Leaning Tower of Duplo
My 2 year old godson dared me.....
About this creation
Remembering how fun Lego and Duplo are for kids (and big kids like me) - my two and a bit year old godson dared me to build a Duplo tower bigger than him - an easy enough task but then he double dog dared me to build one taller than my 6 foot 2 frame! Well we did it on the first try thanks to my steady hands and my parent's level living room floor. ......But the excitement was too much and a little bounce fom my godson ... and boom goes the dynamite!

I was actually quite surprised myself that the 2x2 duplo bricks held sturdy to that height.






My lesson for today: "nothing makes a kid happier than when the tower comes crashin down!" LOL! Happy building everyone, hope this puts a smile on your face.

Crashing towers like this is what got me interested in legos when I was a wee sprout- uh, I mean human infant.

Nice to be able to put a face to a name Chris! Also nice to see something other than a Legoformer ;-) It Sounds like you had great fun with your Godson, a lucky boy he is having a Godfather that loves Lego (shall I call you Don Corleone lol)? Joe asked me to be Godfather of his boys, it is a great honour. I love building with them when I go round to visit.

There's always something to learn in Lego or in Life!
Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free Well, maybe, but more down the lines you already know so much about Legoformers.

When we saw this it inspired my 5-year old son and I to build a Duplo tower up to the ceiling. It proved impossible on the carpet but we got there once we moved to the tiled floor. Great fun, thanks for posting this!

because I am old or stubborn? LOL!
Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free I think you can certainly teach an Old Dog some New Tricks. Though, teaching someone like you may be difficult.

Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free Good to hear, I hope that people really develop their skills from being a part of it, who knows maybe even a man of your Skills may learn a trick or two from your Members.

Strong start to the Transfomer Group its settled down now.
Quoting Secondary Admin Something so simple is quite deceiving, the idea of making such a tower is simple but the forces applied to such a slender Tower make it complicated, if you're not careful enough. Nice work on entertaining the Godchildren. Also, how's the Transformers Group coming along, in your eyes? HFR!!! has sadly ended due to issues created by the unexpected deletion of my previous account. Though, I have a different take on the Review Service now.

It would appear that I unknowingly used my Back Up Admin Account to comment on this, my apologies.
