Watch Half-Asleep Chris Build London Out of Legos

It all started with a single London Bridge set from the LEGO Creator line. That’s all it took to inspire YouTuber Half-Asleep Chris (a.k.a. Christopher Burton) to singlehandedly recreate the city of London using only Legos. To make matters more interesting, Chris didn’t take the normal route and built these sets from the comfort of his home. Instead, he went out to the real locations the sets were based on and constructed them there. All in all, Half-Asleep Chris hits over a dozen different locations throughout the city.

The London Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben… Chris even built the London skyline set while inside the gigantic London Eye Ferris wheel! Half-Asleep Chris didn’t limit himself to lifelike sets or locations, either. He also constructed several pop culture-themed builds, including Lego sets revolving around Spider-Man: Far From Home, James Bond, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, the books of Charles Dickens, The Beatles, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Legos?

Legos are small plastic building blocks that come in various shapes, sizes, and colors. The Lego Group sells their plastic bricks in the form of themed sets. They have interlocking studs and tubes that allow them to be connected and stacked together to create all sorts of structures, from simple towers to intricate models. Legos are designed for imaginative play and are loved by children and adults alike.

Is it okay to mix Lego sets together?

Yes, it is completely okay to mix Lego sets together! Compatibility is one of the greatest things about Legos. You can freely mix and match pieces from different sets to create your own unique creations. The only limit is your imagination. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your sets and let your creative juices flow!

Why are Lego sets age-restricted?

While Legos are generally suitable for all ages, some sets are too complex for younger builders to work with. While Lego sets are commonly associated with children, many adults find joy and relaxation in building with Legos too. There are many sets specifically designed for older age groups and younger age groups alike. No matter your age, building with Legos can be a fun and educational way to engage your motor skills, boost your creativity, and work on your problem-solving abilities.

Can you buy replacement Lego parts if you lose a piece?

Yes, you can buy individual Lego bricks or replacement parts directly from Lego. Their website offers a service called “Pick a Brick” where you can select and purchase specific bricks by color, shape, and size. Additionally, Lego provides a “Bricks & Pieces” service, which allows you to order specific pieces or replacement parts for sets you already own. No one wants to find out they’re missing an important piece, but at least Lego is willing to help amend the problem.

How do you wash Legos?

Over long periods of time, Legos have been known to accumulate dust and become dirty. To clean them, you can place the bricks in a mesh bag or pillowcase and wash them in a sink or a washing machine on a gentle cycle with mild soap. (Make sure to remove any delicate or electronic parts beforehand.) After washing, let the Legos air dry completely before storing or using them again.
