plastic bricks made by a Danish toy company invented by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a Danish carpenter who founded the company in 1916. In the beginning he made houses and furniture for farms, then he started making wooden toys called LEGO (the name comes from the Danish words legt godt that mean ‘play well’), it was only in 1949 that the plastic little bricks have been produced.
LEGO bricks are very loved by children as well as by adults, in fact, numerous artists have used them in their creations, statues and others constructions.
