Lego caravan sets Guinness World Record… [video]
A lego caravan has set a Guinness World Record for the largest caravan built with interlocking plastic bits. And the best bit, everything inside it works…
IT TOOK THE British Lego builders more than 12 weeks, 1000 hours and 215,158 individual bits of Lego to construct the largest caravan built with interlocking plastic bricks. It went on show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2015.
The Lego model was built by a team of 12 professional Lego builders, yes, apparently that’s a job, and measures 2.2m tall by 3.6m long. According to the builders, “the life-sized camper is based on a real “teardrop” style caravan (as required by Guinness World Records guidelines), and features fully-functioning amenities including a sink with running water, electric lights, a bed, seating, a chess set, toothbrushes and even simulated cooking facilities and fridge”.
James Bissett, marketing campaign director for attempt organisers NCC Events and planner of the Motorhome & Caravan Show, said: “We wanted to create something truly unique to celebrate 130 years of leisure caravanning and we are absolutely delighted with our record-breaking model.”
