This is another polybag set. Dad and daughter setting up their Christmas Tree
Back of the bag with warnings and where the elements are made.
When you open the polybag the larger pieces are loose and the smaller ones are in a bag. You also get foldout instructions.
All the pieces lined up ready to build. A ton of 1x1 round plates/studs.
Just a quick look at the foldout instructions.
The Dad Minifigure has a single side face print and a single sided torso print. He also has Dark Red pants.
The Daughter has a cute freckle face print and a double side torso print.
A Step by step look at the building of the Christmas tree.
Once the tree is done you get to build some presents and a blue train. I totally dig the train!
Here are the spares you get with this set.
This was a quick build, but a really fun one. The tree is nicely designed although the grey pieces could have been done in brown to give you the look of branches... maybe next time. The ladder is nicely done too. It was difficult to get the Dad to stay on, because his (or anyone's) feet are slightly wider then the inside of the fence piece that is used to make the ladder.. Now the mini train, for me is a winner! I can see myself building a ton of these in different colors :-)
You get plenty of pressies to fill out the bottom of the Christmas tree. It gives you a little warm fuzzy feeling of how Christmas mornings used to looked like when you were a kid.
Thanks again for reading and I hope you enjoyed this quick review!
