LEGO celebrated its 90th birthday Thursday the only way possible - it unveiled a massive birthday cake of LEGOs, made from a whopping 94,128 bricks and pieces.
Employees built the nine layer cake -- one layer for each of the nine decades of LEGO play.
It's on display at the LEGO HOUSE in Billund, Denmark.
Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen founded the company in 1932 and it's still family owned.
The LEGO brick in its current form was first manufactured in 1958.
The company is also celebrating with its first World Play Day -- with events around the world to encourage and help families and communities to play more. LEGO, by the way, comes from the Danish phrase "leg godt," which means "play well."
