Today's post isn't about a person, but a product - one we all know and love - Lego.
This past weekend marked the 80th birthday of the famous family toy enjoyed for generations.
Very much a family business, Lego was founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932. He built the company, with his bare hands, along with his son Godtfred, who became the company's second owner, and the designer of the important inter-locking brick system. The company is today run by Kjeld, Godtfred's son.
