Kids Flock to Billund For The LEGO Global Building Event

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This past weekend, kids from 34 countries traveled to Billund, Denmark for a series of special tours of the LEGO headquarters, factories, and the company’s legendary Idea House (the LEGO museum) as well as LEGOLAND Billund. After the tours, the kids participated in huge building event where they each created a LEGO model that represented their country and then placed it on a giant LEGO map of the world.

The US contingent consisted of Greg Wakefield of Colorado, his best friend, and their dads. Congrats Greg & company for winning the trip to Denmark and  representing the U.S. in this great event!
