Have you seen these MONUmini Architectural Models by Another Studio? Whether you’re fond of London’s landmarks or not, the tiny models are pretty detailed, and any one of them could make a great gift for someone who has a soft spot for England’s capital. Each kit has a sheet of etched stainless steel pieces (you fold and lock together), step-by-step assembly instructions and a short building history, all of which is held in an envelope that can be mailed as a souvenir or gift. Battersea Station and Tower Bridge are available from A+R ($28 each); those two plus the Post Office Tower (aka the BT Tower) and Barbican Tower are available straight from Another Studio (£ 15.00 each).
Also, keep in mind that these models have sharp edges and aren’t suitable for young children.
