On Wednesday evening, we had dinner and a private tour at the LEGO House – Home of the Brick. The LEGO House was an amazing experience for all.

The Tree of Creativity is over 15m tall. It took over 6 million bricks - as many Legos as we have Hoof Health registrations in our database - and 24,350 hours to assemble.
