Every year there is an attempt to build the worlds tallest Lego tower. It has been build in several cities around the world. Amongst them are Moscow, Vienna, Toronto, Tokyo and Seoul. Todays record is 30.52 m and is set on June 6th 2010 in Limmen (the Netherlands).
Dutch Flower Girl (largest Lego mini figure of the world).
The tower was build mainly by (young) adults and so Limmen Ludiek who was organizing this event wanted to have a challenging program for children as well. Lego Netherlands b.v. In-stores and Events came up with the idea to create a mini figure. That's when they commissioned me to design a Dutch Flower Girl and build it so large is becomes the world's largest Lego mini figure ever build! Lego Netherlands b.v. In-stores and Events supplies all the required bricks.
Hi Dirk, thank you. You can read more about the Dutch Flower girl on my website: www.AmazingBrickCreations.com
This lady is going to be build in 4 days. 821 children will build giant Lego bricks, 109 parents and 36 teachers will support them, each day 2 people will assist two builders that build the dutch Flower Girl. All volunteers. I created the Dutch Flower Girl, buildinginstructions and I will supervise this event.
As far as we know, it is the world's largest Lego minifigure !

WoW! You couldn't do an African lady next by any chance? Hehe, just in case you are taking requests...
This is remarkable build, great effort, and I really like the cultural element. Top stuff...
It is a great event. I designed the Dutch Flower Girl exclusively for this event. If you want me to design an African (football) lady or any thing else you want to use for your event, just send me an email.
Congratulations on your first commission Robert.
The 91cm figure is the showroom model to get the "big" assignment ?
Is the assembly of the bricks-built-by-children a solo effort or are you going to have help ( I can imagine it would be incredibly difficult / exhausting moving up and down on a ladder of 3-4m and placing a brick. Probably the organization will be providing you with a scaffold to stand on? And you'll have some helpers to hand you the bricks and guide the little children on their building efforts. Will you be using any kind of non-LEGO frame or skeleton to keep the construction in place ?
Way to go, and LEGO on !
