Save James’ Lego house

Taken our guided tour of James’ house of Lego yet? It’s a two-story toy home-from-home he built for his new TV series James May’s Toy Stories.

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
