The LEGO Group

Based on the world-famous LEGO® brick and the philosophy of Learning-through-Play, the LEGO Group provides unique play experiences for children of all ages. 

LEGO bricks are part of the LEGO System in Play, which essentially means that the bricks can easily be combined in innumerable ways – and just as easily be dismantled. The combination of a structured system, logic and endless possibilities encourages the child to unlimited creativity. 

Through creative play, the LEGO Group aims to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow and nurture the skills to help future generations thrive and develop – skills such as creativity, problem solving, self-awareness and empathy – all necessary for children to build the world of tomorrow. 


The LEGO Group was founded by the Kirk Kristiansen family in 1932 and has ever since then been headquartered in Billund, Denmark. Production facilities are located in Denmark, the Czech Republic, Hungary, China and Mexico, and the company has main offices in Enfield, USA, London, UK, Shanghai, China, and Singapore.  


The LEGO Group is owned 75 % by KIRKBI A/S, and the remaining 25 % is owned by the LEGO Foundation through Koldingvej 2, Billund A/S.
