It stands 102 feet high or about the equivalent of a 10-storey building and it was crafted by about 6,000 Brazilian youngsters over four days earlier this month.
It’s the world’s tallest Lego structure – a whopping 25 centimeters taller than the previous record held by a (now heart-broken) group from Chile.
Though officially the tallest Lego structure in the world, it still apparently is comprised of many less pieces than the Lego house built in the UK – which we diligently reported on in this post. The Brazilian tower did however still manage to use more than half a million pieces.
Anyway, kids in Sao Paulo, Brazil: Congrats! (And, from Lego shareholders across the world, thanks!)
