A Lego leg, a life-size Lego house and 24 other impressive Lego creations (26 items)
Founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, the Lego company has been around for 82 years. Although many toys fall out of favor over time, Lego has grown in popularity and is now the world’s third-largest manufacturer of toys.
Much of the company's success comes from a motto that has hung on the walls of Lego factory since 1936: “Only the best is good enough.”
After many years of operation, what started out at a small carpenter's workshop has now pumped out hundreds of building sets, video games and, most recently, a movie created by Warner Brothers titled, "The LEGO Movie," released on Feb. 7, 2014.
The Lego brick, which has maintained the same design since 1958, has also inspired fans around the world to build their own creations.
From an amputee's Lego leg to a life-size Lego house — complete with running water — here are 26 interesting Lego iterations.

The construction involved hundreds of volunteers in and required more than 500,000 Lego bricks, resulting in a tower almost 105 feet tall, according to metro.co.uk.
At the time of its construction, the Lego tower was the largest in the world. Since then, a Lego tower in Delaware measuring 112 feet has outdone the Windsor version.
