Love Lego? You'll Love The Lego Christmas Sets!


As a lifelong fan of Lego and a mother of two Lego loving boys, I really enjoy seeing the Lego Christmas sets, like this toy shop set. This set is a Lego Creator set called Winter Toy Shop and is set number 10199. It has 815 pieces and includes a toy shop filled with toys, 7 minifigures and a Lego brick that lights up.

It is my understanding that Lego releases these kits in a somewhat limited manner, which is unfortunate because it means that they quickly become more expensive than the original list price.  If you are going to start a collection, I recommend that you make sure you buy them as they are released and not after they have had a chance to become sought after collector's items.

Meanwhile, to add the sets you don't already own to your collection, you can check out the toy shop,  holiday bakery and winter village post office on Amazon by clicking on the appropriate link. You will also enjoy visiting the large selection of Lego Christmas themed sets gathered together on this page. I recommend you consider shopping off season when the prices might be a bit lower, although I would never expect to find a true bargain on one of these fantastic holiday themed Lego sets.

Merry Christmas!
Brenda

Baldwin Red Tricycle Christmas Tree Ornament


We have three sons so our Christmas tree always reflected that. Over the years we collected such ornaments as building blocks, sleds, trucks, bicycles, and strings of lights in the shape of red drums. Our boys are all grown up now, but when I saw this red tricycle ornament I knew it was something I would have purchased for our tree. We had a red tricycle that our boys all enjoyed, and this ornament reminded me of that. This beautiful little tricycle is solid brass and finished with 24 karat gold. Each piece is hand assembled and packaged in a beautiful box. It is a keepsake item, suitable for collecting or gift giving, and can be passed on to your son or daughter when they establish their own family. You will enjoy seeing this memento of childhood on your tree. Click on this link to purchase a red tricycle ornament from Amazon at a 20% discount: Baldwin Red Tricycle Ornament

Christmas Cuckoo Clock

Cuckoo Clock North Pole

From Mark Feldstein & Associates, this adorable little cuckoo clock will add joy to your Christmas holidays.  The clock includes a group of elves helping Santing get ready for Christmas.  When the clock strikes the hour, an elf pops out with a present - and one of 12 available Christmas carols is heard. At nighttime, a light sensor deactivates carols allowing our Elf friend (and you) to catch some sleep.
And at night, the cuckoo is operated by a light sensor, so everybody gets a good night's sleep.

This is a Christmas tradition the entire family will enjoy - and so will your guests!
