Here’s an interesting factoid about Lego for your next dinner party:

LEGO currently produces over 900 distinct LEGO pieces, or “elements” as they call them? Over the course of their history, there have been almost 13,000 distinct elements created. Now, that number includes variations in color and material, but even if you exclude those permutations, you’re still left with a staggering 2,800 different elements in the LEGO line.
