This bite-size collection of LEGO castle build ideas will whisk you back to the days when knights were bold. Small in size but big in inspiration, this neat 32-page volume contains a collection of projects from the 'In Days of Old' chapter of The LEGO® Ideas Book. These ideas will do more than teach building skills; they will unlock your imagination and get you dreaming up dozens of ideas of your own. First build your majestic castle. Then create a drawbridge that really lifts and a portcullis that really lowers. Build a giant dragon for your minifigure knights to fight - maybe using a brick-built cannon. How about some sneaky traps for your enemies, and a brick-busting battering ram? There's all this and lots more inside this book, so dip in - and don't forget, there are four other exciting books in this series, too. ©2020 The LEGO Group

The story of these beloved bricks and the people who built an empire with them. From its inception in the early 1930s right up until today, the LEGO Group’s history is as colorful as the toys it makes. Few other playthings share the LEGO brand’s creative spirit, educational benefits, resilience, quality, and universal appeal. This history charts the birth of the LEGO Group from the workshop of a Danish carpenter and its steady growth as a small, family-run toy manufacturer to its current position as a market-leading, award-winning brand. The company’s growing catalogue of products—including the earliest wooden toys, plastic bricks, play themes and other building systems such as DUPLO, Technic, and MINDSTORMS—are chronicled in detail, alongside the manufacturing process, LEGOLAND parks, licensed toys, and computer games. Learn all about how LEGO pulled itself out of an economic crisis and embraced technology to make building blocks relevant to twenty-first century children, and discover the vibrant fan community of kids and adults whose conventions, websites, and artwork keep the LEGO spirit alive. Building a History will have you reminiscing about old Classic Space sets, rummaging through the attic for forgotten minifigure friends, and playing with whatever LEGO bricks you can get your hands on (even if it means sharing with your kids).
