Construct your own 3D replica of the U.S Capitol Building.
The United States Capitol Hill is among the most symbolic important and architecturally impressive buildings in the nation. It is both literally and figuratively the center of the city. Not only are the geographic quadrants of the city centered on the Capitol Building, but the true pulse of day-to-day Washington in large measure derives from the Congressional activities that transpire under its majestic dome. Completed puzzle measures 16.34 x 7 x 13.9 inches.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
My rating of 3D Puzzle US Capitol Building - 132 pcs

This is a great representation of the capital building. The pieces are smaller than I thought and do need more than two hands to put together some of the pieces. It is awesome for my son to bring to school for his presentation.

This is my second capitol model. The first one made it through 4 years and over 450 Jr. High students. I use this model in my 7th grade history class and student's no. 1 question is "Where can I get one?" followed by "How did you put this together?" It has been a great visual for teaching the 3 branches and explaining the difference between the Senate and the House of Representatives. This fall we will be adding the White House model and then I sure wish there was a puzzle for the Supreme Court....One suggestion to extend the life of the puzzle, try mounting it to a foam core base for support.
3D Puzzle - Capitol Hill - 132 pcs

The puzzle was purchased for a school project for my 3rd grader. We absolutely loved it. A friend suggested that each piece be taken out 1 at a time and start putting it together. As she was doing that she was crossing out each piece on the instructions. The pieces are not labeled so if you put it in the wrong spot, it will fit but not properly.
My daughter loved putting it together. I had a bit of a challenge and realized that there is no reason to cut anything (which I did) and felt terrible. Luckily it was inside so you can't see it. My suggestion would be to label the inside of the pieces in case there is no adult supervision. What can I say!!! It is a great product that my daughter loved and was able to assemble. She needed adult supervision at times but she put the puzzle together and it's fantastic! I'm definitely keeping your information for the next project. In all the years that I have been helping my daughters with school projects this one has been my favorite.
