si llo la se montar lego
And these bricks still function with modern sets. Now that's value.
happy bday lego please build a lego Great Wall of China.
Here's to 55 more years of agony of accidently stepping on a lego brick
So, are them gold pieces going be available at $15 for a large bucket of 'em?
Happy Birthday and thank you for a WONDERFUL childhood !!!
If I had a buck for every minute spent playing with Lego's as a kid, I'd be sitting on a beach somewhere sippin' a drink with an umbrella in it...while everybody else works.  
You should have added a foot to the diagram, hovering over the block prototype.
Glad fødelsdag

Eller hur ni nu säger i Danmark.. :-)
I don't know anyone who doesn't know that iconic brick shape...
+Juan Carlos Meza So true. Especially when you need this ONE BRICK and you used the only one you had (of that specific brick) up already..............
I'm a bit shocked to have just realized that I am older than Lego bricks! <LOL>
Hope you have a happy 55th B-Day!
Happy birthday! I remember those first bricks, but really I thought it was 56 years ago!
Happy birthday :D still playing with lego at 41 :D
Nick S
I remember the pain of stepping on those things -_-
Happy bday. Hands down one of my favorite things from childhood. Mine never looked like the box though :) 
55 years ago? Lego's killed my wife. You just supplied the date. Now all I need is the creator's name so I can travel back in time and execute my plan.  
My baby beige was playing with these yesterday :-)
  Go Lego!   I hope i'll be around when you're  100!
Got to love the Legos (until you step on them)

... And I've loved them for 42 of those years! Happy Birthday!
I've been a Lego Man for 45 of those years and still have my mid-1960's Legos somewhere in the archives.
Always enjoyed getting to use my imagination and creativity with those legos. Thanks for starting something that helped kids use their imagination. :)
Such a simple and cool concept - interlocking toy blocks - yet Lego is the toy that rules them all.  Just goes to show that sometimes the most powerful ideas are the simplest ones.  Happy birthday Lego!!
Best of all the Toys...I'm wishing to have new ones for my little kids it is a brain developer.
+Zack Vieira ??? not sure if others are as confused as I am about your post but it is as confusing as a mo**erfu**er.
one brick to rule 'em all! congratulations!
Thanks for making my childhood (so far) that much better! 
Perfect toy, the day that you're too old to appreciate Legos is the day that it's not worth living anymore.
I love legos. keep going lego company
How many people steped on it
I loved them and outgrew them, my little sister loved them and outgrew them, and now my son loved them and outgrew them. Man, do I feel old. What a great product.  
Congrats and hoping for many more years !!!!!
Until the end of time, LEGO will rule the toy industry. Many thanks and salutations to the LEGO Company and its assets from West Janaro!
Why do Americans say "Legos" ? No one else in the whole world seems to put an "s" on the end, I have never seen anything from Lego with an "s" on the end. What is the source of this "s" in the USA?
+Keith Laws I have not the slightest clue. Maybe too many Americans lazily refer to LEGO bricks as "LEGOs"...
+Keith Laws  It's just habit, like we call all tissues "Kleenex" and all adhesive bandages "bandaids". 
Its a genericized name if you ask me. So much so, that it has its own plural form.For 22 years I have and will continue to collect and enjoy the magical little bricks i call LEGOS. 

G+ For L E G O S
I love legos I like to say I have around 300,000 or more bricks
OMG legos! I remember when they would get stuck together and I'd have bite them apart...I think there is still a lego in my stomach because it never came out.
youre acting like you own the company
Happy Birthday! I still have the original Lego men, who didn't have movable arms and legs :)
+Keith Laws we Americans will Americanize the poop out of poop if you give us the chance.
+Jordan Keyes correct.  Legos refers to the blocks, not the company. 

Do kids in other countries really say "I made the car out of LEGO" instead of "I made the car out of Legos?".  Do parents utter the phase "Simon, get your LEGO out of the living room before your Aunt Matilda trips on it, falls, and dies of a skull fracture"?
Having grown up from a LEGO playing kid to a Mindstorms and Technic playing AFOL I wish you a happy birthday and hope for more things to come.
And 55 years of childhood wonders.
LEGO, you need to do Doctor Who! I would buy all the sets :D
Oh Christian your company is so big now.
My favourite toy as a kid, and well...... still actually.
It's not the LEGO Group's birthday today. It's the Original LEGO Brick's Birthday.
Hooray for Legos, one of the best toys ever made!
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you...

Thank you, LEGO, for making my childhood as awesome as it was!! :D
Truly, though you guys made and are making my childhood! My favourite LEGO themes to date are Bionicle and Star Wars. Oh yeah
Happy Birthday lil fella, thanks for the good times.
Destroying peoples' feet for 55 years and counting
Started with Lego, then Lego Technic and Mindstorms, fast forward 15 years and I got my masters degree in engineering building race cars :D Thanks LEGO!
the lego has come so far... i mean it even has an amusement park! a whole major industry off of a tiny little red one inch building block. AMAZING
+Steve Sether Erm.... yes? Because "Lego" is the plural, the singular and the brand. "I've got one lego brick", "I've got two lego bricks", "I built a car out of lego", "Gee, Lego sure are old"?
Not yet a senior citizen, at just 55 yrs young!
+Samuel Hart I ask because usage defines language, not authority or logical rules. 

In the states the usage is "Legos", not "LEGO" to refer to the blocks. 
My mom shares her birthday with Neil Diamond. What do I get? The LEGO brick.
Phil B
I had the underwater aqua base with a shark sub. It was pretty cool.

What did everyone else have?
building the future one lego at a time.
Thats not humble! Have you ever stepped on a LEGO brick.
55 years of imagination and fun. Thanks for the great memories Lego.
Happy birthday Lego :)
I love Legos... Happy Birthday!!
Aaron Y
wow looks like figure 14 is intense and OVER 9000 in awesome points
Personally, I love the brickarms that go to the little lego figures. I have over 200 weapons from both the play sets and brickarms.
Thanks to Lego, I grew up to be an engineer... Seriously, all i did as a kid was building new "machines" from Lego technic kits! 
I had a beautiful childhood thanks to LEGO and its bricks of different sizes, shapes and colors. Best toy ever! Thank God for LEGO!
I have many scars from stepping on the pieces as a kid. Great painful memories, Thank you Lego!
are family loves lego . HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEGO!!!
Thats what lego brick looked like! Wow they have totally changed!
CK Man
Keep on bricking!
+Steve Sether totally agree that usage defines language, just curious why one country adds and s and no one else does.
+Don sears You have scars? From LEGO?! What is wrong with the skin on your feet? Are you honestly saying that input pressure of <= 180N on an area of 1cm^2  by a piece of LEGO caused a puncture wound?
Happy birthday to a great and educationally valuable toy!
Nick B
and 55 years of foot bruises 
Great keep making good sets with it!
I didn't play with Legos that much as a kid (at least I don't remember playing with them that much) but my kids sure do love them.  The best thing that Lego ever did was come out with the different kits (although I still think they cost too much).
nice ... its has no generation those toys ...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!XP
Happy Birthday you awesome childhood toy. Now only if you could send me some old Ice Planet LEGOs for my birthday.
LEGO is awesome. I once made a football stadium out of lego!

Happy Christmas. .!

Thanks for my civil engineering skills Lego! Keep being awesome for the new generations.
Lego is a pretty good toy to influence the creativity,continues with this great ideas,Lego is 10!!!
DO NOT refer to them as toys ! Refer to them as ingenious and revolutionary contraptions that have forever changed the world.
Lego you were so awesome until 2008 ish when you jacked up the prices!
It was the exchange rate that jacked up the prices..
ok +Navid Mamoon ,im not insulting Lego,i will don't call it toy,i will call it of supreme physic in form of block that revoluted the world forever
Happy Birthday..🎁🎊🎉
when i click on explore and it tells me that lego block are 55 years old it makes me wonder if the people working a google know the true meaning of EXPLORE.

But all else aside i remember when i was hella young and got a kick out of building lego's so Happy Bday.
I had hand-me-down logos, they have now passed down through 2 more generations. What other toys last that long and stay fun & relevant!
greg s

I applaud how simple yet entertaining Legos have been for many children's lives.
i don't believe it. YAY! Lego's are like the best ever, and they have been keeping people happy for 55 years! Cool.
We are thinking of visiting legoland in San Diego in son can't wait!
I'm an Architect. Thank you Legos
That patent hopefully expires soon.

LEGO's have my adoration. And my son Jacob, almost 4yr's old, just had a LEGO Christmas... Here's to many more years, LEGO!!!
I love Legos!! They take up like one fourth of my room.
The very first Lego instructions...
Congratulations and happy birthday!

"55 years old?OMG I didn't know Legos could live that long" typical (facepalm) comment.
Happy birthday... i'm still attached to it...
Happy birthday. And thank you for all the good times. Keep going strong
The greatest toy ever invented!
That's my childhood right there :)

Have a good one LEGO!
Remember early Lego Bricks. Sold them working in a Toy shop as a Junior after leaving school at 15 in 1961, think thats when they came to UK. Started me on my 50 year plus career in retail, still working a little having been in my own buisness for over 30 years.
Thanks for the memories
Wow, I've only been building Legos for 14 years now, ever since I was little.  It's amazing to be reminded how much history these little blocks have. 
...and thankfully with no retirement in sight!    Although a Cake Brick would be mighty nice...
Ryan Li
Happy Birthday!
Joyeux anniversaire. J'avais 5 ans lors de sa naissance et je suis toujours un fan.
My hope today is that no one steps on one!
Yay, LEGO!  My son just lives for this! LOL...I may need to build him a whole other room JUST for all of his LEGOs
I like you.  When can your son and I get in contact with one another? lol lol, well let's see, he's in school until 4PM, play time is usually from anytime between then is good :)
Happy Birthday Lego Bricks :) I'd not normally post here but... Just told my 9 year old son that it was someone's birthday and could he guess... I then gave him the clue of 55 years old to which he promptly replied with a winning smile "mummy". She's 32 and not best pleased with him ;) 
I'm 55 yo, and LEGO was my first and favourite toy. Happy BD!
Many Returns of the Day
