Better get your Lego wish now before its to late…
According to an article on The Telegraph UK website yesterday.
Some children may not get their Christmas wishes fulfilled this year as Lego’s factories, although running at full speed, may not be able to make enough plastic bricks to keep up with demand from toy stores in Europe.
The Danish company has become the world’s largest toy maker by sales, overtaking U.S. Barbie-maker Mattel, thanks partly to toys linked to movies, including The Lego Movie.
But difficulties in forecasting demand accurately means some orders may not be filled on time.
Lego speaker Roar Trangbaek said: “We will not be able to deliver all of the orders coming from customers in the remainder of the year.”
“We are running our factories at maximum capacity and will do everything we can to meet demand.”
He declined to specify which lines of toys or which countries would be affected.
