Lego began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks in 1949, In 1978, Lego produced the first minifigures, which have since become a staple in most sets.

Since the 1950s, the Lego Group has released thousands of sets with a variety of themes, including space, robots, pirates, trains, Vikings, castle, dinosaurs, undersea exploration, and wild west. Some of the classic themes that continue to the present day include Lego City (a line of sets depicting city life introduced in 1973) and Lego Technic (a line aimed at emulating complex machinery, introduced in 1977) In 1978, Lego produced the first minifigures, which have since become a staple in most sets.

Over the years, Lego has licensed themes from numerous cartoon and film franchises and even some from video games. These include BatmanIndiana JonesPirates of the CaribbeanHarry PotterStar Wars, and Minecraft. Although some of the licensed themes, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, had highly successful sales, Lego has expressed a desire to rely more upon their own characters and classic themes, and less upon licensed themes related to movie releases.
