Have you seen the new Lego movie?

Lego bricks can be assembled and connected in many ways, to construct such objects as vehicles, buildings, and even working robots. Anything constructed can then be taken apart again, and the pieces used to make other objects.Most people typically think of Lego as toys, however these multi-coloured building blocks are so much more than just playthings.

The Danish company has created over 560 billion parts since 1958. As children, Legos helped inspire the way in which we viewed the world. We could be an architect, city planner, or inventor.
