One of my favorite Christmas Collections got started in the 80's.
Being the Lego-maniacs that we are, it was only natural that I would start collecting the little Santa Lego packs found at Toys-R-Us check-out counters. They came out with a new Santa each year and were only available in the late 80's and early 90's. I was so glad I bought them each year for my kids. Aren't they just adorable! They sold for around a dollar each.
But a few years ago I was surprised to find Lego Advent Calendar sets at Barnes & Nobles and the following year at Target. Every day leading up to Christmas the kids would put together a Lego Santa or an Angel or Snowman or some sorta toy. My husband still builds a set each day, even though the kids are grown. Then when Christmas is over, we take each of them apart so they are ready for next year.
The last couple years I have picked up these Mega Bloks sets at Target that are so cute.
SO, I haven't found any new sets this year yet. Have you? PLEASE let me know if you have! Thanks!
