LEGO celebrating its 50

28 July 2008

LEGO is an International toy manufacturing company and it is now celebrating its 50th year of building frenzy by happy kids and kids-at-heart, basically "LEGO" Blocks are the tiny plastics building toys that apparently reminds my childhood days where i spent most of the time with that in building innovations. It not only improves our creativity but also exposes weird curiosities in every kids mind with ensured standards.

On the note of its Golden jubilee Celebration, Legoland Windsor was all set to a new world record for the tallest tower made of Lego bricks. Thousands of children and their families helped put the final bricks in place to complete the monster structure, which stands nearly 100ft tall. The tower was positioned at the main entrance of the park with the shape resembling a Viking longboat mast. It is also marked as the opening at the Berkshire theme park as "new land of the Viking". Almost half a million (500,000) bricks were used by thousands of people especially children to get this massive work done.

"We are thrilled to bring the World Record to Legoland Windsor after four days of hard work, not to mention nearly 500,000 bricks, and it now stands at nearly 100ft. It has been a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lego bricks.", says Mr. Penny Jenkins, the Park's special events manager.

This massive Lego Tower of 29.26m (100 feet) tall was awaited for its official verification by Guinness World Records to redeem its previous one at Toronto in August 2007.
