In 1958, Lego starts to make special bricks. The bricks fit together perfectly. People can make many different things from the bricks. The bricks become famous.

Today, Lego is a big toy producer. Lego sells products in more than 130 countries.

In 2015, a group of people build a big tower from Lego bricks. The tower is 35 meters tall. People build the tower in Italy. They use 550,000 bricks. They build the tower in five days.

Difficult words: mean (to have a meaning), brick (a block), fit (to be the right size to go somewhere).
