    The mosaic is done!

    It is done - the largest mosaic made of LEGO Bricks was finished today! It was an awesome activity so many thanks to Fairybricks and LEGO House!
  3. These days Fairy Bricks together with the LEGO House organize a World Record attempt in building the largest mosaic made with building bricks. The mosaic consists of almost 2700 32x32 baseplates and measures 12x14 meters. It will be build with support by the public as well as LEGO and LEGO House employees and the Guinness Book representatives will measure next Wednesday is the current record has been broken. You can find more info on the LEGO House website https://www.legohouse.com/en-gb/whats-on/pinse Se attached pictures from the LEGO staff building day (even our CEO Niels came to build a plate). Fingers crossed for Wednesday - I will keep you updated!

    LEGO House AFOL activities - save the date

    This is a LEGO House invention so rather a mini inside tour. It has nothing to do with the tours we organized or is the reason why we stopped organizing them.

    Visit to BrickCan in Vancouver

    This weekend I visited BrickCan in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was a fantastic experience being back to North America after around 10 years and feeling so welcome. The event is stunning and very cozy - around 250 great and super friendly AFOLs - I felt after the first day that I have made 250 new friends! I had the opportunity to meet with all 5 West Coast Convention Owners to discuss programs and future plans as well as meeting with 7 Ambassadors. This was truely inspiring. The event has a lot of very exciting and funny game and socializing activies, very interesting speeches and presentations as well as great MOCs on display. I enjoyed my trip very very much and I cannot give enough thanks to the organizing Crew around John Langrish, Allan Corbeil and Robin Sather and all participants for this awesome and wonderful experience and great time! I can strongly recommend to visit BrickCan - I will be back for sure!!!

    Tree of Creativity –LEGO House exclusive retail model

    @Gaetan Burm The set is not limited - it is a production run of 10.000 copies and as this is an exclusive to LEGO House set there might be more production runs if it sells well and potentially out.

    Live from Kockice Convention

    This weekend I visit the Kockice Convention in a small city near Croatias capital Zagreb. It is the first time that Ed Petrac and his team pull this international event off and it seems to be quite a success from the start with almost 80 participants from 13 different countries. So it is a weekend of fun and seeing old friends and making new together with a public exhibition of fantastic MOCs. I attach some pictures I took earlier today. The events website is http://convention.kockice.hr/. So I really hope that this event grows and will see many more AFOLs from all over the world in the years to come. Thanks so much to Ed, Marin and all other involved for making this great event happen! It is a true pleasure to join.

    Modular building themed AFOL evening at the LEGO House

    It was a pleasure at have you there as always! Thank you!
  14. The past Friday we could welcome over 40 happy AFOLs from 8 different countries to the Modular building themed AFOL evening at LEGO House. We had invited Are Heiseldal from Norway to host 4 interview sessions with LEGO Colleagues from Design, Engineering and Marketing as well as an hands on building session with Jamie Berard was organized. All AFOLs were invited to bring an owned designed floor for the Parisien Restaurant which we stacked to 2 quite high buildings. It was very entertaining, informative and fun evening for all involved. We plan to do more activities like that in the autumn.
