Happy 50th Anniversary LEGO!

As kids’ toys go, I am a fan of LEGO.  Not only are the kits themselves creative, but they are also infinitely customizable for even more layers of imagination.  Their advertising is also typically pretty great.  For example, there’s the "Imagine" campaign:

20080128-Lego-Ship

20080128-Lego-Plane 

And one of my top ten all-time favorite Rapidsea-ready ads, the LEGO submarine periscope:

20080128-Lego-Periscope-Submarine-Imagine

Fantastic. 

Then you have a campaign like "Rebuild It":

20080128-Lego-Rebuild-It-New-York-WTC

20080128-Lego-Rebuild-It-Refugees

20080128-Lego-Rebuild-It-New-Orleans

Heavy, but spirited.

And today LEGO turns 50!  Congrats to them!!
