Performance

The LEGO Creator Winter Village Post Office may not dazzle when you first hear about it. After all, it’s a post office. But the final product really does shine and the winter village post office comes with enough pieces that you can easily make it into any building you want. There’s a reason why LEGO is consistently named one of the best children’s toys, and that reason is versatility. The LEGO Star Wars Death Star 10188 comes with a whopping 3,803 if versatility is what you cherish most in LEGO sets.

Design

The LEGO Creator Winter Village comes with 822 pieces of pure building fun. You can buy the LEGO Winter Village for your child or LEGO aficionado this coming Christmas and they’ll be able to have it ready by next Christmas. The LEGO Winter Village’s post office takes centre stage, obviously, and is done-up wonderfully with sloped green roofing with tan walls and blue trim. Almost like a post office straight out of a fairy tale or Scandinavia. If winter isn’t really your cup of tea consider the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon 7965. A great set for any Star Wars fan.

Value

One of the great things about LEGO is that they offer free shipping in the United States on orders over $35, and it’s pretty easy to spend $35 at a LEGO toy shop. We’ll let you decide whether that’s a good or bad thing. Shipping on LEGO sets usually takes 2-3 business days but LEGO offers express shipping at checkout. The website also offers robust product information so you know exactly what you’re getting in your winter village, or any LEGO set really, before you buy. The same goes for the LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate 7964. Check out the LEGO site if you’re a Star Wars fan and want to learn more about the Clone Wars set.

LEGO 1022 Wrap Up

Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way and agree that $500 is a pretty hefty price tag. But that’s really the only downside to this Winter Village Post Office LEGO set. Sure, the fact that it’s a post office may not inspire giddiness when you first hear about it, but always remember the old adage: “never judge a book by its cover.”
