Tourist Spots You Can Build
Now your older children can construct super-small, palm-sized versions of some of the world's most famous buildings with award-winning Nanoblocks. Japan, with its history of miniaturizing everything from trees (bonsai) to poetry (the haiku), has taken its passion for detail, precision, and refinement and applied it to construction kits with the revolutionary Nanoblock Mont Saint Michel. Perched on a rocky islet between Normandy and Brittany stands Mont Saint Michel, the "Wonder of the West," a Gothic-style Benedictine abbey that was built between the 11th and 16th centuries.
Pixel Art Versions of the Mont Saint Michel
The Nanoblock Mont Saint Michel's very tiny size means that far more detailed models with a much greater degree of accuracy can be built in a smaller space and at less expense. This pixel-art version of the Mont Saint Michel is sized just right for a desk, making the Nanoblock Mont Saint Michel a perfect gift for the office worker. And because the smaller bricks allow more detail to be packed into a significantly smaller space, models will look more like their subject than Legos™ can.
Liven up a Drab Office Desk
But this amazing detail comes with a trade-off. Because they are such tiny pieces, Nanoblock's edifices are not as structurally sound as Lego™ buildings and can be prone to collapse with rough play. So plan on using these architectural masterpieces more as playful accessories to liven up a drab office desk or as amazing accents to your geography studies than as a toy for a swarm of little boys. Likewise, some of these micro-sized building blocks can be difficult to hold, put together, and take apart. An older child should do fine, but a younger one will just be frustrated. Also, for those who want to know, not only are Nanoblocks way too small to be compatible with other building sets, their undersides lack the typical tubes for connectivity.
Perfect Gift for Aspiring Designers, Architects, or Collectors
Nanoblock Mont Saint Michel, with over 390 pieces and a finished size of 3.125 x 3.125 x 3.125 inches, is the perfect gift for any aspiring designer, architect, or collector, and is recommended for ages eight and older, unless your child has exceptional fine motor skills.
- Small parts. Not for children under 3yrs.
