LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen by combining the Danish words Leg Got that means play well and later realized that the word LEGO in Latin translates to I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children around the world, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO City portrays the everyday life with realistic models. LEGO City gives the boys the possibility to role play and become the heroes of their City. They can become heroes in so many ways: extinguishing fires as a firefighter, arresting robbers as a police officer, or flying rescue helicopters to save lives. LEGO brings to the market a range of product lines such as, LEGO Atlantis, LEGO City , LEGO Creator, LEGO Duplo, LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Hero Factory, LEGO Power Miners, LEGO Star Wars , LEGO Technic, LEGO Toy Story, and LEGO World Racers.
