The World's Tallest LEGO TowerJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 16 May 2012
They even let the Danish Crown Price Frederik place one of the last blocks on the tower, to honor the 80th Anniversary of the famed toy company, LEGO. In Seoul, Korea, in front of the Olympic Stadium, 4,000 children and over 500,000 LEGO blocks came together to create, at least for the time being, the tallest LEGO tower ever constructed at 105 feet. If this were done in America, after about 3-feet the kids would have been bored. The project took 5 days to complete. What, you can't work faster?
We were trying to research why South Korea would be the home of this tower, and not say, Denmark, but our research department (ie, me) came up with the information that LEGO was the first branded toy sold in South Korea. There is a love connection here.
