We all had pretty big dreams about what we wanted to be when we grew up. Firefighters, ballerinas, doctors.

And while all of those are (somewhat) obtainable, it’s probably safe to say you never thought you’d be able to get paid to just play with Legos all day, right?

Well, friends, that too is a real job. All you have to do is live in Ohio and be really good at building things out of Legos.

Legoland Discovery Center in Columbus is looking to hire a “master model builder.”

For a chance at a full-time job building models out of Legos once the Columbus location opens in fall 2018, you’ll need to enter Legoland’s Brick Factor competition.

You’ll need to do more than your standard resume submission though, because just like it says, this is a competition.


The Lego-building competition will be held Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6 at Easton Town Center in Columbus.

Once you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive additional details outlining the competition.

Check out this video to see just how intense a master builder competition got in 2016:

Before applying, you should know you’ll be required to lead workshops for Lego fans, attend media appearances and be comfortable in the public eye, so if you’re a secret Lego enthusiast, this job is probably not for you.
