Recently my daughter had bought and build the Lego set of the Trevi Fountain in Rome. And as she really likes and enjoys building things, she decided to buy another set to build. She went with her mom one Saturday, and returned with the Lego White House. It did not take her very long to build this.
The Lego Architecture series certainly have an appeal, particularly to older children/teenagers, who perhaps enjoy building things. With so many different models to choose from, there will likely be one to appeal to everyone.
On top of the fun of building the Lego structure, it also holds some educational information pertaining to the structure in question. A sort of build as you learn.
And the final product after it is built:
I can certainly understand why my daughter enjoys building these. If I was young again, I would probably be interested in this series as well. It will make a nice present for an older child/teenager.
