There's An Amazing Lego House In Denmark And You Can Stay There
There are thousands of dream homes available to rent for a night or seven on Airbnb, but the online homesharing network is now offering the chance to stay in a truly unique place - a house built out of 25 million Lego bricks.
Yes, you read that right. 25 million. We can't even imagine how long that took to piece together, but it must have been forever. And while it might not be the cosiest or most comfortable home in the world, judging from the pictures, it looks very, very cool.
Not only is there a six-metre-tall Lego waterfall above the main bedroom, but there's a teddy bear, a TV, a tray with a pot of coffee and a newspaper, books and a pet cat - all made from the little plastic bricks. Whoever stays there will also get a free lunch served by Lego robots.
The home is comprised of two bedrooms - each with a bed 'floating' in pools of Lego - and a living room, which has armchairs and a television made out of - well, we don't even need to say, do we?
You can't, however, just rent out this home - which is in Billund Denmark, where the original Legoland opened in 1968. Instead, you have to enter the competition launched by Airbnb to find a creative Lego superfan.
What does that entail? Quite simply, Lego aficionados of whatever age are asked to describe the one thing they would build together if they had an infinite supply of Lego bricks.

Winners of the contest will get to stay in the Lego House for a night and create - or at least try to create - their wining idea with the help of professional 'master builder' and design manager specialist Jamie Beard.
"I am so intrigued to see what people will imagine," said Jamie. "We have unlimited bricks here, and in some ways it can be a bit challenging but it also liberates you to imagine something that is truly meaningful and expressive.
"The uniqueness of the opportunity to stay in the home of the Lego brick should hopefully inspire everyone. That's how I feel when I come here."
How you top building a two-bedroom Lego house with a living room is beyond us, though.
