I'm the first to admit it's a bit pricey, but then it's no toy either. And certainly no LEGO; that company's own version of the Leaning Tower is childish indeed. The warning "Not suitable for childeren 36 months or earlier" is a joke; I would recommend it for the age group of at least 10-12 years old. It taxes your ingenuity and patience, but the result is very satisfying with a rather clever interlocking system. When finished, it stands rather sturdy and can even survive a (gentle) knock-over ;-). It's no put-it-together-in-a-jiffy either; as a 66-year old I needed about 3 hours, the excellent manual nothwithstanding. And yes, the full model leans about 48 centimeters or 19" high ;-)

I also recommend the use of about 30 paper cups or other holders to sort the different parts beforehand; you don't want to grabble from an unsorted heap of pieces. Trust me on that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Kit at a Great Price 27 Mar. 2015
By Jeremy M. Hanna - Published on Amazon.com
First things first. This kit is amazing for the price. It contains 1392 pieces and comes in at just under 20 inches tall. It is nicely detailed, solidly designed, and the pieces are Lego compatible. It doesn’t go together quite as smoothly as Lego, but it’s fine. Trust me, I know. I’ve been building with Lego since the early 1970’s. The build is enjoyable, the instructions are readable and, by and large, the pieces fit together well. Mine cost $52.00 including shipping. Good luck getting a 1392 piece Lego kit for $52.00. Maybe you can rummage one up at a yard sale.

In purchasing and building this set, one thing became crystal clear to me. As far as its architectural line is concerned, Lego simply isn’t competitive. With a few exceptions, Lego isn’t competing on kit size and where it does compete, the prices are far too high. Lego knows this and is using slick packaging and a minimalist design aesthetic to cover for the fact that it’s just not willing to come off of its 8 to 11 cent per piece price formula. (As a specific example, take a look at Lego’s Leaning Tower of Pisa set. Compared to the Wange set, it’s really not worth bothering with.) It’s true that, overall, Lego is still a superior product, but in my experience with different building systems, that superiority should equate to a 125% to 150% price premium. It definitely does not equate to the 250% to 300% price premium that Lego regularly charges. Lego’s competitors are growing fast and getting better by the day. My bet is that Lego is in for a hard fight going forward. For all practical purposes, I’ve moved on. The last four sets that I’ve bought are from Lego’s competitors (Wange and Nanoblocks).

By the way, even though the box says that this kit is for children ages 6 and up, it is clearly not a kit for young children. Just as Lego’s architectural series is aimed at teens and adults, so too is this one. The instructions could be better, but they are acceptable. If you find them difficult, it simply means that you are not used to building models at this level of complexity and need some practice with simpler models first. For those of you who like a longer build and have some experience with these kinds of kits, this one is great fun!

P.S. The tower leans the right way. The image on the box has been reversed. In fact, you can make the tower lean anyway you want it to.

A good model spoilt by somebody's carelessness. Eight missing parts.inexcusible.
Fortunately i was able to order lego parts as they werent Wange specific. The model now sits gathering dust waiting to be completed. No more Wange for me.
3.0 out of 5 stars Building Block Substitute 28 Jan. 2014
By Leslie Koorhan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is an okay set. I could easily tell that this set does not have the same quality of construction design that Lego sets have. It was fun to put together but there were moments when I could see how the Lego people would have done it differently. Since there is no comparably sized version of this in the Lego catalog, then this is a decent substitute for those who like to build large set buildings, such as the Taj Mahal or Tower Bridge.
5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible detail and terrific value 11 Jun. 2016
By Wai Kiu Lee - Published on Amazon.com

Great set and excellent value. Got this set for my son, who just graduated Kindergarten. He's a bit of a masterbuilder. He only need me the explain the instructions once, and was able to build the set himself. He was so excited. Love the detail. Definitely a fan of the Wange set, and will be sure to buy more. The pieces are completely compatible with Legos, but at a fraction of the cost. No missing pieces with my set.
5.0 out of 5 stars Architecture building kit is huge and challenging 31 July 2016
By Carol - Published on Amazon.com
This Leaning Tower of Pisa toy is a huge building kit on the order of Legos architecture kits. My oldest grandson has always loved Legos and this is a great kit for him. It is Legos compatible and is challenging with 1392 pieces. The major factor convincing me to get this kit for him, I admit, was the price. I have purchased Legos kits for him that were over $100, just too much for me to justify most of the time. This kit, however, costs much less and appears to me to be so much like Legos it is nearly impossible to tell the difference. If there is a difference, my grandson will find it, but I do not think it could be anything major. This kit will give me the opportunity to do a little history with him, which will also probably count towards his home school curriculum. This style of building kit is so popular and I am pleased to be able to buy one without breaking the bank. I received this product at a discount for an honest review.
