A LEGO Brickumentary

Synopsis: Of all the toys arising from the 20th century, there has never been one like Lego bricks. This film covers the history of this product of Denmark and how it arose from a toy company with an owning family that refused to let either hard times or multiple fiery disasters get them down. Furthermore, we also explore the various aficionados of the product like the collectors, hobbyists, artists, architects, engineers, scientists and doctors who have found uses for this classic construction toy that go far beyond children's playtime.

was his role in the development

of LEGO minifigures, or minifigs.

Hey, guys, still no arms, huh?

They obviously improved

Here, inside the design room,

the LEGO sets of tomorrow

are being dreamed up today by designers.

Everybody I meet says

that I have one

of the coolest jobs in the world.

It's fantastic to be able

to create with these bricks.

We have our desks full

of LEGO all the time.

It's like being a child

for the rest of my life.

For many the only limitation of building

But for the designers

at the LEGO company

The constraints becomes

the challenge, if you will.

Then it's those constraints

that are interesting

to find how do we make it work.

You have to think about

how kids play with LEGO,
