LEGO is one of the world’s most recognisable products, but how is it made?

Since production of the LEGO block in 1949, the design hasn’t changed and is available in 53 colours.

The blocks are made of a plastic granulate, which is melted and pressed in a moulding machine which creates the LEGO shape.

Automatic guided vehicles then collect and deliver the bricks to the warehouse, where they are sorted, weighed and then packed for delivery.
