We do love the Lego Architecture sets, but one similar set is new to us. Perhaps because the Lego Tower Bridge at John Lewis is an exclusive to that store.
Oh yes, it is huge. Designed for 16 years and over (although we suspect it would work as a ‘dad and son’ project too for younger years), it recreates the famous London landmark in 4,287 pieces. With that in mind, this is no quick Christmas morning building task.
According to the write-up, the set uses ‘advanced building techniques and rare colours and elements’, with detailing including the paired towers and a drawbridge that opens and closes. There’s also four miniature vehicles (London taxi, traditional red double-decker bus, yellow lorry and green car); hundreds of 1 x 1cm slopes in tan, arches and angular in tan, 4x blue base plates, over 80 windows and the City of London shield.
It doesn’t come cheap either, selling for £209.95 at the John Lewis site.
