Created In 1958...

1958 was such an awesome year for creativity. Not only was I fearfully and wonderfully made in 1958, but several other entities, companies, cartoons and cool stuff was created or invented in 1958.
For example...
Legos Building Blocks
The Legos Company has produced 2 million legos every hour of every day since 1958. That is enough for every person in this world to own 62 legos each!
Papa Smurf and Smurfette
Pierre Culliford better known as "Peyo" first introduced the tiny blue creatures in October 1958. He called them "Schtroumpfs"; When the U.S. became interested in them they became known as "Smurfs" worldwide. They debuted in the United States on NBC television in 1981 and instantly became a household word. UNICEF and the Smurfs joined forces in 2007 to promote children's rights to education worldwide. Also to raise awareness of 'child soldiers' in Africa.
