World’s Tallest LEGO Tower Constructed in Seoul

In celebration of LEG0’s 80th birthday, Danish Crown Prince Frederik unveiled the world’s largest tower in South Korea last week. Nearly 4,000 children stacked 50,000 bricks in five days to help build the 105-foot-tall tower in front of ’s Olympic Stadium. The structure surpassed the previous records set last year in France at 103-feet and in Brazil at 102-feet. As reported by The Daily Mail, the record has been broken more than 30 times since the first LEGO tower was constructed in London in 1988 at a height of less than 50-feet.
