Just in time for the festive season, LEGO released this Creator Gingerbread House. I received this set for my birthday and I was excited to start building it!
Book 1 contains all the wrapped gifts and toys. These are small enough for the minifigures to enjoy. The gifts and toys consist of a rocking horse, four wrapped gifts, and a toy train. There is also a detailed Christmas tree with a lovely star at top of the tree.
Book 2 contains the Gingerbread House. I really enjoyed building the house because of all the lovely details inside and outside of the house. A few interesting things that stood out in the build were the gingerbread baby, the frosted candy-like roof. The interior has amazing coloured glitter 1×1 bricks, which really come to life when there is light shining through them. The upstairs section has a cosy room with a cute bath and toilet. The downstairs section has a cosy kitchen and lounge area complete with a fire-place with a light brick, comfortable sofa and kitchenette.
This set is definitely a favourite of mines. I was just a little disappointed because the set was smaller than I anticipated.
I also had a lot of spare pieces left over. From the official pictures, there was no red plate 1×1 on the door, however I put these on the door and it suited the theme perfectly.
Get it while you still can!
