LEGO: The Complicated History of the World’s Most Wholesome Toy (2022)

“LEGO history is almost as fascinating as the toys themselves – but the globally renowned, multi-billion-dollar company went through decades of setbacks in an attempt to preserve itself. Created by Ole Kirk Christiansen in Denmark in the 1930s, the toy company’s evolution has been shaped by tragedy in many ways. Though LEGO sets are now beloved and ubiquitous toys – and sometimes incredible rare collectibles – they began humbly, as the product of one Danish carpenter who originally crafted items like ironing boards and ladders for a living.”-Weird History
