In principle, LEGO has no age restrictions, but also specifically addresses adults with special LEGO sets. The colorful clamping blocks were invented in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. Since then, the Danish company has been constantly on the lookout for inspiring ideas. Anyone who played with LEGO as a child is often still a fan today. The memories of self-built houses, cars, or spaceships are too good. The colorful stones that spread so much joy have lost none of their fascinations for many adults today.
