Waverly here! I’m sure everyone has heard of Guinness World Records, and I don’t know about you, but it’s a tradition for me to get the new books every time one comes out! I’ve been doing that since about 2010, when I was 2. So I always thought, “What would it be like to actually attempt a Guinness World Record?” Well, it was my turn to try my hand at a record! How did it go? Check this out!
Ok so I can tell you that it was much harder than I thought it would be and I definitely have a new respect for every single Guinness World Record Title/Holder…but like I said in the video, I’m happy just reading about them! I’m still working on this year’s book – it is literally filled with amazing people doing amazing things! Learn more about the 2020 book

Take a look and learn a little about Guinness World Records for yourself!
What I love about Guinness World Records is that it really shows us that there are so many interesting, brave, unique and, of course, awesome, people all over the world who can show us that life does not have to be boring or usual. If it weren’t for Guinness World Records, how would we know anything about the world’s oldest man? Well, here you go:
Can’t wait to see what happens next and I definitely can’t wait to visit again. Until then, I’ll be practicing my chopstick skills….
