Rumfart!

Stop giggling there at the back! Rumfart means ‘space exploration’ in Danish.

As some of our regular readers know, Wooof and I absolutely love space exploration. Today we look at Lego Space sets. Rumfart! From 1978 to the 1990s Lego released some amazingly cool space-exploration themed sets. TVTA has been busy navigating the far reaches of the galaxy to gather a wonderful selection of adverts for our dear readers back home on Earth to enjoy. And what a feast we have in store. Just take a look at the stunning dioramas below – in our opinion some of the best toy photography you will ever see!

We begin with adverts from the home of Lego – Denmark! As always, thanks for looking and enjoy your Rumfart! 🙂

In 1949 in Denmark, interlocking bricks known as “Automatic Binding Bricks” were created by Ole Kirk Christiansen of the Lego company. The design was based on the UK-patented “Kiddicraft” self-locking bricks. By 1958 Lego had modified its version into the famous and much-loved brand that we all know today. Although many new Lego designs and innovations have emerged since then, those original interlocking studded bricks from more than fifty years ago are still compatible with the modern sets of today.

TVTA’s collection of Lego ads feature some superb examples from around the world, including some excellent Danish ones – the home of LEGO! Thanks for looking 🙂
