Lego Architecture Eiffel Tower 21019 Review
If you don’t mind, I will mention some historical facts about the Eiffel Tower first. It is a famous structure located on the Champ de Mars in the France’s capital city, Paris. It’s named after the engineer, Gustave Eiffel. This engineer’s company designed the tower and built it. Actually, it was the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair Exposition (Exposition Universelle) that marked 100 years from the French Revolution. Since then the tower has become an iconic symbol of both France and Paris. It is also one of the most recognizable structures in the world.
The building process was very easy and I really enjoyed it. The final result is a detailed model of the Eiffel Tower. It also includes a stand with both an English and a French sign; “The Eiffel Tower” and “La tour Eiffel”. One is on the front side and the other one is on the back side. And since the model is geometrically the same from both sides (front and back), you can choose which one of these two signs will be your preferred one.
In the packaging, you will also find a collectible booklet that contains historical information about the Eiffel Tower, its design, and architecture.
This Lego set was released in 2014 as part of the Lego series called Lego Architecture. It contains 321 pieces and most of them are of the gray color. It is recommended for the kids of the age 12 or older. The dimensions of the finished model are 12 x 4 x 4 inches (31 x 11 x 11 cm).
The set comes with the Eiffel Tower booklet in which you will find some historical facts about the Eiffel Tower and the building instructions, too. In my opinion, the final model represents the real tower very well. It really looks like a small model of the real Eiffel Tower. It took me one hour to build it.
If you are a fan of architecture or just like the Eiffel Tower, like I do, you should get yourself (or your kids) a small gift by purchasing this set. Finally, I’d like to thank my brother Lukas for taking the photos of this set for me.
Overall, I have to say that I really like this Lego model, and for sure, it won’t be my last Lego Architecture set that I have bought. 🙂
If you purchase this Lego model, I recommend that you check out my other article in which I have reviewed the light kit for this Eiffel Tower Lego model. The illuminating effect looks very nice at night.
Lego enthusiast, big Lego Technic fan. I have been blogging about Lego since 2017, when I started this blog. When I’m not writing an article for this blog or building a Lego set, I’m probably riding my bike. You can find out more about me here.
