“In the LEGO Group we want to reach even more kids in new markets to give them the unique LEGO experience, and most of them will get that experience in a digital realm before they build with physical bricks. These kids may not know any adults who can teach them how to build with LEGO bricks, so it is imperative that our digital building experience is good enough to carry that responsibility.”
