This is one of those companies you almost want to root for but, in the end they are still taking our $$$$$$.

Lego's quality is pretty unmatched when you think about it.  There's just unlimited potential, and they have minimal investment outside of licensing and the odd new elements they create. 

Everything they do is adorable too...  It's hard to avoid Lego when you are so tempted to buy it just for the mini-figures even.  ::)
