The history of Lego spans nearly 100 years. Godtfred Kirk Christiansen was the managing director of The Lego Group from 1957 to 1979. Godtfred and his family before him and after were dedicated to always providing new and improved ideas for Lego. He was the inventor behind the following four patents.
Christiansen patented the toy building bricks on Oct. 24, 1961. These building blocks, strips, or similar building parts can be assembled without the use of additional elements provided with complementary holes, grooves, or protuberances, e.g. sidewalls
He filed a patent for toy building sets and building blocks on May 15, 1962. The principal object of the invention is to provide improved coupling means for clamping such building blocks together in any desired relative position thus providing for a vast variety of combinations of the blocks for making roof structures of many different kinds and shapes.
On Nov. 15, 1966 he patented his toy building structures. The frame construction according to the invention can readily be fitted in any location of-the building and in any desired dimension and shape. These several elements are especially suitable for windows.
The toy figure was patented on Dec. 18. 1979. Today these are called minifigures.
