Ah, Legos. We've played with them. We've coveted them. We've eaten them. We've built Imperial Star Destroyers, the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal. Lego comes from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well." And, boy, do we ever. The world's largest Lego tower, reaching 102 feet, 3 inches, was built in So Paulo, Brazil, in April 2011. Last year, 3,500 German children built the largest Lego ship (7.66 meters long), using 513,000 bricks. The longest construction (built in February 2005 in Italy) was 5,179 feet long. Friday through Sunday, 150,000 square feet of space in the Raleigh Convention Center will be filled with bundles and bundles of all things Lego, including 40 life-size Lego models plus live demonstrations from the masters who built them. The traveling expo offers five identical sessions. —Megan Stein
