Happy National Skyscraper Day! When my kids were growing up, we had so many Lego and other building sets around the house, but one thing we didn’t have any of were skyscraper building sets. For my son, it was mostly castle and Star Wars. My daughter liked whatever he liked. I think the dawn of the skyscraper building sets came a bit too late for us, but for you or your special someone, I have very good news. There are lots of building sets out there for you to pick from. Whether you’re looking for little ones or adults, there is something for everyone!

I’ve never put together any Nanoblock sets, but they have fantastic reviews over on Amazon. This Empire State building kit comes with over 700 pieces and will end up standing 8 inches tall, making it perfect for a bookshelf or dresser top to be displayed in your special someone’s house. The bricks are small, making it great for ages 8 and up.

I’m not sure this is technically a skyscraper, but this Eiffel Tower set was just to pretty to leave out. I absolutely love the finished shape of the piece and how it angles up. This is a promise of hours and hours of fun because it has 3369 microbricks (which are smaller than Lego). The finished height is over 16 inches tall. A great choice when it comes to skyscraper building sets!
