For the Houston Texans Vs. Tennessee Titans game, we provided LEGO activities for many families at their pre-game tailgate. Kids were able to create LEGO Tackling Dummies, creating blitzing LEGO car linebackers, and play with the LEGO Quarterback catapults. The Houston Texans ended up winning the game. Hopefully, the LEGO was the lucky charm.
On Tuesday, September 13th, 2016, 2 years from the day that 7-Year-Old James “Jamesy” Raffone was diagnosed with the rare disease, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), we, Play-Well TEKnologies collaborated with Jar of Hope, to break the record for the World’s Longest LEGO Chain.
With the help of many volunteers, Jamesy’s classmates, as well as devoted teachers and principals from both Clark Mills School and Milford Brook School, we were able to break the record by 12 meters. The new record is 3108 Ft. or 919.89 Meters. Check out videos from the event below.
If you’d like to help Jamesy, please visit Jar of Hope at jarofhope.org.
New Jersey Local News Channels also picked up the story.
Even LEGO recognized the effort.
We are hoping to build a 200-Foot Long LEGO bridge and we will need your help in order to do it. Come learn about various types of bridge architecture, play with LEGO, and be a part of one of the longest LEGO bridges ever made in the state of Arizona, maybe even the country. The best part about it is the event is free.
There are two separate time slots to register:
- 10 AM – 12 PM
- 12 PM – 2 PM
This event will be held at Tempe Public Library.
Feel free to share this with family and friends. Be sure to sign up fast though, as we only have so many slots available.

On December 5th, 2016,Stanford University Brain Development Department and Play-Well TEKnologies helped families in the Palo Alto community build human spinal columns out of LEGO. The goal was to raise awareness about STEM education, as well as connect the Palo Alto community to the research being done at Stanford University. Over 500 parents and kids from Palo Alto participated in the event. As a group, they attempted to break two Guinness World Records. One of the tallest LEGO spinal column and one for the most anatomically correct spinal columns. They ended up building 86 anatomically correct LEGO spinal columns and one spinal column that was 9 Ft. 2 inches.
The San Francisco Chronicle covered the event.
