Wonders of the World!

I had such a jam packed weekend! I was confronted with the chock-a-block traffic at the Arc de Triomphe, saw the Empire State Building, and admired the colour scheme and architectural design of the Saint Basil’s Cathedral… that’s not all, I even took a stroll around the ever so popular St.Mark’s Square in Venice. How is it possible that I could cram so much into one day you ask? Thanks to The Brickman! 

The only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere, Ryan McNaught and his expert team spent 4,944 hours building ‘Wonders of the World’ and Brisbanites are lucky enough to admire a world of epic LEGO masterpieces as this global exhibition premiered in Brisbane last Wednesday, 23 November, marking the beginning of the Australian tour. We took Minibun George there yesterday and he was ecstatic!

I love the fact that the exhibition is super interactive. There are lots of activities for big and small LEGO fanatics to get their hands on. It put a smile on my face watching the other travel bunnie and Minibun George build a pyramid together. The exhibition has more than 50 awe-inspiring and never before seen models on display. You will be taken on an around the world trip from the Taj Mahal in Agra to Osaka Castle, from Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro to Notre Dame in Paris and the Big Ben in London. Not only that, the exhibition will also take you back through history where you will find yourself at the Lost City of Troy or standing in front of the sinking Titanic. The exhibition runs daily until Wednesday, 14 December at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre before continuing around Australia stopping in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Booking is advisable and can be done on Ticketek’s website. 

Bon voyage! 

PS. the detail of the models is absolutely remarkable and I could easily have spent hours looking at each of them. You will find so many interesting characters, like a shirtless President Vladimir Putin riding a horse, a panda riding a bicycle on the Great Wall of China and a mime performing in front of the Notre Dame. 

Disclaimer: DolceBunnie and the family were invited guests of the exhibition. We loved the exhibition so much that we ended up buying loads of LEGO sets on the way out. #NoRegrets! Please note that the views and opinions expressed in this post are as always, my own.
