As The LEGO Group celebrates its 80th Birthday, we take a look back at its history with this short animated film. Find out more here,


Here's some Friday Fun -- the animated story of LEGO! I wish more companies -- of any size -- would do something similar. 


I love LEGO and could still happily spend hours building things. Now I know the fascinating story behind it. Which makes me love those plastic bricks all the more.


This is a 15 minute video (minus the rolling credits at the end). It's a little long and it could have been told a bit better. I found the narration a bit slow and sing-songy. Sigh. So the execution could use some work.


But overlook that and it is still a great story!
