Construction of The Leaning Tower of Pisa started in 1174, but was not completed until the 14th century. But use the 216 high quality plastic puzzle pieces contained in this set, and construction can be completed in no time at all! You can either assemble your building “by eye” (using the printed design representing the carved stonework), or you may prefer to refer to the reference numbers printed on the reverse side of the pieces. Put the pieces together in sequence and see this amazing bell tower appear before your eyes (it even "leans" like the original!). This would make an excellent pastime or gift for someone interested in architecture or tourism, a lovely memento of a visit to Pisa and may appeal to traditional puzzle fans after a new challenge. We reckon it might just appeal to those who enjoy model railways too … a really unusual way to introduce substantial international 3D buildings to an existing set up. Comes with a baseboard for display.

Unlike the Big Ben and Eiffel Tower models, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has no hinged pieces, and is made up entirely of curved pieces. It's a lot easier to put together, maybe the easiest of the set, but it is also the one that works best as a traditional jigsaw - i.e. judging what goes where by the pattern rather than by the numbers on the back of the pieces.
I've read a couple of reviews of models in this series that complain about the numbers on the back of the pieces, as if that somehow makes it less of a puzzle. To my mind, the numbering actually increases the challenge as there are a number of pieces that are identically shaped and could fit in a few different places, so making sure it all fits together in the right order takes longer and is therefore a way of increasing the value for money.
It also has in its favour the best stand of the landmarks series - rather than tabs that are too small to hold the model securely on a cardboard base, you build it around a sturdy plastic base, and it's not going to fall over at the slightest knock, as the others are prone to.
The plastic pieces all fit together so well that once assembled it is absolutely smooth and works well as a traditional model for displaying.
Great fun and looks great!
