Something More Than Just More Legos
Lego fans are easy to shop for. Just add another box of these wildly popular bricks and they’re happy. But don’t you sometimes wish for more, maybe something to build beyond artillery and aircraft? If so, Brick City: Global Icons to Make From Lego could be just the inspiration you and your child are looking for.
Iconic Architecture and Familiar Scenery
Focusing on real-world iconic architecture from major cities across the world, Brick City also includes an occasional model of more familiar things that you might find in a particular major city, like a San Francisco cable car or a Parisian espresso machine.
Model Ideas and Instructions
A combination of showcase and idea book, Brick City gives you step-by-step instructions for some, but not all, of the models presented. Your child may not be able to build the St. Pancras Station, but he could easily construct the Charles Bridge in Prague or the penguin colony in Cape Town.
Tips on Construction, Color Blending, and More
Brick City is not only filled with interesting bits of historical information covering over 100 landmarks, the author also includes advice on construction techniques, color blending, and how and where to purchase Lego at reasonable prices. If you have an avid brick builder or a geography buff in your household, Brick City: Global Icons to Make From Lego is a marvelous gift.
Includes 2 Bonus Posters
Enclosed with the book are two dramatic posters featuring LEGO model photos of architectural world landmarks. The posters, which are suitable for framing, unfold to 17 1/2" x 24 3/4".Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2014 Fifth-Grade Curriculum Kit!
