It has been discovered that there is indeed a common theme surrounding both George Orwell’s novel 1984 and the LEGO movie. These pieces of literature serve to warn its readers/audience of the dangers of totalitarianism. Both the movie and the novel portray a “perfect” totalitarian society, where the government has complete and total power and control. When one looks beneath the surface of these “perfect” societies, it becomes evident that they are nothing of the sort. These “perfect” societies have removed individual expression and has caused everyone to be conditioned to think alike. The citizens are conditioned to meet the needs

There are many barriers to new organizations in the toy industry, making the threat of new entrants low. Lego and other big toy companies like Mattel benefit from economies of scale. An economy of scale is achieved by lower costs through large volume production (Textbook glossary). Economies of scale can occur in many departments within the organization including production, marketing, research and development, and finance. Some manufacturing of Lego products was shifted to Central Europe and Mexico in order to benefit from lower wages and to shorten product supply chains (p. 13 of case). The management of Lego additionally holds expertise on production, distribution and customer needs; which are absent in a new organization. To enter the toy sector a potential entrant needs to calculate the start of production at a level that will give a competitive position and production costs lower than the market.
LEGO has been in the toy industry since the Great Depression when Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen and his sons began making wooden toys (Bigus, 2011). Showing ingenuitive spirit, after the end of World War II, LEGO became the first company in Denmark to purchase a plastic injection molding machine, this was an expensive moving hinging on the risk that plastic toys were the toy of the future (Bigus, 2011). Soon after the purchase, LEGO expanded its business to include the first plastic LEGO bricks (Bigus, 2011). Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, one of Kristensen 's sons observed during the toy fair of 1954 a new way to market LEGO as a system of play so that the toys could be used separately or together to build large projects

“The name 'LEGO ' is an abbreviation of the two Danish words "leg godt", meaning "play well"” (LEGO History Timeline, 2012). That being said, have we ever really thought about what it means to “play well” or what LEGO’s can do for a child’s development?

Ryan McMaken defends Lego’s gender marketing issue as he focuses on Lego primarily as a profit-seeking business, as well as a business who has proven to know exactly what they are doing. McMaken concentrates on how Lego’s introduction of their Friends Line increased the worth of the female construction toy industry’s from 300 million to 900 million dollars. Evidently, these Lego sets may appear stereotypical or sexist to some, but there are what many people prefer to buy. He explains that Lego, in a competitive industry, must aim to please consumers, meet their needs, and gain a competitive advantage. To do so, it is crucial to offer products that other companies may not; products that will satisfy the needs of all children. Therefore, after extensivea research, and various
Lego adds their own flair to the ad by meticulously recreating the attack with actual legos and smoke. Since the Lego Group sprouted from Denmark, an assemblage of thorough research must have been implemented to perfect the magnitude of the incursion, proving through detailed work that they are indeed knowledgeable of the attack. Moreover, the Lego Group is known as an acclaimed company due to the success of their products that embolden creativity. Since Lego has already established itself as a credible source for children’s toys, parents will find themselves more willing to buy the products once they recognize the Lego logo.

Legos have the connotations of happiness and childhood; accordingly, the viewers will understand that the ad must be concerning more sanguine topics than what the photograph presents itself
