Lego Eiffel Tower: Will It Bring The Paris Experience?
For decades, kids and adults alike have played with Lego. For some adults, a little regression and getting out the Lego blocks is a relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon. How about Lego building and the chance to experience Paris with your sweetheart albeit on a relatively small scale? Well, the Lego Eiffel Tower might just be the thing
This structure provides you with your very own version of a legendary classic at 1:300 scale, all in the convenience of your home. The kit includes 3,428 pieces of durable Lego plastic and an instruction manual for the whole building process. The completed model measures 20 inches in length, 20 inches in width, and 42.5 inches in height. This is quite a complex building process so we recommend that it’s best suited for modellers aged 16 years old and above.
Pro 1: Accuracy
For something as simple as building a structure made of Lego, the accuracy is especially impressive, in a cute and Lego-ish kind of way. Although the whole product seems a little rough around the edges, it has its own unique accurate representation of the tower.
Pro 2: Beauty
The final output looks absolutely gorgeous and is without eye-catching. The 42.5-inch height makes it pretty much unmissable in any room. The beauty of the completed building is almost comparable to the appeal of the real Eiffel Tower, making it one of the best Lego re-creations of all time.
Pro 2: Easy-To-Understand Manual
Another thing that makes this product worthwhile is its instruction manual. The manual is very easy to understand and interpret. The age requirement of 16 years old is spot-on due to the complexity of the product’s construction that is appropriate for the age range.
Pro 3: Educational And Fun Experience
The educational experience that this product provides is excellent. For children below the recommended age, there is still fun to be had under the guidance of an adult.
Con: Separate Construction
Although we think the final product has loads of interesting features, the design is not overly durable. This is because the top and the middle parts of the full Eiffel tower are separate. This means one small bump on the top part would break the whole tower other than the base. This could be solved by glueing all the separate parts together or keeping it somewhere safe out the way of the dogs wagging tail!
Final Thoughts: Sure To Bring The Paris Experience
The Lego Eiffel Tower is an amazing package. It has the features to create one of the most recognisable buildings in Europe. Despite its minor shortcoming of being easily breakable, the tower provides a great family experience. Even better that it provides the opportunity for engineering and geography lessons. The easy-to-decipher manual is another big bonus allowing for quick construction.
