In the platform’s 10 years of existence, LEGO adult fans all over the world have submitted over 26,000 ideas for the new LEGO products and 23 LEGO Ideas sets were launched.
Julia Goldin, Chief Marketing Officer, said: “LEGO Ideas truly demonstrates the power of our fan community. During the past 10 years our fans have come up with the most incredible ideas, which have become beloved sets. These creations show us again and again that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you imagine. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed in making the LEGO Ideas platform what it is today. It is a fantastic, supportive and creative global community and I look forward to many more years of great ideas. We value the imagination and creativity that our adult fan community demonstrates every day. Through LEGO Ideas platform, fans have a unique opportunity to influence and co-create future LEGO products, and some of the latest LEGO Ideas products include the LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book, LEGO Ideas Voltron, LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy and many more.“
Daiva Staneikaite Naldal, Head of LEGO Ideas, said: “Over the years we’ve realized that our fan communities are extremely eager and energized to share their creations and try to make them become reality. I am very excited that in ten years we have managed to grow this global community to over 1 million members. LEGO Ideas carries a strong testimony that the collective opinion of this creative crowd can not only identify great products, but also yield authentic and engaging stories about people and their passions.”
This year, LEGO expanded the LEGO Ideas experience by launching cool contests where fans can submit creations and animations, and the best ones are shared and celebrated across LEGO social media channels.
LEGO Ideas is an open innovation community where LEGO fans (age +13) can submit their own ideas for new LEGO products, and vote for other members’ ideas. Members collect votes for their ideas online, and ideas that receive 10,000 votes have a chance of being selected to become part of the LEGO Group’s product portfolio. To date, 23 products have been released via the platform (LEGO Ideas + LEGO CUUSOO).
