LEGO fans who live in Chicago, list Chicago as one of their favorite cities, or just appreciate design will really like that this LEGO set shows off some of the city's great landmarks. It's a wonderful tribute to a city that really does have some excellent architecture. The instruction booklet is full of information and photographs about each landmark and the city in general, and we think that will be a lot of fun for older fans to read through, but there's a lot there for even younger LEGO builders to read and discover.
However, we do wish that Cloud Gate, or “the bean” as everyone calls it, was shaped a little more like the actual structure. But at such a small scale, LEGO did a decent job.
