Although it is a bit early to talk about Christmas LEGO sets, I thought to let you know about the newest addition to the LEGO Winter Village Series early, as these sets tend to disappear real fast. 😉
LEGO has started the tradition of releasing one Christmas LEGO set every year for the holidays. In 2009 we got the #10199 LEGO Winter Toy Shop, in 2010 the #10216 LEGO Winter Village Bakery, and in 2011 the #10222 LEGO Winter Village Post Office. And this year we get the #10229 LEGO Winter Village Cottage – the largest of the LEGO Christmas sets. A beautiful and worthy addition to the LEGO Winter Village series!
The official description of the LEGO Winter Village Cottage: Get cozy in the Winter Village Cottage! Continuing the LEGO Winter Series, build the Winter Village Cottage for a perfect holiday home. Seat Grandpa snugly by the fireplace with his newspaper as you help Dad to put up the tree, then bake a feast in the kitchen with Mom! When it’s time to stock up the storage shed with firewood, bring the kids for a ride with Dad on the sled watch him cut the wood with his chainsaw deep in the forest. When the snow gets really deep, clear the road with the snow-plow, take all of the kids skiing or build an igloo to play in. There’s no cozier place to spend long, frosty nights!

And here is a great video LEGO designer Jamie Berard introducing the new Christmas LEGO set with all of its sweet details:
The LEGO Winter Village Cottage is currently available at the Online LEGO Shop. Please note that this is a LEGO exclusive set, meaning it is only going to be available directly from LEGO. If you are planning to get one I suggest you do it now, before it runs out. Also, if you are missing the previous Winter Village sets you are in luck because LEGO just re-added the #10216 LEGO Winter Village Bakery and the #10222 LEGO Winter Village Post Office. You can find all three sets here: BUY WINTER VILLAGE SETS
