The Sunday Guardian - - Profile -

HELSINKI: A Bri­tish fam­ily spent the night at the newly opened Lego House in Bil­lund after win­ning a com­pe­ti­tion de­scrib­ing what they would build if they had an un­lim­ited sup­ply of Lego bricks. The Wool­la­cott fam­ily’s space sta­tion noo­dle shop was se­lected from more than 24,000 en­tries in a com­pe­ti­tion ran by Airbnb and Lego. The fam­ily from Scot­land re­ceived a tour of the build­ing, en­gi­neered robotic cars, played with in­ter­ac­tive games and also had to build their own lunch or­der out of Lego bricks which was then sent to the kitchen to be made into real food. In the evening they were able snug­gle up in their beds in the chil­dren’s play area that had been con­verted into a ho­tel room for the night. Dan­ish toy­maker Lego opened the 12,000 square me­ters (130,000 square feet) build­ing in Septem­ber. It houses three restau­rants, a Lego store, four play ar­eas and a gallery dis­play­ing the his­tory of Lego and cre­ations made by fans.
