Would You Buy A Full-Size House Made Of Lego Bricks?

Would You Buy A Full-Size House Made Of Lego Bricks?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"British TV host James May says the world`s first full-size home made of Lego building blocks, which he built, likely faces destruction.

The `Top Gear` co-host said he and almost 1,000 volunteers constructed a two-story home in the British county of Surrey, made of 3.3 million Lego bricks, but now they can`t find a willing buyer, The Daily Mail said.

May and his crew built the 20-foot-tall Lego home at Denbies Wine Estate, but vineyard officials want it removed before they harvest their grapes. May said Tuesday is the deadline for finding a buyer for the toy home, which comes equipped with a working shower and toilet."


Lego building blocks were a lot of fun when I was 6 or 7-years-old, but when I became a man I put away childish things. James May should find a more educational and worthwhile hobby, like reading or jogging.

May is surprised that he can`t find a buyer for a full-size home made of Lego building blocks. Duh, he should have thought of that before he invested so much time and money in such a ridiculous enterprise.

Parents might buy a Lego home for their child, but not if it`s as big as their home. There is simply no market for a humongous Lego toy home.

May could recoup some of his money if he sold tickets for the destruction of the Lego home, or he could auction off the right for someone to blow it up.
