About The LEGO Group: The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. The company has passed from father to son and is now owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder. The name 'LEGO' is an abbreviation of the two Danish words "leg godt", meaning "play well". The LEGO® brick is our most important product. This is why we are proud to have been named twice – “Toy of the Century”. Our products have undergone extensive development over the years – but the foundation remains the traditional LEGO brick.

About Rory’s Story Cubes: The Rory’s Story Cubes was invented by Rory O’Connor. Rory’s Story Cubes are a remarkably simple and effective means for inspiring creative thinking and problem solving in all of us. Simply toss all the dice, examine each of the nine face-up images and let them guide your imagination through a story that begins with “Once upon a time…”.The secret is not to think too deeply. The story will reveal itself through the cubes and in so doing, will unleash creativity, freedom of expression and frequently, an insight to how to solve a seemingly intractable personal or business problem. Rory’s Story Cubes are exclusively distributed by Duck Learning in Singapore & Malaysia. Learn more about Rory’s Story Cubes at http://www.storycubes.com
