All ways lead to…

Well, following the saying they all lead to Rome, Italy.

While this may be true, you know that we do have a special place in our hearts. It is reserved for a certain toy.

We’ve made it a tradition to celebrate our passion for toys AND photography. At least once a year we’re meeting up for a toy photo safari. Should you not have heard of this before then please visit some articles about Stockholm, Hamburg, London, Edinburgh or Paris.

But if you are already happily waiting for where to book your tickets to next, wait no longer. Looking at where the brick was born, we decided that next year’s ways will lead us to a little kingdom that is Denmark.

We’re going to Denmark

To be precise we’ll be meeting up for our next toy photo safari in the city of Aarhus. This may not exactly be the cradle of the brick. (Though, it’s just an hour drive away from it.)

Visiting the RLFM days 2017. Excuse me, the what..?

When Boris and myself went to Billund, Denmark last week to attend the RLFM days  2017 (RLFM aka Recognized LEGO® Fan Media) as representatives of StuckInPlastic I was excited and nervous at the same time. Excited as it was my first visit to the domicile of LEGO System A/S – and nervous for the same reason.

From the schedule that had been sent to us in advance by AFOL Relations Manager Kim E. Thomson I already had an idea of what was going to happen:

On the first day we would meet the other participants and learn about their groups; we would meet the company´s CEO for a dialogue session and have a tour of the new LEGO house and a Q&A session with its director and designer, followed by a dinner.

Listening to the CEO

LEGO Inc.

As most of you know Me2 and Crew won the fantastic The LEGO Movie Scandinavian Master Builder Challenge organized by the great folks over at Warner Bros and LEGO and as part of winning this epic challenge, Me2 and Crew got invited to visit some awesomeness in LEGO land.

Signing in to visit the top secret production plant where LEGO is born.

And awesomeness it was.

The crew signed in to visit the top secret production plant and got a guided tour (#nopictures) into the nirvana of LEGO, Prod. KOM One, the Billund Production Plant.

A most amazing tour that just gave a fantastic insight in the clutch power and drive for quality which truly represents the company motto det bedste er ikke for god, or the best is just not good enough. A motto introduced by the founding father Ole Kirk Christansen a good 80 years ago and it still hold strong today.

The exclusive LEGO Ideas House …

Our guided VIP tour continued to the LEGO Idea House, giving us an exclusive insight in the history of the Company.
From the wooden ducklings and fire trucks over the plastic cars to the brick.
The brick which is the cornerstone of the LEGO world.
A brick which did not change fundamentals since its patent on January 28, 1958.

… giving fantastic insights in a long and rich history …

While our time was limited in the LEGO Idea House and we most probably could have spent a few more hours discussing the rich past of this fantastic company (yes, we are biased) I do feel confident we are contributing with our photography (or should I say legography) to the next chapter of the rich history of the LEGO Company, one picture at a time …
