LEGO Ninjago, Pirate Ship or Ferrari?
Posted on 28/02/22
LEGO a shortened Danish word 'leg godt', meaning play well is a company founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932, Billund, Denmark. Since then, there has been an amazing amount of LEGO creations. Which is your favourite? Ninjago, Pirate Ship or Ferrari?
How did LEGO bricks come about?
Believe it or not, Ole Kirk Christiansen was actually a carpenter and was originally making wooden toys to sell. At the end of World War II, many traditional materials used in the manufacture of products were not readily available, so he had to look for other cheap, plastic alternatives.
In 1947, the Lego company was the first toy manufacturer in Denmark to purchase a plastic injection moulding machine. This was quite a change and a challenge for him as he had been working with wood all his life. By 1949, LEGO was producing a plastic product called the Automatic Binding Brick. His son Godtfred succeeded him and vital to moving the company forward.
What are some of LEGO's biggest set ever created ?
Over the years, LEGO has created some rather impressive sets. Their top biggest sets are :
1) Art World Map - over 11,000 pieces!
2) Titanic - 9090 pieces
3) Colosseum -9036 pieces
4) UCS LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon- 7541 pieces
5) Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle - 6020 pieces

8) Camp Nou- FC Barcelona - 5509 pieces
9) Ultimate Collectors's LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon - 5197 pieces
10) Ninjago City - 4867 pieces
There are still many other creations worth mentioning besides the top 10 above. Amongst them are the Ferraris, the Pirate Ships, Chip & Dale, Road Runner, Woody & Bo Peep, Elsa, Buzz Lightyear, the Mandalorian and ... even the Spice Girls! Yes, it's not a typing error. There are actually lego Spice Girls :)
Lego Ninjago was introduced in 2011. It is the first theme to be based on ninja since the discontinuation of the Lego Ninja theme in 2000. Ninjago (previously known as Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu until 2019) is a computer-animated television series produced by The Lego Group.
Ninjago City set consist of over 4000 pieces and would probably cost me my month's mortgage! Be not disheartened if you love the exciting world of ninjas battling against evil but like me may not have the money to indulge. There are many other Ninjago products that are still plenty of fun and affordable. You can start with smaller sets and build it up slowly. The most important is your imagination!
LEGO Pirate Ship
The LEGO Pirates theme was introduced in 1989. LEGO Pirates is one of the first themes to appear since the launch of LEGOLAND Town, Castle, Space and FABULAND in the late 1970s.
The largest ship Lego Pirates ever released is the Imperial Flagship (2010) of the Imperial Guards faction, exceeding that of the 6286 Skull's Eye Schooner (1993).
Pirate Ship 31109 is a Creator set that was released on August 24, 2020 under the 3-in-1 subtheme. It features 3 models in 1 : A classic Pirate Ship, a rustic Pirates' Inn and a mysterious Skull Island. It consist of 1264 pieces..... oh the endless fun!
