Lego Mind Map
Transcript of Lego Mind Map
Lego is a danish invention that was created by a carpenter, Ole Kirk Christiansen.
LEGO building bricks are hard plastic construction blocks, with studs on them so they stay tightly together. They come in many shapes and colours that are great to play with.
Lego is a trademark, but many other blocks use similar designs.
Various sized building blocks that are for all ages 3+ and come in packs that you can build with instructions. The word Lego means 'play well' in Danish.
Legos are interlocking blocks. They are a very popular kind of toy played with by children and adults, with Lego, you can build structures by joining building blocks that click together.
OLE KIRK CHRISTIANSEN
As the 10th son of his family, the danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen made wooden toys after he lost his job in the depression (1932). Soon Christiansen's wife died, leaving him with four sons. Later he was inspired to create wooden ducks for his sons. They loved the toys, so Christiansen decided to put wooden toys into mass production, using parts from his old business. Then, in 1942 a fire broke out in the factory, forcing them to rebuild, he finally resorted to making models of houses and motels he saw when he was a carpenter, but in 1947 he moved to using plastics. He died of a heart attack on March 11, 1958.

THE LEGO STORY!
LEGO Universe was shut down for good on the 30th January 2012 because there wasn't enough money flowing in from customers. 'Besides, the Mythrans (Creators) need a well-deserved holiday. This project had been underway for a year and a half. However, in 2014, two new Universes will be launched, one based on the 'Chima' Theme and another on all the minifigures. These two new MMOs will have been created by March/April.
THE GOLDEN MINIFIGURE
Mr. Gold is the rarest minifigure so far as he is the only one who hasn't been seen in all packs. There are only 5000 in the world although 66 Mr Gold(s) have found owners. Mr. Gold has been a fanatical race starter for LEGO collectors.

My Main Question
What might a new owner do to the company?
: Wow! LEGO is old, about 80 years.
: I wonder why his other three sons didn't help him.
Every company needs a fan base!
Lego has millions of fans, ranging from children, adults and even grandparents! There are so many that if you would look up 'lego fan groups', there are 64 groups - although there are definitely more than that - on Google! The biggest lego fan group is called LUGNET;
The international fan-created LEGO Users Group Network - where LEGO fanatics of all ages can find information, meet one another, and share ideas.
Mr. Silver! A parody of Mr.Gold is even rarer, with only 1000 made!
