Its signature bricks offer unlimited building possibilities and let a wealth of creative ideas emerge through play for anyone. Behind the worldwide popularity of lego, there lies a set of meticulous calculation based on thorough knowledge in engineering.

Magazine B has always sought a way to feature LEGO in its focus on “brands.” People make many things through the act of stacking. From my own point of view, because such acts are so close to human instinct, toy bricks may have evolved with the history of humanity. In fact, LEGO was not the first to introduce toy bricks. What is remarkable about the toy brand, however, is that it has established its brand by transforming the simple idea of “stacking” into a set of standardized modules that allow easy assembly and disassembly and furthermore, acquiring technological and design patents. LEGO bricks, for certain, offer unlimited building possibilities – they help little ones develop their creativity through play while they make unique material for artistic creations or media that allow a wealth of creative ideas to emerge through architectural structures.

Looking back at the time when I was young, I can recall that I liked toys that I had to assemble very much, so much so that I remember I got my inspiration for my dreams while building plastic figurines. LEGO bricks seem to have taken the place of these figurines now. For some reason, I often find my stress relieved whenever I start stacking colorful LEGO blocks.
