Holiday Gift Ideas 3: A cosy way to build bonds with loved ones, literally
LEGO 10293 Santa's Visit
It’s Christmas time, and if you're looking to bring on the festive atmosphere with full-force, chances are you'll be looking to fill as much space on the shelf as you can. So, why not take that chance to do something therapeutic and gratifying as well, or to spend some bonding time with your family.
The LEGO 10293 Santa’s Visit set is one way to put in some elbow grease for the Christmas spirit. The 1,445-piece set pitches itself as a rewarding set for adults, with mini-builds to keep the children occupied, despite the lowest recommended age of 18. These include a Christmas tree, an actual tree with the birdhouse, and outdoor fencing, so even though the piece count isn't impressive, it still has enough for the whole family to take part in.
The set also features little details such as a Santa-sized chimney for dropping him down, with little cookies-and-milk bricks ready by the fireside, a brick with a built-in LED for putting atop the Christmas tree (the LED of which lights up with a gentle press), and a roof that opens outwards, allowing you to peek inside the attic.
This is to say nothing of the set as a whole, the centrepiece of which is a snow-covered house complete with festive adornments, so even if Singapore will never have a snow day, you can always live out that fantasy with this set. There's also the aforementioned Christmas tree, and four minifigures, which, with all the furniture pieces the set provides, gives you the chance to build a comfy Christmas scene of your choice.
The set is available on brickworks.com for S$149.90. The house alone measures 190 x 270 x 160mm, so take note that you'll likely have to reserve a bit of space for the entire set on whatever shelf, cabinet or tabletop you might end up putting this on.
