As a mom of two boys, we are all about Legos. We play with every size Lego, watch Lego movies, and go to Legoland. It seems like Legos grew up with me. A lot of the block sets today are aimed at teenagers to adults with thousands of pieces per set. Lately, I find myself dreaming about building my own palaces and skyscrapers from the Lego Architecture sets. I have found 4 original Lego patents from 1958-1979. By now, most Lego patents have already expired, but you can still hang them on your wall as a homage to your childhood.
You can find almost any patent online from Google’s Patent Search but many early patents aren’t in good condition. I have spent time to edit and clean up these original patents so that they look like they did when they were originally filed. I’m guessing the scanners, years ago, weren’t that great because most of the patents were scanned and filed sideways with lots of marks. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about any of that. You can just print and hang these original works of art.
If you are interested in me doing patents more often, leave a comment below on what you would like to see.
