That’s the good news. The bad part is that the house is currently condemned to demolition on Tuesday. Brick-by-brick, it’ll be dismantled and lost forever.
It wasn’t always going to be that way – the original plan was for Legoland to transport the construction, made entirely from real toy bricks, to make a permanent display at its Windsor amusement park. But they can’t afford it.
So we’re starting a campaign to save the world’s first – and only – Lego house by finding somebody with pockets deep enough to save it for the nation.
The estimated cost? The, er, toy scientist types that built it reckon it’ll take around £50,000 to dismantle and reassemble – and we reckon it’s worth more than that in bricks alone.
So, know anyone who’ll be up for it? A big corporation with an even bigger heart to help preserve a piece of history? Then get in touch.
We have until Monday lunchtime, so leave a message of support below or join our Facebook group…
