Product Description
All children love Lego but have they been told the story of Lego that is floating up on beaches around the world.

In 1997, a cargo ship sailed from Rotterdam to New York City. A rogue wave did hit the ship near England causing it to tilt 60 degrees one way and then 40 degrees back before spilling containers overboard. The violet wave caused 5 million pieces of Lego to break free from their containers and fall deep into the ocean.
