Description
When completed in 1973, the Willis Tower was the world's tallest building at 110 stories. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA, the striking Willis Tower was the first skyscraper to use an innovative "bundled-tubular" design, which, as well as giving it a characteristic step-back appearance, also provides stability against high winds. Willis Tower also features some of the fastest double-decker express elevators, traveling to the 'sky lobbies' at a rapid 1,600 feet per minute. This LEGO Landmark series interpretation of Willis Tower was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team.

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together." The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
