With this list, I decided to venture beyond my digital marketing stat “comfort zone” and curate a list of stats and facts pertaining to a product that I have been interested in for well over thirty years: LEGO®.
Here are a few LEGO facts you may, or may not know about the world’s most beloved maker of building blocks….
As with all my other stat posts, this list will grow and be updated periodically. Be sure to subscribe to my updates if you want to know right away when this post is updated.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
