Lego has issued a shortage warning for parents of kids who are expecting to see the colourful bricks under the tree this Christmas.

Thanks to the success of “The Lego Movie” last year, the toy has never been more popular. As a result, the Danish company says it won’t be able to keep up with the demand in December.

“We've seen huge demand for Lego products in the first half of the year, which is a great result for us,” Lego spokesman Roar Trangbaek said. “But it has put strain on our manufacturing facilities around the world. They are running at full capacity.”

Earlier this month, Lego was named one of the world’s most valuable brands, beating out other recognizable companies such as Nokia, Gap and Pizza Hut.

Today, Lego has around 12,000 employees and is still owned by the Kirk Kristiansen family that founded it over 80 years ago.
