January 28, 1958

The Lego company patents...
The Lego company patents the design of its Lego bricks, still compatible with bricks produced today. In 1958, the modern brick design was developed but it took another five years to find the right material for it, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) polymer. The modern Lego brick was patented at 1:58 P.M. on 28 January 1958; bricks from that year are still compatible with current bricks.
