The LEGO Duck in Billund

The LEGO Duck in Billund

The Lego Group began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, who began making wooden toys in 1932. In 1934, his company came to be called “Lego”, derived from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means “play well”.

The LEGO Duck is a Wooden Toys set released in 1935. It contains a wooden model of a duck, and was one of the first toys ever made by LEGO. It is also arguably the most popular of the wooden toys ever produced by LEGO. It features rolling wheels and a string with a knob so it can be pulled along.

Unlike modern LEGO sets, this model only consists of one piece, being made completely of wood. The colours of the duck are an orange mouth, black head, tail, and wings, and a red body. The duck sits on a black piece which stands on four red wheels.
