Lego celebrates 90th birthday with cake made out of Legos

It's on display at the Lego house in Billund, Denmark.

BILLUND, Denmark — Lego is going big to celebrate its 90th birthday Thursday.

It unveiled a massive birthday cake of Legos, made from a whopping 94,128 bricks and pieces.

This video shows all the work employees did to build the nine layer cake, one layer for each of the nine decades of Lego play.

It's on display at the Lego house in Billund, Denmark.

The company is also celebrating with its first world play day, with events around the world to encourage and help families and communities to play more.

Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen founded the company in 1932, and it's still family owned.

The Lego brick in its current form was first manufactured in 1958.

Ole's son helped develop it.

Lego, by the way, comes from the Danish phrase "Leg Godt," which means "play well."
