The use of LEGOs is an extraordinary thing, but it is shocking to see exactly how controversial a small toy can become. People of all ages have been found to enjoy this toy. Companies and organizations such as MIT and NASA have even found a use for them. The toy has become known as a child’s imagination tool and has not been exclusively used for adults.

To For example, as the ad says, it builds pride. You can’t teach a kid to have pride in their own work. It is something that happens just by the child learning themselves. This is important because having self-pride in your work is a life skill needed later on in life. Lego toys also open up a child’s imagination. Lego blocks all look the same when they are by themselves. When a child puts Lego blocks together it can become anything the child wants with imagination. A growing imagination is important to a child’s development as a person. When a parent understands this, it is hard for a parent to say no, this isn’t a good toy for my child. Also, what other toy could you substitute a Lego toy for that would teach the same lessons? This is the Logos part of this advertisement. Lego inadvertently makes a strong convincing case to buy their product, because of the self-conscious lessons it teaches to
Toys play an important role in childhood development as children learn roles and skills from playing. As a result, the toys children are subjected to have an affect on which roles, interests, and skills are learned and practiced. Through Lego’s product Duplo, I will demonstrate the influence particular gendered toys have on children and their performance of traditional gender roles. Gender, which is a learned performance, is something society has been taught from a very early age and toy advertising has played a significant role in reinforcing the performance. One tradition that is reinforced and naturalized by society is the ideology of a male dominated society, representing strong characteristics of heterosexuality and masculinity; also known as hegemonic masculinity. Therefore, using Ideological Criticism, I will analyze how through the branding and design of Lego’s Duplo toys, children have been constructed to do gender differently, ultimately perpetuating and reinforcing hegemonic masculinity.
The Lego Group puts much emphasis on their desire to help children learn and develop essential skills purely through
Legos are very fun as well. I love legos because you can be creative. Also they’re really fun too. And
We walked through the building toys section and I saw an amazing, 2005 piece Mega Blox™ Space Shuttle. It was by far the largest Lego set I saw in a box. It was supposed to stretch 3 feet long, and it could open up and have a telescope come out of it. it even had sound effects with different sayings like, "we're ready for takeoff." I had learned all this just by reading off the box at the store, and I knew I just had to have it.

CSR & Sustainability Case Study The LEGO Group CSR & Sustainability Case Study The LEGO Group Introduction The LEGO Group is a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. It was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, initially a small carpenter’s workshop (Lego Group, 2011).

One of their first patents passed in October 1961, three years after the initial filing date was the concept of the Toy Building Brick. “This invention relates to toy building elements and more particularly to toy building bricks or blocks adapted to be connected together by means of projections extending from the faces of the elements and arranged so as to engage protruding portions of an adjacent element when two such elements are assembled- Toy elements of this kind will be referred to generally as building bricks, and the principal object of the invention is to provide improved coupling means for clamping such building bricks together in any desired relative position thus providing for a vast variety' of combinations of the bricks for making toy structures of many different kinds and shapes.” The full patent will not be cited, but a main aspect of this paper is to find out exactly what DOES make sense for Lego, and this here is the perfect example of a positive play on IP and protecting an invention that was created by the company that could not simply be published nor kept a trade secret as it is their main product that they offer to
