 The world’s largest brick (as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records) is named “Baby Clay.”
This mammoth brick was produced by Acme employees in 2007 and took 14 months to dry and fire.
It measures 116″ long by 39″ tall and weighs 9,000 lbs. It “resides” on a custom trailer and is
transported to special events.
