In fact, if you blame the model for not being detailed enough, is that fair? Because the Sears (aka Willis) Tower is conspicuous for its lack of detail. Other than the ground-floor plaza, all the glass is black. The main edifice consists of pretty much nothing but ninety-degree angles that create definitive flat edges and flat rooflines one-third of the way up to the top, and two-thirds of the way. (In fact, people who work in the tower usually change elevators at floors 33 and 34 [connected by escalator], likewise floors 66 and 67; i.e., a third and two thirds.) A detail or two could be more solid--the real Tower's various microwave and broadcast antennae are not that symmetrical and the 103rd-floor viewing deck now sprouts little glass boxes if you want to stand there and have "nothing" underfoot. (Eek!) Despite those minor details, I am giving this a successful five stars and recommend it highly. Come visit us, too! - al-in-chgoWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Fun to put together, has lots of interesting and educational facts included inside instruction booklet. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes to do Legos. A great gift for a child as they will have fun building it and be able to use the pieces to make any other buildings their imagination comes up with.Was this review helpful?

My son thought this was cool because we had been to the Sears tower. However, for the money it is a ripoff. He put it together in about 5 minutes.

My 11-yr.-old loved receiving this as a gift. He thought the factoids included were interesting, and still had the fun of a "toy", but with a grown-up perspective.
I hope there are more in this series.

Although the age guide is for 10+, my 8-year-old son who loves skyscrapers (and Legos) put this together in a few minutes. The kit is overpriced for the number of pieces it contains, but it's a neat way for him to enjoy two of his favorite things and build his skyscraper collection. He also has the other three building sets (Empire State, Space Needle, and the John Hancock Tower).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
