On Play Day almost all LEGO employees from over the world take the day off work to simply play. We hold 10 major events at our factories and hubs, as well as many more events at offices globally. The aim of Play Day is to let LEGO employees experience the power of play through various play activities, and to equip them to create more playful moments in their everyday life, at work, at home and in their local communities.
