The Lego House Wins 2009 Sugar Award for Favorite Lego-Themed Item

Best of 2009 Winner: Favorite Lego-Themed Item

It's no doubt that we all love Legos, and taking the title of our favorite Lego-themed item for 2009 (by a huge margin) is the giant Lego House. And I'd have to agree! It's amazing what Lego fanatic and artist James May put together earlier this year, and it's definitely one for the record books. This two-story Lego palace, which was set up in the middle of a vineyard, sports a working bathroom, and is covered inside and out with bricks pieced together by 272 Legos. More than three million bricks were used to build the Lego pad, so doing some quick math here — that's over 816 million Lego pieces!
