Korea Breaks The World Record For Tallest LEGO Tower [Video]
A team of children help construct a record-breaking building made with toy bricks.
LEGO Korea celebrated the toy company’s 80th birthday by constructing a record-breaking tower in Seoul. The tall architecture was built entirely of the toy bricks and the five-day event was televised live. 50,000 bricks were used to create a LEGO building standing at 31.9 meters (105 feet). China Daily reports that the event attracted over 30,000 visitors and about 4,000 children helped out.
The first record for the world’s tallest LEGO tower was built in 1988 by a team in London. Since then, 30 different records have been set and broken. The current record-breaking tower can be found just outside Seoul’s Olympic City stadium.
