Guinness World Record attempts at Smyths Toys Superstores

Published on: 15th November 2012

In the same week as Guinness World Records Day 2012, Smyths Toys Superstores will hold a special record-breaking workshop at its Charlton store on 17th November.

Children and adults alike are invited to try their hand at three different records: the ‘Fastest time to assemble Mr. Potato Head’; the ‘Fastest time to add ten additional levels to a Jenga tower’; and the ‘Tallest structure built with interlocking plastic bricks in one minute’. An official Guinness World Records Adjudicator will preside to authenticate the record attempts.

Prizes to be won on the day will include the new edition of Guinness World Records 2013 and official Guinness World Records’ certificates, available for anyone who can break the current world records.

Commenting on the event, Rob Guckian, spokesman for Smyths Toys Superstores, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to become involved with an event as exciting as Guinness World Records. Guinness World Records Day continues to be a brilliantly innovative idea and we’re extremely excited for Smyths Toys Superstores to be able to be a part of it. We would like to invite everyone down to our Charlton store on Saturday for what’s sure to be a fantastic day for all.”
