Lego the largest tire manufacturer

As a kid, I was fascinated with Legos. My brother and I built everything imaginable with our tub o’ Legos. Now that I have three boys, they’ve inherited the love of building with those multi-colored bricks.

Now comes the history of Legos..

To me one of the most interesting parts was the following quote:
“Over time the wheel would become one of the most ubiquitous of all Lego elements. In fact, by the late 1990’s Lego was producing more than 300 million tires a year, making them the largest tire manufacturer in the world.”
