True story: As a kid growing up in Denmark, young Martin had but one main passion in his life: Lego He built and slept on a Lego bed. The family garden became his very own Legoland, attracting visitors from near and far (including some Lego lawyers). At this point, aged 12, Lego invited Lindstrom to join their advisory board. Then, of all the children in the world, they gave him the first green brick in the collection!
