It’s hard for me to resist the seasonal sets that LEGO® puts out. Though I’m not much of a Christmas celebrator myself, I couldn’t pass up the pair of vignettes that they released for the holiday. This week, we’ll tear into the first one (based on set number): 40262 Christmas Train Ride. Continue reading 40262 Christmas Train Ride
I was at my local LEGO® store this last weekend for a birthday party and I spied stacks of seasonal sets. I’d already missed the Halloween set, so I wasn’t going to leave without at least one of each. Lets start out with this years Thanksgiving set.
I’ve really enjoyed this year’s slate of seasonal sets. There have been some that felt a bit lack luster (I’m looking at you Halloween!), but this one just looks like it was phoned in. Maybe LEGO really wanted to have an even six seasonal sets, but this one isn’t even tied to a holiday! Continue reading 40124 Winter Fun
I’m a little late the post on this one, but I finally put together the seasonal set for the impending holiday. Looks like a nice Thanksgiving dinner with the grandparents. Continue reading 40123 Thanksgiving Feast
I’ve been very happy with this year’s seasonal LEGO sets. This run of 8×8 vignettes have been great sets full of interesting elements. At first glance, Halloween looks good too. Continue reading 40122 Trick or Treat
I’m a little bit in love with the 8×8 vignettes that Lego is putting out for this year’s seasonal sets. I saw a picture of the Easter set in the back of the instructions for the Valentine’s Day set and I had to have it. Sadly every visit to the Lego Store came up empty. They were selling out as fast as they arrived. I finally decided to buy online from shop.lego.com, but they were sold out too. I must admit that I had given up until I walked into the store last week to find a whole shelf of them. I bought four without hesitation. Continue reading 40121 Painting Easter Eggs
This year’s seasonal sets are a nice departure from the cute animals sets that Lego produced last year. Each set is an 8×8 vignette with a pair of minifigures in an appropriate setting. Kicking off the line is this interestingly mature Valentine’s Day Dinner.
My latest seasonal set purchase is this cute little turkey. I’ve enjoyed the bat that I built for Halloween, so I picked up this handsome gobbler a couple of weeks ago. Our family tradition tends toward a meatless Thanksgiving feast of side dishes, so this turkey might make an adorable centerpiece. Continue reading 40091 Thanksgiving Turkey
I love these little seasonal sets that Lego puts out. They’re always displayed near the registers in the Lego stores and I have to practice some restraint to not toss one onto the pile every time we go. This cute little bat and his pumpkin were a bit too much to resist.
