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

Welcome back for Day 23!

Only one more day to go and we are done for the calendar reviews!

Hopefully by now you are all set for the big day and you have all your Christmas Shopping done. Lets face it, the shopping centers will be jam packed!

Lego aisles will be low on stock and all those sets that were sold will be ready and waiting under millions of Trees. All for that moment when the boys and girls (young, middle aged and old) from around the world wake up on Christmas morning, eager to rip apart the wrapping and start building and having fun!

I simply can not wait! Can you imagine how excited our kids are too? Lol

So what awesome gifts did we get today?

This morning it was Chloe's turn to get a Christmas Tree. And such a lovely tree it is! When I woke up this morning, the first thing Chloe did was come racing up to me, extremely happy to have gotten this Christmas tree. I was surprised to find out through Bricklink that the Green Slope 75 2 x 2 x 2 Quadruple Convex has only been in 7 sets in the past 12 years ( and 2 came in this years Advent set alone) so its a very uncommon piece. I should have realised it back on Day 4 when we first saw the piece that came with the Deer (better late then never). The tree topper is a 1 x 1 Jewel Heart Rock in Trans Pink and it was a new piece for 2014 and only seen in the Disney Princess Theme.

Just the one spare.


This morning I got the groovy trike bike/tricycle ! Its a simple build using very few parts. The front wheel holder is normally only seen on flying vehicles like planes or helicopters so it's cool to see it on a ground vehicle. The tricycle zooms around pretty smoothly too. It's a great gift and it soooo reminds my of my sons "Radio Flyer" he got 2 years ago... I really like today's gift! 


Jaspa got something a little more seasonal then Star Warsie < is that even a word?... Anyway what he built was a fireplace. On each side of the fireplace was a Lightsaber (a Blue one and a Red one) and sitting on the top of the mantle is what I believe to be a Jedi Holocron, just like the one seen in 75018: JEK-14's Stealth Starfighter.
All Jaspa cared about were the Lightsabers. He was happy to know Luke got his Lightsaber and Jaspa knows that tomorrow is the last day to open a door, so the Red Lightsaber will be for... you will have to wait and see ;-P


Only 2 more sleeps to go!!

Well, that's it for Day 23 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.
