The World’s tallest Lego tower has been completed in Seoul, South Korea, built by 4,000 children, using 500,000 bricks and measuring 105ft high.
The toy tower was unveiled on Sunday by Danish Crown Prince Frederik, who laid the final record-breaking brick, as part of a celebration to mark Lego’s 80th birthday.
The structure, which stands in front of Seoul’s Olympic Stadium beats the previous record, set in France last October, by just 3cm.
There’s a special reason for Lego to celebrate its birthday in South Korea. The bricks are hugely popular in the country, having become the first branded toy sold there. And it’s not the first time a Korean tower has held the world record – back in 1996 a structure in Seoul claimed the title, measuring a much more modest 68ft tall.
