Lego is Celebrating the Brick’s 60th Anniversary With 6 New Sets Celebrating Creativity

Lego was born in the wooden toy workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932, but it wasn’t until 1958 that the plastic Lego brick we know and love today came to be. Those little studded building blocks became what might be the perfect toy — not only were kids getting playsets, they were getting bunches of bricks to create anything they could imagine!

Today, Lego is rolling thanks to tons of pop culture licensing deals, but the creativity at the heart of the company is still alive and well. That’s what the company wants to celebrate this month, as the brick officially turns 60 on January 28. They’re releasing five sets as part of a Building Bigger Thinking collection, which will get a special edition run for the anniversary — for collectors, there’s a printed 60th anniversary tile in these boxes you’re definitely going to want. On top of that, they’ve got a Walmart-exclusive set — a big old box of bricks that comes with a history booklet about the company. It’s all great for kids and longtime Lego fans alike! Here’s what you can expect.
