3D Eiffel Tower Puzzle

Price: $10.00

How can you resist your very own Eiffel Tower? The tallest building in Paris, an international icon, the world's most visted paid monument--you need this 3D puzzle replica of the very famous, very French tower. Quick history of what will soon be on your coffee table: the 320-meter-high iron tower, completed in 1889, was built as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair. Now a beloved symbol of Paris, before its construction there was quite a bit of protest including from the arts establishment. A petition by hundreds of prominent members of the arts community read in part: "We, writers, painters, sculptors, architects and passionate devotees of the hitherto untouched beauty of Paris, protest with all our strength, with all our indigation in the name of slighted Franch taste, against the erection...of this useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower..."
 
There you have it. Or you can, once you purchase this replica of slighted French taste, now one of the most loved structures in the world...and if you're at all concerned about the age appropriateness of this item, this is one of those ageless activities (note, we're not calling it a toy) that engages people of all ages, from your six-year-old nephew to your ninety-year-old neighbor. The thirty-five pieces are punched out of heavy cardboard, are easy to assemble, and no glue is required.
