The 100ft structure was record breaking.
Built by 6,000 volunteers in Sao Paulo, Brazil this past weekend, it took 500,000 Legos to construct!
Such was the scale of the task, Lego sent designers from Denmark to help build the tower, which stands at exactly 102.33 feet. This is just under ten inches taller than the previous record holder, built in Chile in 2008.
The battle of Lego towers begin back in 1988 with a 50 feet tower built in London.
Here’s the video news report from the BBC (So the news anchor has an English accent, which is always cooler).
6,000 volunteers! That’s a lot of people!
If we could figure out a way to build homes out of Legos, imagine how many homes could be built for the homeless!
