Description
LEGO Architecture Empire State Building. Completed in 1931 during the height of the Great Depression, the Empire State Building was the world's tallest building in the world until 1972 when the World Trade Center opened. Voted one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Empire Stat Building is an Art Deco skyscraper and is considered the symbol of American skyscrapers. This golden LEGO model, co-developed and designed by Adam Reed Tucker, celebrates the early age of skyscraper design.

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.
