Great with Santa’s Visit!
I would recommend this to a friend!This set is really cool and a bit large, but it looks great it’s not super easy to be able to fly it around but it’s still possible. It has an “okay” amount of detail as it is not 18+, it is a child’s set being ages 9+. It is really cool to be able to get a teddy bear and reindeer. The Santa figure does not seem to look “happy” but a little grumpy. Would have been nice the get the happy head from “Santa’s Visit”. The Nice List is a printed brick which is amazing! Overall it is a pretty good set to play with or put on display!Play Experience4.0Building Experience4.0Value for Money5.0

I would recommend this to a friend!Neat addition to any Christmas village or scene. Thank you for putting out more reindeer and a nice playable sleigh. I bought two sets and had one reindeer from the Elf Club House to complete Santa’s reindeer team. I attached translucent red PLATE 1X1 ROUND for Rudolph’s nose with modeling clay. Love it!Play Experience4.0Building Experience5.0Value for Money5.0

Angry-face SantaIt's hard to get away from the angry face on the Santa mini figure, but I can understand his disappointment. This sleigh could have been so much better, but it's mostly a big red blob with very little detail or color variation, almost as if the set was slapped together to meet a deadline. It looks okay head-on, but viewed from the side it has the shape and monotony of a bright red sack. The runners on the bottom are just sort of tucked on, and a few gold trim pieces are mounted here and there so it isn't completely flat. I would have liked to have seen some other colors at the least, perhaps more gold edging or green accents, fancier runners certainly, and a more jolly looking Santa face. The overall look is incomplete and obnoxiously red.Play Experience4.0Building Experience4.0Value for Money3.0

Need to buy two
I would recommend this to a friend!Overall, this is a great Christmas themed set as it is the first to really focus entirely on the reindeer and sleigh setup. With the molded deer, this works really well. I have read the reviews insisting that 2 sets are needed for 8 reindeer and I must concur. I would not recommend Bricks and Pieces because you also need the bricks for the harnesses as well as the nougat fillers. There are also stickers that go with the reindeer. By the time you order what you need separately, you might as well have bought another set anyway. There is one complaint: the instruction book and sticker sheet was both crumpled in the box. I wish a little bit more care was taken in the packaging to ensure a manual and sticker sheet in good condition. Besides adding four more reindeer, I made one more modification that you might spot in the photo. It is a good set, and will hopefully come back in stock for those who really want to enhance a Christmas display.November 26, 2021Jane, LEGO® Customer ServiceWe're sorry about the damaged instructions and stickers in your set.
