102 foot tower built mostly by children breaks previous record set by Chile.

In the parking lot of a shopping center in Sao Paulo, Brazil, 6000 children and parents spent 4 days building the world's tallest Lego tower. Standing at 102 feet and made from 500,000 Lego bricks, it broke the previous record set by Chile in 2008 by 9.8 inches.

Lego sent designers from Denmark for the world record attempt, and Brazilian soccer star Cafu was given the honor of placing the final piece. Since the first Lego tower was built back in the 1980's in London reaching 50 feet, the title has traveled to many countries around the world.
