LEGO 41040: Friends, 60063: City, 75056: Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar, Day Seventeen Review.

Day 17... hmmm.. There are only 7 more days left in our Advent Calendars. Just 7!

The kids have now transitioned into holiday mode now because it is getting more difficult to wake them up in the mornings... Just 2 weeks ago they were eager to open their Calendars... but now, umm... Not so much. Even Jaspa who is usually the first to wake up in our house is now the last one to get out of bed atm. I think we will will have some issues getting him up and ready in his first year of school starting in late Janauary lol. Wish us luck! :-D

Finally! After enjoying their dessert yesterday it looks like Mia and Ewa are now moving into the lounge room! Chloe was over the moon to get this pretty interesting fireplace build (compared to pretty much everything in this Calender). She was happy to have something more challenging to build rather then "always just adding accessories everyday" (her words not mine).  18 pieces are used to build the fireplace.



Behind door number 17 I got a trailer attachment to go with yesterdays Police snowmobile. At the back of the trailer is a Yellow storage section that could possibly store some future gifts in it... maybe? I would have preferred if they stuck with the blue and white colour scheme, after all the 1 x 1 x 1 Corner piece became available this year in two sets. Nothing complicated about today's build, but you can still have fun taking the kids for a ride.


 We are still on the planet Hoth and today Jaspa got to build a mini turret (it's technical name is a DF.9  anti-infantry battery) Jaspa looked confused by today's gift and to be honest, it had me wondering for a moment what it was too. But it finally dawned on me.
 Just like we saw in Day 7 this mini build uses the new "Stud firing" blaster on the top of the turret and shoots "snow balls" again rather then live ammunition. You get a few different sized White slope pieces to replicate a snow trench and a few 1 x 1 round plates to shoot with (and lose).

Spares for today.

Well, that's it for Day 17 of the Advent Calendar reviews. Thank you for dropping by and please check in again with us tomorrow to see what little goodies we get to build. :-)

Tan Tile signing out! See you all again tomorrow.
