There Are Beaches Where You Can Find Lego Instead Of Sea Shells

In 1997, the cargo ship Tokio Express was hit by a massive wave 20 miles from Cornwall, England. When the ship tilted it lost 62 containers that fall into the sea. One of the them held nearly five million pieces of Lego.

It is amazing but now, nearly two decades later, these tiny pieces continue to wash up along British coasts. Tracey Williams, a British writer and probably a big Lego fan, runs Facebook page Lego Lost at Sea – to document the discoveries.

It would seem to be a child’s dream!
