  • 10 Years of LEGO Ideas


    Jordan Paxton

    We can all remember a child who dreamed of working for the LEGO Group and building all day. What could possibly be better than being a LEGO designer? While some of these kids do fulfill their life long dream, others find their calling in other professional fields. This doesn't mean that these kids have lost their way as the joy of building is not limited to LEGO employees.

    10 years ago, everything changed and anyone could become a LEGO designer through, what is now called, LEGO Ideas. Before long, adults around the world had dumped out their LEGO bricks and began building what could possibly be the next LEGO set. Since then over 1,000,000 adults have participated in building and voting on what LEGO sets they would like to see next. While this has helped bring the dream of being a LEGO designer to fan designers, it has also helped reignite the imagination of adults around the world who discovered that building with LEGO bricks is not just for kids.  

    At LEGO offices around the world, we took a moment to celebrate our adult fans and the fan designers who have had the honor of successfully creating a project that achieved 10,000 votes and became an official LEGO set. This celebration was special because it was not focused around any achievement from the LEGO Group, but the achievements of our growing adult fan community.

    Up till now our fan designers have come from a variety of professional backgrounds including video game designers, a spacecraft engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, an aerospace engineer, the head of a national research laboratory, an editor at MIT, a PIXAR animator and director, an architect, and several software developers. So, if you have a great idea for the next LEGO set or perhaps you want to vote on what the next LEGO set should be, make sure you check out Ideas.LEGO.com and have your voice heard. Perhaps you will be the next fan designer!
