The broadband revolution and advances in video-streaming technology have helped YouTube to massive growth in the past five years.

Unlike other popular web apps – such as social sites Facebook and Twitter – YouTube has no signup requirement, meaning kids are free to log on and watch at their leisure. 

So the site has become a fertile ground for promoting kids properties, including modern toy brands like Monster High, which owes a huge part of its success to YouTube. 

Meanwhile, the community-based nature of the website means toy fans can contribute awesome content which also aids growth - something which LEGO knows all about.
