LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 3

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

Continuing with Day 3 of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253), we finally get something that’s more synonymous with Christmas. Today we get a build for a reindeer and it looks very good given the parts that we have in this set. The 1×4 arch pieces are used for the body while some hinges along with clips and tooth pieces for the antlers. The nose is black but I took the liberty to change out the black stud to a red one to represent our favorite reindeer.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 2

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

For Day 2 of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253), we have a very interesting build that some may like and some may disagree with. Here we have sort of a mixture of animals that are incorporated into this one including a duck, parrot, and peacock.

The parts usage is good to an extent with a lot of color variety put into it. The tail is probably the holiday part of the build as it looks similar to a wreath.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

For the first half of last month, you could’ve gotten a free LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) set with purchases of $99 or more. I intentionially waited to do my review on it until we got to December because it fit more with the month. For the 2017 set, it has 254 pieces as compared to 250 from 2016.

The set comes with four un-numbered bags of parts along with a decent sized instruction booklet. There are 24 different individual builds and the idea for this set is to build the item for each day and then take apart for the next day. It may seem a little tedious but younger kids may enjoy it.

The first day of the Christmas Build Up (40253) is a nice looking pirate ship. There’s no intersting building techniques to it but the parts usage is on point. I do like how the sails are held up using the modified 1×2 plate. The ship isn’t holiday related but it’s a good nonetheless.

You can get it for free with a purchase of $99 or more, while supplies last. This set looks similar to last year’s 40222 set but are all new ones for 2017.
