TIA Honors The Brick
Posted by Purple_Dave on January 22, 2003 at 06:36 PM CST:
TheForce.Net has posted a press release from the Toy Industry Association which details the 100 most important toys of the 1900's. They stretched it out a few years, going from 1900-2001. Nestled between such iconic mainstays as Crayola Crayons, the Yo-Yo, Barbie, and Nerf balls, if you search through to 1953, you'll see an entry for the LEGOŽ System. Technically, the bricks were introduced in 1949 as "Automatic Binding Bricks", and were only renamed "LEGOŽ Bricks" in 1953, according to my copy of the 2002 LEGOŽ Brand Guide. You can read the entire press release here. Reading through that list, I was able to find 51 products that I owned or bought for someone else.
