It's the ultimate childhood dream, heading to the beach and stumbling upon a treasure you never imagined — millions of Legos. These tiny toys keep floating ashore in England, surprising locals and visitors alike. But where are they coming from?
In 1997, a container ship named the Tokio Express was knocked by a giant wave off of Cornwall, England, spilling a container filled with almost 5 million Lego pieces into the ocean.
Now, 17 years later, little Legos continue to wash up on the shores near Cornwall as well as beaches in Devon, Ireland, and Wales. While these cute collectables offer an exciting find, they are a danger to the wildlife that inhabit the coasts where they wash up. With locals and tourists committed to collecting the flotsam, they help keep the beaches clean while still finding their beachy treasure.
