15 million LEGO components are made every year. Have you ever wondered how they are made? Business Week takes a look at the production process of how classic LEGO bricks are produced. LEGO has been named Toy of the Century twice and their popularity has been cemented ever since they were introduced back in 1958. Check out how they start from granulated acrylitrile butadine styrene, a type of shiny plastic and finished off as minted bricks.
