"We are beyond happy right now," Rebecca Atkinson of Toy Like Me says in a statement posted online. "Lego have just rocked our brick built world and made 150 million disabled kids, their mums, dads, pet dogs and hamsters very, very happy."
The family-owned Danish business became the biggest toymaker in the world in terms of revenue and profit in 2014, beating its rival Mattel, thanks in large part to the success of The Lego Movie. The company made 60 billion Lego pieces in 2014, while its sales grew 18 percent in the first half of 2015.
