Lego has been a favorite pastime for years now and its popularity has been helped recently with the news that David Beckham is a big fan. The football icon has confessed that if he wasn’t a footballer building with the small bricks would be his dream pastime.

An article in TheSun.co.uk is reporting that the England football star revealed he spent his spare time in Italy building a huge Lego model of the Taj Mahal. Since he revealed his pastime sales of the 5,922 piece set have soared 663 percent in just one day of sales.

This has delighted Lego bosses and in a gesture of appreciation have invited the L.A.
