Ding ding ding! There's a fire in town! The fire brigade drives to the scene from this detailed and realistic 1930s fire station. Designed to fit with other modular buildings like #10182 Cafi Corner and #10185 Green Grocer, the station is built with rare LEGO pieces and innovative construction techniques. It includes a 30s-style fire truck, four minifigures and a fire-dog, an opening station garage door and removable building roof for interior access, and two fully-furnished floors featuring fire-fighting tools, racks for the firemen's helmets, a fire-pole, a ping-pong table, a kitchen with fully-stocked fridge, a couch and bookshelf, and a roof with a water tower and bell. To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen by combining the Danish words Leg Got that means play well and later realized that the word LEGO in Latin translates to I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children around the world, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. LEGO innovation continues to this day with product lines like DUPLO that was created in 1969 for smaller hands and still thrives. Movie tie-ins, such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indiana Jones Adventures and LEGO SpongeBob are some of the most popular sets. The Sci-Fi LEGO Bionicle sets have a huge following but the number one selling LEGO set of all time is The LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System. Over 1 million of these sets were sold around the world. In 2009 LEGO introduces the next generation LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0! LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!
