BOCA RATON, Fla. — Basic Fun!, a leading US-based toy and consumer products company behind several iconic brands including Lincoln Logs®, has partnered with Timber Moose Lodge to set the Guinness World Record™ for the “Largest Lincoln Logs Structure” at the Timber Moose Lodge in Utah, known as America’s Biggest Log Cabin. The three-day build is expected to conclude on Thursday, September 30 with a structure comprised of over 30,000 Lincoln Logs and measuring over 200 square feet.
In addition to representatives from both Basic Fun! and Timber Moose Lodge, the record breaking attempt will include select group of social media influencers, including The Influencer Marketing Factory talent and inventive content creator, Andi Aston, as well as Lincoln Logs contest winner, Beth Williams, whose prize was a trip to Timber Moose for the history-making event.
Basic Fun! and Timber Moose Lodge are benefitting top-rated children’s charity Toys for Tots to receive the proceeds from the auction of 100 specialty boxes of Lincoln Logs used in the world record build, as well as a replica of the Timber Moose Lodge made from Lincoln Logs designed and built by Andi Aston, with proceeds going to Toys for Tots Foundation.
“Because we love log cabins, love Lincoln Logs, love all things Biggest, and love doing fun things, we thought it was perfect for America’s Biggest Log Cabin to set the record for the Biggest Lincoln Logs Cabin,” said Matt Evans, who owns Timber Moose Lodge with his brother, Spencer Evans. “We already had probably the biggest collection of Lincoln Logs anywhere, and now that we’ve bought another 2.5 tons of Lincoln Logs for the world record event, we’re sure Timber Moose will have the world’s biggest collection even after we auction off 15,000 pieces to benefit Toys for Tots.”
“Lincoln Logs have been a beloved part of childhood for over 100 years, and we are thrilled to celebrate this iconic toy with an epic initiative to set a new world record,” said Jon Gumble, Basic Fun! senior product designer and lead engineer of the world record build. “The planned structure will be truly massive, and we are excited to work with Timber Moose Lodge, Toys for Toys and Andi Aston on this team effort.”
The previous Guinness World Record for Largest Lincoln Logs structure was set in South Carolina in 2018 and included 17,503 logs. The Lincoln Logs brand is owned by Hasbro and licensed by Basic Fun!
