After 10 years consistently building (pun intended) one of the world’s foremost empires in the toy industry, the Danish company we all know and love, LEGO, finally came crashing (pun intended) back down to earth this last quarter.
And now, they’re left to pick up the pieces.
(Oh my god that joke is the best thing I’ve ever written).
A 3% loss in profits — to a paltry half-a-billion dollars — in the first half of 2017 may mean some big changes for LEGO.
We have a feeling the company will rebound, but just in case, we won’t joke about the inevitable LEGO layoffs.
We realize that, of the hundreds of Danish who have be axed, many will be forced to join Tyco — or, in much more grave cases, MegaBlocks.
