Using building blocks only millimeters wide, this fun and challenging set recreates the massive Empire State Building on a miniature scale.

Enjoy a trip around the world with your own micro-sized Empire State Building from the nanoblock "Sites to See" series. View larger.

Recreate One of the World's Most Iconic Structures

The Empire State Building is one of the most famous structures ever erected. For many years the largest building on Earth, the Empire State Building is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Using microsized building blocks, Nanoblock has recreated this iconic structure in precise detail on a truly miniature scale. This 740-piece set recreates the 102-story skyscraper in impressive detail, though the finished product is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

Our testing team found assembling this 3D puzzle to be an enjoyable and exacting task. Although it could probably be assumed, Nanoblock sets are more suited for those with smaller hands as opposed to larger ones. With easy-to-follow color directions, this puzzle can be enjoyed equally by young children as well as adults--though young children might have an advantage in assembling it as they have much tinier hands. Nanoblock indicates the intended age for this set is eight and up, but younger builders who are familiar with building blocks and following instructions would probably be able to complete this set without problems.

Precise 3D Minimodeling

Featuring building blocks as small as 4 by 4 by 5 millimeters (L x W x H ), Nanoblock uses a unique interlocking method called double fin technology to create pieces a fraction of the size of other blocks. Already a sensation in Japan, Nanoblock is bringing the 3D minimodeling craze to the rest of the world, offering fun and challenging puzzles for builders of all ages.

The parts look like Legos, but they're very small, tiny, even.
L. F. Smith
My son and I are enjoying the slow process of putting this together - he is now taking a break by doing some Lego Ninjago - his favorite.
Robert Stone
Overall, this product is worth consideration for purchase and would make a great give for oneself or someone else.

This build really did not take that long, somewhere around 2-2.5 hours which surprised me due to the sheer number of pieces. I have a few of the Lego Architecture sets including the Empire State Building, this model looks a thousand times better, more detail, more interesting to build, more pieces, and Nanoblock accomplished all of this with a smaller foot print.

I will not lie the actual building of the tower has you repeat the same steps a number of times, as you could probably guess just like I did by looking at it so when you get to the tower portion it will get tedious. It is worth it though the end result is quite attractive and well worth the grinding through building floor after floor.

I have been looking forward to getting my hands on some new sets and Nanoblock did not disappoint. I plan on getting more as they come. The price point on this is a fair amount higher than most of their other sets in the $15-20 range. These do come with more pieces, most of my other sets range from around 320 up to 580 this one has 740, so when I found out that these sets are larger and have more pieces I figured it was worth the extra price tag. As a side note the Lego version has 77 pieces. The instructions are more detailed than their other sets in the same series which is nice considering there are significantly more pieces.

I know the cost is a bit high but go to that search bar and look at the Lego version of the Empire State and you will be drawn to this one just like I was. The Lego version is one color and basically has no detail especially compared to this. The Lego version you can find around $20 but when you see it you will know exactly why it warrants the lower price. Seriously buy this now it looks great it is worth the higher price tag.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I had the chance to review this and at first I was excited. But as I started to go through the steps I hit the part where you repeat each piece 6 times, it got boring and frankly I got sidetracked and forgot where I was at and went to many times repeating myself. When I got to the end I realized I had one to many floors built and had to undo some of it. I would have liked if Nanoblock had each section of the tower in their own bags so you knew how many pieces to use for each part. It's a small nit-pick. Overall it took me around 3 hours to build and that included me getting side tracked on other tasks while I was building this.

It's good, it's not the most stable. I found that the skinny tower piece actually comes undone very easy with slight touch so you can easily knock it over. But it does look good once assembled as long as you leave it alone. Is it worth $34? (price as of 10/3/2012), I don't think so. I could see maybe paying $19.99 at the most. With a price tag of $35 I would pass on this.

I've done seven of the nanoblock structures now, and would rank them all four or five stars. Here's how I'd rank them for how interesting they are to put together, and how they look when finished:

Mont Saint-Michel
Neuschwanstein Castle (small)
Empire State Building
Easter Island statues
Eiffel Tower
Taj Mahal
Sagrada Familia

Pieces are very small and don't stay together easily. I would recommend it for kids who are very eager to build.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was a fun little puzzle the kids and I had fun putting together - we have taken a family trip to NYC before, and for the kids it was a great way to talk about the memories of our trip as it was under construction. This type of model is a whole heck of a lot better to build as a project with your children to me vs. a normal puzzle you lay out on the table and spend weeks doing as we were able to get this one done in one afternoon that trickled on to completion after dinner.

There is a lot of detail in the blocks and on the finished construction, and some of the pieces are small so you may have to pull out your glasses like I did on certain areas - the smallest pieces frustrated the kids a few times and I pulled out the tweezer portion of my mini Swiss Army knife to hold some of the pieces every once in a while. This puzzle is not really meant for taking it down and rebuilding a few times, so you may want to pick out a spot in your house to put it once you're done.

Overall, this was a lot of fun and based on the level of details in the puzzle / building it would be fun to do another one like this.

Fun to put together but blocks are really small and fingernails sometimes slowed things down. Extra blocks included so when I dropped one on floor and couldn't find it, I still could finish project.

Contains many hard to find clear blue pieces of the 1x2 and 1x4 variety. Other pieces are the standard light gray.
