Eating Lego is a situation you might only expect to encounter in relation to mischievous toddler who's been left unsupervised around the toy box, but at Legoland Japan it's actually a fun activity taken on by paying customers.
Okay, for fear of misleading someone into thinking your Lego bricks are edible, they're not. It's not actually the plastic bricks people are consuming at the park, but rather actual edible food that has been designed to fit in with the theme of its surroundings.
The resort in Nagoya features a Lego factory tour, rides, a cinema and a water maze, but after enjoying some of the attractions customers will naturally need to fuel up.
Food at the resort includes whimsical brick-shaped fries, burgers with a multicoloured, brick-shaped bun and even brick-shaped ice cream. There are sandwiches branded with the recognisable face of the Lego figurines, and even drinks with impressive Lego artwork floating on top.
There's something for everyone, from chicken sandwiches and wraps to pizza and pasta, and the brick-shaped dishes no doubt prove perfect for those who like to play with their food. I'm not sure what the tallest tower of fries ever made is, but having chips with a bit of extra grip would probably go a long way in helping diners break the record.
Images of the food shared online have been described as 'creative', though it's not the only theme park to offer brick-shaped food as images from visitors indicate such items are also on offer at the Legoland in Denmark.
Legoland Japan has five different restaurants to choose from, as well as a range of food stands to ensure visitors don't go hungry while learning all about the world of Lego.
Alongside the eateries, the theme part is home to more than 40 rides, shows and attractions in eight different themed lands. It holds an incredible 17 million Lego bricks and 10,000 Lego models within its boundaries - though it's unclear whether the Lego-themed food is involved in that figure. Probably not, given there'd have to be a recount every time someone swallowed.
Visitors can stay the night in the Legoland hotel which has themed rooms, from 'swashbuckling pirates' and 'brave knights' to 'powerful pharaohs' and 'Lego Ninjago', and stay entertained there with a treasure hunt complete with a clue sheet and treasure chest.
The resort is one of ten Legolands around the world, with parks also located in California, Florida, New York, Malaysia, Dubai, England, Korea and Germany, as well as Denmark.
