Every year, it’s the same routine. Christmas time comes around and Rockefeller Center in New York City erects a massive tree in front of their building. We get that it’s a tradition but it could use a little sprucing (no pun intended) up. A mall in Australia found a way to do that by building a massive tree entirely out of Legos.
This is how all Legos should be given as Christmas gifts from now on because the true joy of Lego is smashing them apart so you can build them up again.
The Pitt Street Mall in Sydney, Australia unveiled a 32-foot tall Lego tree as part of their impressive Christmas display. The tree weighs nearly 3.5 tons and is made up of over 500,000 bricks that include Lego and Duplo building blocks. The display not only features a massive tree but also presents, candy canes standing in lumps of snow and a beach bound Santa Claus with his surfboard.
This tree may not break the world record for the tallest Lego Christmas tree (that honor belongs to the UK’s Bright Bricks and their 40-foot tall creation) but it definitely kicks the ass of every other, so-called “impressive” Christmas tree on display including the Rockefeller Center tree. That’s assuming, of course, that trees have asses to kick.
