LEGO designers really outdid themselves with the #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House, the latest set in the LEGO Winter Village series. It’s cute, festive, funny, full of lovely parts and colors, and it really captures the spirit of the holidays. 🙂

And if that was not enough, LEGO is currently offering a mini version of the set, free with purchases of $99 or more. The exclusive #40337 LEGO Mini Gingerbread House recreates the shape, and many of the features of the full size set, including the four snow covered peaked roofs, the candy cane framed doors and windows, the chimney with fireplace, the colorful stained-glass windows, and all the candy elements.

The LEGO Winter Village sets are always highly anticipated this time of the year, as people would like to add something new to their Winter Village display. In fact, the theme has been going on for 10 years now, and those who have been collecting them from the very beginning will have a substantial display by now. Many LEGO fans also add other holiday sets to their display as well, like the Mini Gingerbread House. If you don’t have the #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House already, I have included JANGBRiCKS review below for your viewing pleasure. It really is a lovely set.

And here is the official description of the set: Gather the family and build the wonderful Gingerbread House! Enjoy a festive build and play experience with the #10267 LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House. A treasure chest of magical details, this amazing model features frosted roofs with colorful candy buttons and a delicious façade with candy-cane columns, glittery windows and a tall chimney stack with a glowing fireplace. Inside the house, there is an array of fun details and candy furnishings including a tasteful bedroom with chocolate bed and cotton candy lamp, and a bathroom with the essential toilet and bathtub. This wonderful LEGO Gingerbread House sets the scene for imaginative adventures with the gingerbread family. Children can light up the cozy fireplace, help clear the sidewalk with the snow blower and nestle the gingerbread baby in its carriage. It also includes a decorated Christmas tree with wrapped gifts and toys, including a rocking horse and a toy train. This advanced LEGO set delivers a challenging and rewarding building experience and makes a great seasonal centerpiece for the home or office. Includes gingerbread man, woman and baby figures. 1,477 pieces. Price: $99.99 – BUY HERE

If you’re new to the LEGO Winter Village collection, please note that the #10263 LEGO Winter Village Fire Station from last year is also still available. The #10254 LEGO Winter Holiday Train from two years ago just sold out and is now shown as retired, but you may still be able to find it at retailers. See the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

A nice thing about the LEGO Winter Village sets is that you can tie them together with your own landscaping. You can add extra trees, snow hills, frozen ponds, little concession stands for selling all kinds of snacks. And populate the entire scene with your own minifigures, animals, vehicles, etc. The entire family can participate in adding a little something to display. It’s a fun activity for both adults and children. There is even a Fans of LEGO Winter Village Facebook Group with some fantastic layouts. And we already talked about the two volumes of the Expanding the LEGO Winter Village Books with additional creative ideas.

What do you think? Do you have any of the LEGO Winter Village sets? Do you set up your LEGO Winter Village for the holidays? Feel free to share your own displays or other people’s designs that you really like in the comment section below! 😉

LEGO Ideas vintage car coming & more!

by admin on December 12, 2019

in Community News

As you may remember from our previous discussion (see links at the end of this post), LEGO recently ran a contest challenging LEGO fans to design a vintage car that would fit with the LEGO Modular Buildings. There were a great number of entries, and after the judges narrowed them down to fifteen, the fan community had a chance to vote for their favorite. The grand prize winner will receive a large number of awesome LEGO sets, and also get the opportunity to have their model turned into the next official LEGO gift-with-purchase set. Five runner-up winners are also going to receive some goodies as mentioned in the contest details. 🙂

Yesterday, LEGO announced that from the fifteen finalists, the grand prize winner is Aedelsten Deluxe by Versteinert with 1,449 fan votes. Congratulations to the winner! Their model is fantastic, and I can’t wait to see it becoming an official LEGO set! (You can read the full announcement, along with the list of runner-up winners here.)

Although there is only one model from all the entries that will be turned into an official LEGO set, if you like vintage cars, you might want to check out the other entries as well for inspiration. There are vintage delivery trucks including a milk truck, ice cream truck, and even a LEGO delivery truck, as well as classic style police cars, roadsters, pickups, convertibles, and more. Their styles and designs can you ideas for building your own classic cars for your city layout. You can find the contest entries here.

Several of the LEGO Modular Buildings come with classic style vehicles as well, so even if you don’t have them, you can download the set instructions and use them to build your own classic cars. The #10197 LEGO Creator Fire Brigade has a very nice 1930s style fire truck, the #10232 LEGO Creator Palace Cinema includes a fancy black limousine, the #10260 LEGO Creator Downtown Diner features a stylish pink convertible, and the #10264 LEGO Creator Corner Garage comes with a classic tow truck. The LEGO Winter Village collection is another great source of classic style vehicles, including a vintage mail truck, snow plough, bus, fire truck, and even a steam-powered train. So check them out, and happy building!

What do you think? How do you like the winning model of the contest? Did you participate either by entering your own car or by voting? Which one of the other entries do you like and would like to build? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
