LEGO has set another Guinness World Record, this time in the category of largest caravan built with interlocking plastic bricks. Taking 12 weeks, 1,000 man-hours, and 215,158 pieces to construct, the final product is truly a marvel. The caravan is true to real teardrop trailer dimensions - mandatory to be considered for the record - making those who enter feel right at home with all the essential trailer necessities.
The trailer is on display at the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2015 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK now and will be found at LEGO’s BRICK 2015 fan event later this year. The 2.2m tall and 3.6m long vehicle may not be able to be taken on the road, but the details would make anyone do a double-take. Structurally, the interior is equipped with a bed, dining table with seating, and kitchenette. The kitchen sink actually runs water and the electrical lighting is fully functional. The simulated elements are spot-on, as well, such as a mini fridge to keep your milk and veggies cool.
Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, reportedly said, “How better to celebrate 130 years of leisure caravanning than with a world record? Record-breaking is particularly fascinating when two worlds collide – in this case, the worlds of caravanning and LEGO building!” Guinness was on the scene to present the award when the final brick was laid. With another milestone under its belt, we are left to ask: What will LEGO do next?
