Hello, I just discovered this forum and read some excellent threads. It is nice to see a vibrant online community (maybe this will replace Lugnet?).
A question that has always bothered me is the number of people who can actually afford to buy and play with Lego. I am pretty sure 99% of the people in Africa and Asia would balk at Lego prices. Throw in large portions of South America, majority of humans would certainly be priced out.
For all that talk of the number of Lego bricks per human (62 bricks?), out of 6+ billion people - maybe 1/2 billion may own and play with Lego.
Would be a good question to ask the management of The Lego Company. I would love to hear their thoughts on it. Maybe even be proven wrong!
