The most thrilling part of the set is that Santa Claus can be delivered down the chimney, arriving in the house through the fireplace. He’ll find a drink and cookie waiting for him along with stockings to stuff.
Father Christmas has had an update this year, with the new edition of the minifigure featuring fresh printing and boots (for the first time). There’s also a light-up Christmas tree, another first!
‘The holiday season is always a magical time for my family,’ says Model Designer Chris McVeigh. ‘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.’
