6000 Brazilian kids build the world's tallest Lego tower

This isn't the first giant Lego tower we've seen, but I think it's extra cool because most of the builders were Lego's primary customers, kids.

Constructed over four days, the kids would build small sections down on terra firma, which were then lifted and placed on the top of the record breaking tower with a crane. The last of the 500,000 pieces used was put in place by Brazilian soccer star Cafu.

The 102-ft 3-in tower breaks the former record held by a tower built in Chile in 2008.
