1932 was the start of a revolution one that still to this day is building upon itself growing larger year after year. If you were a boy or possibly even a girl you may have found yourself buried in a pile of multi-colored blocks. Fondly named LEGOS these interlocking bricks have at one time or another graced a child’s hands or even in a few instances the mouth. Wait you are saying that a stupid colored brick is considered a toy? One major reason that LEGO has continued to stay popular in homes all over the world is imagination. Buildings, Movie sets, vehicles you name it you could make it with a few bricks and a vast imagination.
Jump to recent years LEGO has become more then just a multi-colored brick that kids are building with. LEGO has jumped into the video game market with such games as Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman and Lego Rock Band to name a few. Not to mention taking on huge franchises such as Harry Potter and bringing it to life in a Lego world. Not by changing the core product but evolving how the product is used and where creators have been able to keep interest spiked. Way too often something is swept under the rug as a new generation takes control. LEGO has been able to keep both the faithful fan base and the new comers alike happy and excited to see what is to come.
Where do you go with a franchise that has already built upon its success to become even greater. Well like all Lego buildings all you can do is expand out or continue to build up. Being able to tear apart what you have built to recreate something new is part of the overall experience and excitement. Your imagination is your power to change the landscape to create the world in which you want to play.
