Lego Facts

November 18th, 2009 No comments

I bought my son some Lego the other day. Accompanying the box came a brochure advertising other Lego sets but also including some fascinating facts.

… on average, every person owns 62 Lego bricks

… 36,000 Lego elements are produced every minute

I find this next one a bit hard to believe. World people poplulation is just under 7 billion.

… 4 billion Lego minifigures inhabit the world

and my favourite

… Lego produces more then 306 million tyres per year, which makes it the largest tyre manufacturer in the world
