372 BILLIIIIIION LEGO BLOCKS AND COUNTING
Legos... undoubtedly the coolest and most inventive toy on the planet. They were invented by a Danish company and called Lego after the Danish words "Leg Godt" which translates to "Play Well". Ironically when they named them Legos they didn't realize that it Lego also means "I Put Together" in Latin. Last year Lego produced 19 BILLION lego blocks. Each year they seem to produce two lego blocks for each one that already exists. Currently there are 62 blocks per person on earth which is enough for everyone to build their own own little Lego house. Or we could all join forces and build 10 towers that stretch to the moon.
