Qualche curiosità

The first moulding machine is bought in 1946 after Ole Kirk Christensen attended a demonstration of a plastic injection moulding machine at a fair in Copenhagen.

In 1949 the LEGO Group’s plastics department manufactures various kinds of toys. Among these are the company’s first plastic bricks, which are marketed under the name “Automatic Binding Bricks”.

On 28 January 1958 at 1:58 pm, the modern LEGO brick is born when a patent for the unique clutch power is secured.

In 1960 the second-generation owner, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen decided to put all eggs in one basket and purely focus on the LEGO brick.

A real-life moulding machine can be found in LEGO House where guests can see it up close. It is identical to the ones in other LEGO production sites but is custom made to only produce six bricks at the time and run at a slower pace.

In the 60s and 70s, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen initiated decommissioned moulds to be cast into the concrete foundations of new factories in Billund to prevent them from falling into wrong hands.

In the History Collection in LEGO House, you can also find decommissioned moulds hiding in the floor for visitors to see.

Causa pandemia lo scorso anno il primo set esclusivo 40501 – The Wooden Duck è stato venduto anche sul LEGO Shop. Lo avete comprato? Ad oggi la LEGO House è ancora chiusa, sarà disponibile online anche questo set?
