Ford Explorer in Legoland

It was so hard to take a photo of this without people... It was just swamp with people all day long.





It took more than 380,000 brightly colored plastic Lego blocks to make a full-size version of the Explorer, part of a promotion between Ford and a new Legoland theme park in Florida. Twenty-two designers worked on the project, and it ended up weighing as much as a car: 2,654 pounds with a 768-pound interior aluminum base.

Check this video out... it shows the time-lapse view of how they build the Ford Explorer.



Ford even have driving school for kids under 12. These kids get to drive a motorized Lego car with traffic lights and signs. And if they follow all the rules they can get a license after.








My daughter got hers! She's very proud of it too!
