Both adults and children would enjoy MUJI's New York in a Bag which comes with eight wooden city structures and six wooden cars. Included are New York City icons such as MoMA's original 1939 building, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Statue of Liberty, and the Guggenheim Museum. With a kit from Matchitecture, you can construct an Eiffel Tower, Matchitecture , the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building and more. Haba is making some wooden blocks for kids in shapes such as a Coliseum Set, Haba Russian House and a Haba Mayan Temple. Lego is making replicas of famous buildings including: Lego Architecture Series Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, Lego Architecture Series Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Lego Architecture Series Seattle Space Needle and more. Here’s info about other architectural games. Do you know of other architectural toys? If so, send me the information and I can add it to this gift guide post.
