Wordless Wednesday - It's a Tall, Tall DUPLO Tower




The little (and big) architects in our home worked hard to build a tower all the way to the ceiling. We quickly learned that that plastic blocks are ever so slightly hazardous when falling from great heights. Luckily, no Brimfuls were hurt in the making of the tower.

I'm not positive, but I think that Chile holds the record for the world's largest Lego tower with a version built last year that stands 30.94 meters (102 feet) tall!

My daughter LOVES to build big duplo towers like that! I don't think she's made it all the way to the ceiling though.

Very impressive! I can't say we've ever even gotten close to the ceiling!

My grandson loves to build with legos and blocks. It's an engineer gift, I think. Anyways, your post inspired me to write a music article about the building blocks of music... so thank you!

Wow wow wow! I don't think I'm going to let me girls see this - otherwise they won't make it to bed tonight!

Amazing! You do have a lot of Duplos, but I am sure we could build a tower to stretch two stories :)

That's really cool! My hubby is really excited now to try it out, because he says he never thought to use the ceiling before. Oh the fun we're about to have tomorrow! :o)

Wow, that's pretty amazing that the blocks reached up that high without tumbling over. Pretty cool!
