Largest Lego Tower


From your child’s playroom to the streets fo Sydney, Australia, LEGO is always challenging the human imagination to produce new and remarkable creations. South Korea decided to celebrate LEGO Corporation’s 80th birthday in a huge way — by erecting a record-setting “skyscraper” created from thousands of those tiny plastic bricks.

It took 4,000 children and five days to construct this 105 ft. high building in Seoul, South Korea. Over 500,000 bricks were used in the making of the tower, which was constructed in front of Seoul’s Olympic Stadium. Danish Crown Prince Frederik laid the topping brick when the structure was revealed on Sunday, appropriately (LEGO was founded in Denmark). The colorful tower drew a large crowd, with 30,000 people present at its unveiling. The new tower beat the previous world record of 103 feet, 8 inches, which was set in France.
