LEGO Architecture 21019 The Eiffel Tower
This is the best of the smaller architecture series. It's sturdy, and slightly over a foot tall. The substantial size of the Eiffel tower makes it a better show piece.
LEGO for bigger kids, the LEGO Architecture 21019 The Eiffel Tower is super cool! This excellent 13th birthday gift idea features a detailed model of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, that kids can build. It includes a booklet with information about the design, architecture, and history of the Eiffel Tower, and 321 pieces for a blast of fun.
