World’s Tallest Lego Tower Built By Kids In South Korea

The world’s tallest Lego tower was built by kids (and adults) in South Korea over the weekend.

The tower, a whopping 104.66 feet (31.9 meters) in height, beats the current record holder for the world’s tallest Lego tower which was built in France. That tower stood at 103.67 feet (31.6 meters). The French are fond of towers, aren’t they? They already have the Eiffel Tower.

Anyway, 4,000 kids supervised by adults built the Lego tower in South Korea. These kids were chosen through a lottery they participated in and they handled 50,000 Lego bricks for the building of the tower which went on for five days.

The Crown Prince of Denmark had the honor to hammer the tip of the tower – which was built to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Lego – in place.
