FACES January 2020. Denmark’s geography sets it apart from its European neighbors. You are never more than 30 miles from the sea in this Scandinavian country. 
FACES January 2020

Colorful and cheerful, there’s no mistaking the picturesque images and smiling faces of Denmark! Get to know this fascinating land through the language, the locations, the lore—and the Legos!—with this edition of FACES Magazine.


From little Legos to titan trolls, there is so much to discover in Denmark and this edition of FACES Magazine takes you cavorting around the country! As you and your kids meet Danes, ride bikes around Copenhagen, learn the language (which is not too far off English), try the foods (similar to our own), hear the stories (which may sound familiar), explore the amusement parks (which influenced our own), and more, you’ll realize how close we are to the Danish people, but you and your children will understand why the people of Denmark are considered among the happiest in the world.
