Reindeer Games

Santa’s Sleigh is a lovely build and is sure to be a hit with collectors. Just getting 4 reindeer alone makes this a very desirable set. The animal mold is wonderful and was first included in the Elf Club House (10275) set released in 2020. If you have that set and manage to snag 2 of these sets, you’ve got a full roster of magical reindeer! The Sleigh build itself is a lovely classic design with great gold elements. They are the perfect accents to the classic interpretation of what many imagine Santa’s sleigh to look like. It is chock full of great accessories including skis, a guitar, teddy bear and 8 ‘wrapped’ gifts. Santa’s Nice List is also included – if you’re name is on there, double win!

On The List?

What do you guys think? Are those reindeer enough to get you hitting ‘buy’ immediately? Are you thinking of picking up both sets for the perfect winter village set up? If you’re a big Christmas collector, how many Santa minifigures will this make? Please comment below and as always, keep on brickin’.
