I choose to look at this years Winter Village set "Santa's Workshop" in a different way than some of the other people here does. In my view this is Santa's local Winter Village department, and not his main workshop. The Winter Village series is more a retro-style real life scenery in a real life village with mostly normal inhabitants. In this respect this year's set fits well in with the rest of Winter Village. The pole with the text "NORTH POLE" is symbolic. Santa's main workshop however, could be a nice theme for a future major expert set, independent of the Winter Village series. I have to agree with some of the complaints mentioned earlier. There could have been some more "indoors" and some more details. The reindeers are nice to build, but they would have looked nicer if they had been molded. I don't have any hang-ups regarding the number of reindeers. 4 reindeers works fine in this set. The image of Santa Claus made by a certain soda company and a cartoon- and movie company, isn't always the answer that has to be followed. Regarding the future big expert set however, there would be room for eight reindeers, at least... I have a suggestion for a near future Winter Village set. The Winter Village should have a small village church! Maybe in Alps-style? This shouldn't be controversial. The holiday season in question is evidently Christmas, so then a church would be natural and have role to play.

I am a huge fan of the Winter Village and look forward to adding to our village every year. Our Winter Village is an emblematic part of our Christmas decorations. This addition comes as a great disappointment. First of all, I think Santa's Workshop should be a larger, more impressive building that dominates the village. It should have much more interesting features in the architecture and interior. It should have a light brick or even 2. I like the conveyor belt but it would be better fitting inside a workroom in the building. Who thinks Santa forces his helpers to work outside in the cold of the Arctic Circle? And wouldn't it have been nice if Santa's throne was in a room where the village children could visit Santa? Next, Santa's Christmas tree should be worthy of Santa and the whole crew of elves who decorate it. And how did Mrs Santa make those cookies if she has no kitchen? The sleigh has some nice features but the reindeer are awkward at best. And someone should have told the Lego designers that Santa has 8 reindeer. If Lego had made a reindeer mold 8 would have fit in a harness for this sleigh. I appreciate that they held the price down this year, however, I don't think Santa's Workshop is the place to have done it. For a once-a-year set and Santa's own workshop I really wish they had pulled out ALL the stops.

Time for a sleigh ride with Sant

By blindsite1

from Cecilia

Comments about LEGO Creator EXPT Santa's Workshop (10245):

This was a great addition to the other winter village sets I have. I got it this past Christmas as a gift. The Santa's workshop is actually two buildings that connect together and form the angled wall and roof line of the structure. the reindeer are cute and whos does not want to ride in Santa's sled when they were kids. This set would look great displade at Christmas time as a decoration, but you can still play with it yourself or with your kids or grand kids.

Great Christmas Scene

By thistlenut

Comments about LEGO Creator EXPT Santa's Workshop (10245):

I enjoyed putting this entire set together, and like it much better than the old Christmas Village pieces we had. Fun to make and easy to store for next year, don't have to worry about breaking anything, since it can be fixed easily. Very clever pieces in this set. Love it!

Great for Christmas Eve

By tarmina

Comments about LEGO Creator EXPT Santa's Workshop (10245):

Purchased this for Chrismas Eve instead of a jigsaw puzzle. Had great fun putting it together with the family although it took a couple of days to finish. Great attention to detail and used it as a Christmas table centerpiece.

Santa's Workshop, Workshop, WORKSHOP!

By amazed78

from Muurame

Comments about LEGO Creator EXPT Santa's Workshop (10245):

Santa's Workshop is a medium sized set of 883 pieces, and six stickers. The set contains six minifigures, Santa Claus in a traditional red and white outfit and a white beard, Mrs. Claus in matching colors and white hair braided around the crown of her head, and four elves in various hues of blue, red, and green. Two of the minifigures (Mrs. Claus and one elf) have double-sided faces. The set includes are two booklets, and all the magic of building this Lego set happens in three phases. First phase includes the building of Santa himself, the baby reindeer, the North Pole sign, the Christmas tree, Santa's sleigh and the four adult reindeer that attach to the sleigh. Second step is all about building Mrs. Claus and Santa's home, and the final stage includes the four elves, their workshop, and the toy making machine. The build itself is not overly difficult and there is very little repetition save for the four reindeer, and the sides of the sleigh. I had no major problems during the build, and the hardest part (well, except for the stickers) was to follow the instructions to a tee. At one point I thought I was a better builder than the design team, but was proven wrong (again) and had to backpedal a bit. I really, really like the looks of this set, it is simply gorgeous! The curved windows and doors and the dripping snow effects are so cute that they make my eyes ache. I also really like that the two parts of the building are not linear (on a straight line), but at an angle to each other. The gorgeous stained glass window is my favorite followed very closely by the fantastic stone pillars that are on both sides of Santa's front door. The red, black, and silver-colored toy machine is also brilliantly designed with its exhaust pipes, levers, and gauges, and the revolving thingamajig on top of it is priceless. I also think the design and colors of Santa's sleigh and chair are just perfect, and even the reindeer are brilliantly executed. The set is so perfect it's very hard to find anything wrong with it, so I'll have to nitpick: Santa's reindeer are a bit too close to each other and their horns get caught; Mrs. Claus' torso definitely needs a white skirt and not a red one, and her facial expressions are perhaps a bit harsh for a 'woman in her position', i.e. no broad smile on her face, but then again, maybe she is just stressed out by all the elves running around; and Santa's room is a wee bit small for such an important person. A light brick would've been an extremely good addition (perhaps behind the stained glass window), and I would have really appreciated the inclusion of some trees, such as in 10249 Winter Toy Shop (design numbers 3471 and 2435). The toy selection is perhaps a bit on the small side, and the addition of an extra elf or two would've been great, although I don't think Mrs. Claus would agree with me on this one. My set had an extra red ball joint (design number 32474), so I decided to name one of the reindeer Rudolph and replaced his brown nose with a red and shiny one.

Santa's Workshop

By MrToes16

from Bronx

Comments about LEGO Creator EXPT Santa's Workshop (10245):

I wanted to start a tradition of building a Lego winter village scene and I selected Santa's Workshop as part of the build. Since this was one of my first expert level builds, I did find the build challenging but still a fun experience overall. The set itself... Pros: - The detail level is beautiful. The look of the building itself is what I would imagine Santa's workshop to be. Quaint with a little bit of whimsy with the candy cane posts. From the chimney to the step stone front porch, the look is awesome. - The minifigs are great. Santa is an obvious get but the addition of Mrs. Claus is good and the helper elves is just pretty much necessary if you want to label this as a workshop. - The sleigh design and reindeer is nice where you can have a setting of getting ready to ship off for the Christmas deliveries. Con: - The building itself is a little smaller than what I would prefer. Not so much that it needs to be taller but perhaps wider. There seems to be more space dedicated to Santa's office or living area than the actual workshop itself. Maybe it would have been nice to have an area like a stable for the reindeer. - The workshop build for the elves is good and nice to look at, but could be better. Would be nice if the conveyor would have a moving element or something. Also, since the floor space of the workshop is small, having the conveyor build on the outside seems awkward. - The connection between the two main parts of the building seem a little tough to keep together. There are clip elements on the sides but they just do not hold too well. I found this to be a bit of a struggle when moving the build around. Overall, I really like this set and for the cost I think it puts it at a great value. My village is small because I only have a few sets but I think this is a great addition.
