Celebrity Endorsements and Film Partnerships Make 2011 the Year of Lego for Toy Users at dooyoo.co.uk

The Danish Toy Company has Enjoyed Renewed Popularity in British Markets-and has Picked Up Huge End-Of-Year Buzz on the User-Generated Comparison Site

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2011) - Customer opinions on dooyoo.co.uk indicate that, following renewed success in 2010, 2011 looks set to mark another strong year for Lego products.

The Danish toy manufacturers, whose name comes from leg godt (meaning play well), had been faced with the possibility of being seen as a 'retro' toy that may lose its enduring popularity with children and adults alike.

However this year has seen a continued upsurge in positive reviews from customers on reviews website dooyoo.co.uk. And this is reflected in the business success of Lego.

The brand has enjoyed a significant boost in market shares over the last year, and whilst consolidating on growth in traditional North American and European markets, it has also looked to open up new markets in places such as India.

Lego's retail sales grew by 48% in 2010, boosted by a partnership with Harry Potter which saw new games and landscapes come to life for characters from the books and films.

But the real story is in its relationship with its customers. Positive reviews from Christmas 2010 and throughout 2011 for some of Lego's classic ranges - Lego Duplo, Lego City and Lego Star Wars - have been the real core to the brand's success.

Cheap, stocking-filler items such as the Star Wars Yoda Keyring have received consistent 5-star reviews from dooyoo.co.uk users, who assess items on personal criteria, usability, value for money and looks.

As a final icing on the cake of dooyoo.co.uk customers' love affair with Lego is surely the celebrity endorsements it has also garnered.

These come not simply from fictional characters like Harry Potter and Darth Vader, but recommendations from high profile names like David Beckham, who last year revealed an obsessions with Lego's Taj Mahal building set.
