The World's Greatest Creation...
This... needs explaining.
About this creation
The World's Greatest Creation is the LEGOŽ Brick. With out the LEGOŽ Brick, there is no MOCpages. Every MOC is started from one LEGOŽ Brick. Every MOC finishes with one LEGOŽ Brick. LEGOŽ spans for several generations, reaches across continents, and bridges languages. The simple brick has been transformed into the most creative and vesatile construction tool on the planet, and, as days go by, even more ingenious uses are invented. Just think about it. From these...



Built on LDD.

... to this.


Picture source goes to Nathan Sawaya.

Do You Know?

... approximately 19 billion LEGOŽ elements are produced per year. 2.16 million are molded every hour, and 36,000 every minute?

... that there is enough LEGOŽ Bricks in the world for everyone to build a small house?

... or if we teamed up, a tower to the Moon?

... there are holes in some pieces a child will still breathe if swallowed?

... the word "lego" comes from the Danish word "LEg GOdt" which means "play well?"

... the word "lego" translated into Latin means "I put together?"

... seven LEGOŽ sets are sold each second?

... Since BIONILCE figures first appeared in 2001, more than 150 million have been born, more than the population of France and Britain together?

... laid end to end, the LEGOŽ Bricks sold in a YEAR would wrap around the Earth 5 times?

... any toy better than LEGOŽ?

Legal Issues

I must say these pictures aren't entirely mine. The LEGOŽ Brick Picture I cropped myself and changed the size. Nathan Sawaya's Sculpture a gave a source. So I believe I'm clear. Also I DID build something...
