“Lego’s brand has been built over many years, and it is facing existential challenges from new technologies. Its iconic status is under threat, but Lego are working hard to leverage its existing brand strength into new product categories. So far, while its core business certainly remains threatened, they appear to be avoiding the risk of extinction faced by other businesses which have seen fundamental challenges to their markets from new technology.”
