Yesterday we inadvertently had our first glimpse of this set but today sees LEGO officially announce it, the newest addition to its Winter Village, Santa’s Visit (10293)!
The set will expand on to the already popular series of Winter Village and Christmas themed sets already out. It will consist of 1,445 pieces and retail for £79.99 / $99.99.
It will be available from 16th September for VIPs and 1st October for the general public, just in time for the holidays. If you’re a fan of thos theme then I would recommend getting it as soon as possible as stocks may be low nearer Christmas and the big day.
It’s quite a substantial size too measuring 19cm tall, 27cm wide, and 16cm deep. It also features some impressive rooms sets with a family dinning table, kitchen, fireplace, child’s bedroom. Outside you’ll find a fence side build and a Christmas tree.
The blue house actually looks pretty decent and works in that colour very well, along with the slanted snow-covered roof tops and green foliage drapped here and there.
Please let us know in the comments below what yor first impressions are of this new LEGO Winter Village Santa’s Visit (10293) set.
Spread holiday cheer with the LEGO® Santa’s Visit set
The LEGO Group is ushering in the festive season with the reveal of its LEGO Santa’s Visit (10293) set, the latest addition to the Winter Village collection.
The charming new LEGO Santa’s Visit set is ready to welcome Santa and his reindeer, and sure to bring to life the special excitement felt during the holiday season. The design centers on a cosy little house, where a family are busily getting ready for Santa’s arrival. Cards are collected from the mailbox; gifts have been wrapped and treats have been put out in anticipation of the most exciting time of the year. Once the build is complete, all Santa needs to do is drop down the chimney to spread some Christmas cheer!
Santa’s Visit offers a new, novelty building experience for the whole family. It forms part of the popular Winter Village collection, which includes the LEGO Gingerbread House (10267) and LEGO Elf’s Cub House (10275).
The set is bursting with tiny details, such as a fireplace with stockings, a chimney (with enough space for Santa to slide down through), a child’s bedroom, a detailed kitchen with decorated dinner table, milk and cookies to leave out for Santa, and a comfy chair for him to curl up in.
It also features Winter Village’s first illuminated Christmas Tree! Just press down on the top of the tree to trigger the light brick hidden inside. The house is also decorated with boughs of holly and includes a snowy gate with mailbox. At the back, a roof panel articulates outwards for easier access to the upstairs bedroom.
Chris McVeigh, LEGO Set Designer commented: “The holiday season is always a magical time for my family. It’s been fun to inject a few of my own family traditions and experiences into this set from the new Christmas cookie to the hidden gifts.”
LEGO Santa’s Visit set is available exclusively for LEGO VIP members from 16th September and from LEGO Stores and www.lego.com/christmas from 1st October 2021.
