Building: My 9 year old son and I put this together in probably about an hour, which was much less time than it took to build the other two.
Size: The model was a bit smaller than I had anticipated. I imagine this is the case for a lot of the "skyscraper" models in the architecture collection though. To put this in perspective, the base for Big Ben is probably only one-fourth that of the White House and even less than that when compared to Fallingwater.
Detail: This is where the Big Ben model really shines. The detail on the tower looks great and I'd say outshines the other two models.
Durability: The tower isn't particularly stable and isn't going to hold up to a lot of play, but I don't expect that from the architecture series. These models are all fun to put together and display somewhere, but probably shouldn't be used as an active "play" toy.
Overall, we enjoyed building this model and are looking forward to our next build in the architecture series!
So, because this model is so specific it's difficult to list "Pros and Cons" because different people will get different things out of this model. So, let me point out the perspective from which I'll be rating: I'm an adult fan of lego, architecture student, and I own all of the Lego Architecture products, with that disclaimer - Here are my Pros and Cons.
+ Like other Lego Architecture models, Big Ben looks great as a display piece.
+ This product is small (7.7 inches tall); if you're a fan of miniatures you'll love it and it won't take up a lot of shelf space when displayed
+ Lots of detail for it's size.
+ Interesting additional information included in glossy instruction book.
- Slightly repetitive building during some parts of the construction.
- Steep price for non-collectors who might like to buy just this one model.
? May or May not be fun for a child, really will depend on the child
? May or May not be worth the steep price, depending on your needs
My Recommendation?Read more ›
The set would be a lot of fun for a detail-oriented kid who can follow clear and precise instructions. The resulting model is cute and elegant.
The set is labelled "12+" which I think is misleading. Generally Lego's age ratings are pretty accurate.
Overall, for fans of architectural pieces, the Architecture Series from Lego won't disappoint. This set can be assembled by kids much younger than the suggest age range as well.
