What It Is
Travel across the pond without leaving home when you build the LEGO Architecture London set, model number 21034. This comes with 468 pieces for building five iconic landmarks in London's skyline: The National Gallery, Nelson's Column, Big Ben, the London Eye, and Tower Bridge. Built on a four by 32 tiled base with a decorative London nameplate, each model is scaled to give an accurate representation of the comparative size of each structure with true-to-life color depiction. London's Thames River is represented by transparent baseplate tiles, and the bridge even opens up for the incoming ship. The included instruction booklet provides information about the designer, architecture, and history of each building, as well as historical facts about London and its architectural heritage.
Is It Fun?
This is a really nice set for any LEGO fan who lives in London, is a fan of London, or just appreciates good design. The instruction booklet's photographs and information will be really fun for history and architecture buffs to pore over, but we think that younger LEGO builders will also enjoy reading and discovering fun facts about the city of London.
Who It’s For
The LEGO Architecture London set is for ages 12 and up, and that's mainly because this is really more of a collector's item than a plaything. It's for LEGO fans who are interested in architecture and the designs of London's landmarks. But it could be a nice family activity to put together, especially for a family planning a London trip.
What To Be Aware Of
It took TTPM's Master Builder one hour and 15 minutes to build this set, and the instructions were easy to follow.
