Review: 10263 Winter Village Fire Station

The Winter Village sub-theme is a popular range of Creator Expert sets, with a new addition released each year. This year it’s the Winter Village Fire Station.

This is my first entry into the Winter Village, can this wintery setting win over a Queenslander who has never seen snow? Read on to find out.

Build Experience

Christmas is a special time of the year for a lot of families – people take time of work and kids are home from school. It’s the perfect time for everybody to come together and build some LEGO. That is the approach that LEGO have taken with this set, with the build very deliberately split up across two books.

The first book covers the supplementary builds – the bench, Christmas tree, fountain and fire engine. It would be easy to pass the book around so that multiple kids could each build a standalone part.

LEGO Brings Back Two Winter Village Sets For Christmas

If this year’s Fire Station is your first entry into the world of the Winter Village sets then this information may be of interest to you.

LEGO have made 2017 and 2016′s Winter Village sets available for purchase again.

These two sets – a train and train station -  go perfectly together so it’s awesome that they are both available.

Christmas in Australia is a lot different to what is depicted in the Winter Village series but I always find them absolutely charming. I love this latest addition to the lineup.

The set features 1166 pieces over a series of builds – a frozen fountain, Christmas Tree, Bench with Streetlight, Fire Engine and of course the main Fire Station. There are a total of 6 minifigures plus a baby and dog.

LEGO To Re-release Winter Village Toy Shop

It has become something of a tradition that each year LEGO releases a new and exciting Christmas themed set as part of their “Winter Village” series. Well this year’s set fits the criteria of exciting, but not so much the new part.

LEGO is re-releasing the 2009 set 10199 Winter Village Toy Shop as 10249 Winter Toy Shop.

We suspect there are going to be mixed feelings about this set – those with the original probably feel a little ripped off that they aren’t getting something new, while those who missed out are more likely to be pleased to have a second chance to pick up this set.

10249-1 Winter Toy Shop

The set will be released on October 1st 2015 and has an Australian RRP of $109.99
