Brazil has just finished building the World’s Largest Lego Tower and thus broke the previous record set six months ago in Chile by 25 centimeters.

Almost 6,000 participants, mostly kids, recently got together with a half-million Lego bricks to create a tower reaching more than 31.19m (102 feet) into the sky. The tower took four days to build. The Lego tower was built in the outside of ​​the Shopping Center Norte in Sao Paulo. Lego Denmark sent several experts to Brasil to help coordinate the tower construction. One of the designers Per Kjærgaard has helped construct towers in 20 different countires and another designer, Karsten Niebuhr, has helped build 10 different towers. This is a very interactive event where families take part, schools take part, explained Roberio Esteves, Lego’s director in Brazil. We promote teamwork in order to reach our main objective, which is to establish Brazil as the country that holds the record of the Lego tower.

The first Lego tower was built in London in 1988 and stood just a little over 15 meters, according to Lego. Since then the title has traveled all over the world to countries including Germany, Israel, the U.S., New Zealand, South Korea, Russia, Canada, Norway and Japan.

I think this is really important to show the world that we also like to play with Lego, said 13-year-old Gabriel Santos, who thinks the ongoing quest to build the tallest Lego tower will help connect children around the world. Nine-year-old Bruno Mendes had a more visceral reason for taking part, however. I really like risky things, like going down a huge tower where you can get killed, he said. [The Escapist]
