Full size, functional caravan made of LEGOs sets Guinness record
A new Guinness World Record was set in Birmingham, England, on Monday, for the largest caravan build with interlocking plastic bricks.
In other words, a team of 12 professional LEGO builders got together in England and assembled a 215,158-piece caravan built entirely of LEGOs. It also features running water, electricity and a foldout bed.
The caravan looks virtually identical to a real “teardrop” style caravan, as required by the Guinness World Records guidelines.
The project took over 1,000 man-hours during the course of 12 weeks, with the result now on display at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2015 in England.
“We wanted to create something truly unique to celebrate 130 years of leisure caravanning and we are absolutely delighted with our record-breaking model,” James Bissett, marketing campaign director for attempt organisers NCC Events and planner of the Motorhome & Caravan Show, told the Guinness World Records website.
Following the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2015, the record-setting caravan will be on display at LEGO fan event BRICK 2015 in Birmingham, England, from Oct. 29-Nov. 1, and will then head to London’s Excel from Dec. 10-13.
