Just about anything can be made with LEGO. And if you’re anything like me, as a kid I yearned to craft a house made entirely out of the little plastic bricks. Now that dream has become a reality thanks to a partnership between the Denmark-centered company and Airbnb. For a single night, The LEGO Group is offering its recently-finished LEGO House to one lucky family to bring your wildest visions to life surrounded by 25 million bricks.
The LEGO House is a recently-opened facility from the beloved company and is housed within a 12,000-square meter building located in Billund, Denmark. Meant to deliver the ultimate LEGO experience, the house is filled with 25 million LEGO bricks, including a fully brick-built living area. After teaming up with Airbnb, LEGO will be offering the space exclusively to a party of 4 for a fun-filled day.
Winners of Airbnb’s contest will receive a day filled with various LEGO experiences, all while touring the entirety of the LEGO House. After checking in, you’ll kick things off by having lunch with a LEGO Master Builder, followed by time spent crafting your own creations and more. The day is ended with a walk through LEGO history where you’ll find almost a century of sets, models and more.
When the day of LEGO-based fun is complete, you’ll stay in a 2-bedroom apartment complete with a living room, brick-built armchairs, lamps, alarm clocks, books, and even a pet cat. If being surrounded by entirely LEGO-made furnishings wasn’t already exciting enough, you’ll get the chance to fall asleep underneath a six meter waterfall created from nearly two million bricks.
The living quarters also feature a majority of the amenities you can expect from a non brick-built home. You’ll find fully-functional air-conditioning, heating, a television set, and even Wi-Fi. A state-of-the-art home security system is added as well: a bucket of bricks to throw out on the floor when leaving. Some luxuries are not included however.
Missing are a washer and dryer along with any form of kitchen appliances or utensils, making the plastic home more of a novelty than an abode you’d want to live in for any extended time. Luckily you’ll be served brickfast in bed to complete your experience.
It isn’t all fun and games though, as there are some caveats to staying at the LEGO house. Parents are advised to wear LEGO-proof footwear at all times and if there’s something in your room that’s missing, you’ll have to build it yourself. And while it may be temping, swimming in the LEGO pool is wholeheartedly discouraged.
All you’ll have to do to spend the night at the LEGO House is enter Airbnb’s contest. If selected as a winner, you and 3 guests will be flown around the world for the unforgettable brick-based experience. If you don’t want to go all the way to Denmark, you can always pick up a few boxes of classic LEGO and start designing your own brick-built furnishings.
