Count Down to Christmas LEGO Advent Calendar Style!

Many LEGO fans are now counting down the days to Christmas with the LEGO Advent Calendar sets. As you probably know already, these sets have little windows for each day of December with pieces for a small build inside. This year, we got five LEGO Advent Calendar sets from various LEGO themes: the #60381 LEGO City Advent Calendar for $34.99, the #41758 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar for $34.99, the #76418 LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar for $44.99, the #76267 LEGO Marvel Avengers Advent Calendar for $44.99, and the #75366 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for $44.99. You can find them all at the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Some LEGO fans liked building one LEGO set a day leading up to Christmas, but they wanted something more substantial than the small builds in the LEGO Advent Calendars. For example, the #21330 LEGO Ideas Home Alone set comes with 24 bags, and it’s even Christmas-themed, so it’s perfect for such a project.

LEGO fan tj.bricky compiled a list of sets that come with 24 bags (or something close to it) for those who would like to build a larger set during the Holidays. Take a look at the list below.







If you’re up for a bigger challenge, the following large sets will let you work on about 2 bags a day during December leading up to Christmas. The #10316 LEGO Lord of the Rings Rivendell set comes with 49 bags, the #75367 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Venator comes with 48 bags, the #10294 LEGO Icons Titanic comes with 46 bags, the #76405 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Collectors Edition comes with 45 bags, and for the biggest challenge, the #10307 LEGO Icons Eiffel Tower comes with 74 bags or just about 3 bags per day.

Besides being a festive occasion, building large LEGO sets one bag at a time lets you savor the experience without getting fatigued. What do you think? Have you considered building larger LEGO sets one bag at a time during the holidays? Are there any other LEGO sets you can think of that would work well for the occasion?

    Ha! Great idea! It’s a little late for me to start now, but I might do this next year. Is there a place that list how many bags come in a set?

      Isn’t brickset has something like that? Or bricklink?

        I think there were talks of doing that, but it was discarded as too complicated and unreliable. How sets are packaged often change from batch to batch or region to region.

    This us great, but these are all very big sets that not everyone can afford. And sets often have more than one of each numbered bag. So you could still do this with smaller sets building one bag – and not one number – per day. .

      Yes, but where do you find that info?

    My family builds the winter village sets this way. The bags are not exact, but we just find good stopping points.

    I considered buying the Marvel Advent Calendar this year, but in the end, I decided against it, since judging from the available information online, it didn’t feel like particularly good value. I might buy the christmas sweater minifig variants separately next year…
