Over the years we have seen hundreds of incredible LEGO® brick sculptures achieve Guinness World Records titles across the globe and now the LEGO Group has set a record that will really blow you away.
A team of LEGO experts spent around 600 hours building the world’s Largest LEGO® brick wind turbine and then assembling it outside the Liverpool ONE shopping centre in Liverpool, UK.
A staggering 146,251 plastic bricks were used its construction.
Guinness World Records adjudicator Anna Orford officiated the attempt in front of a huge audience, including many young school kids.
She called on the help of a professional independent surveyor who had to jump inside a cherry picker to measure the enormous structure.

The Danish company attempted this challenge to celebrate the fact that LEGO now balances 100% of its energy use with energy from renewable sources, since investing in Liverpool’s Burbo Bank Extension wind farm.
The famous toy company also wanted to show kids the importance of using renewable energy and learning about environmental issues.
Bali Padda, CEO of the LEGO Group said:
We see children as our role models and as we take action in reducing our environmental impact as a company, we will also continue to work to inspire children around the world by engaging them in environmental and social issues.
The record-breaking LEGO wind turbine will now be relocated permanently to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, UK.
