GRAPEVINE - Dozens of North Texas kids woke up bright and early Thursday morning for a chance to help set a Guinness World Record. On Thursday, Lego was working with Guinness to tally the totals and verify they have set the record for the most people taking a toy construction class at the same time (building the same model).

 

Thirty young Lego builders came together inside the Grapevine Mills Mall, building a Christmas train model from 6 to approximately 6:45 A.M. while at the exact same time kids around the country and in Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom were learning how to build the same Christmas train model.

 

"It's pretty amazing. I got to be in a world record,” Daniel Goldman, a young Lego builder who participated in the class. "I'm a big fan of legos. One of my dream jobs is to become a master model builder which creates these model kits and stuff like that, so I thought it would be good practice. Free legos too!"

           

Every participant got a special certificate verifying they’re one of the builders in the world record attempt. Grapevine’s Legoland Discovery Center coordinated with seven other Legoland Discover Center and one Legoland Park to follow all of Guinness rules.

 

And, as of 11:11 a.m., they set the world record for the largest toy construction lesson.
