Obsessed with architecture? Odds are that obsession began, as it did for certain members of The Real Estate Desk, with some LEGO blocks as a child. That is part of the excitement of the LEGO Architecture series–it’s LEGOs for grown-ups, eschewing the pirates and spacemen the toys typically traffic in. (Not that there’s anything wrong with a fully grown man, living in the big city, playing with LEGOs on a quiet Saturday night. Right?)
The Danish company has just released its second set of building blocks in the Architecture series, and it has turned once again to the grandest skyline in the world for inspiration. Following up on last year’s Empire State Building and Guggenheim, there will now be a Rockefeller Center set to entertain the child in all of us, or those who have always dreamt of being a Speyer. To top it off, they’re only available in select locations, one of which happens to be the new LEGO flagship at… Rockefeller Center.
The $39.99 set includes 260 pieces, measures 5.4 inches high when built and is recommended for children over the age of 10. This being New York, probably cut that in half, our kids being so adorably sophisticated and grown-up.
