LEGO REACHES NEW HEIGHTS



While visiting Disneyland we stopped by a store that sold nothing but LEGO. LEGO are those little brick-like pieces of plastic that can be stuck together by the protruding pegs on them. All the things you see in the photos are made from LEGO.
The Giraffe is 23 feet tall and he was constructed out of a Quarter of a Million LEGO pieces.
I thought that that was an amazing animal likeness.
To take a closer look just click on the picture.

Very cool. Yes, LEGO are those little bricks that you invariably step on while barefoot.

l'ESB derrière en lego, me fait penser au Toys R Us de Time-Square, ou ils ont fait l'ESB, la statue de la liberté et le Chrysler building tout en légo. Elle est magnifique cette girafe, je n'image pas le temps de travail pour arriver a ce résultat.

this reminds me of Legoland in Denmark. I was there in the early 1980's. It was fascinating.

Amazing! :-)

Legos are great,
our floors for years were plastered with them, with more than one layer. ;-)

Great leggo giraffe! And other things. They are very versatile building blocks. I have seen several other photos of wonderful things made from Leggo bricks. - Dave

Greetings from sunny colourful Finland to you, Sue!
Lego!! We have three big boxes them waiting for grandchildren`s creativity :)
And my four "big" grandchildren were in Disneyland of Paris last July. They had many stories about that journey.
I am glad for you, that you can still enjoy also about these kind of things.

Happy Tuesday!

When I saw the photo (excellent, by the way) and the word Lego, I thought that such a monumental piece had to be sponsored by Lego as an ordinary living soul could not afford to buy that many Lego pieces and still put bread and soup on the table.
