LEGO has revealed the newest set in their Creator Expert Winter Village line, 10267 Gingerbread House. This sweet treat of a set comes with 1,477 pieces, two minifigures of a gingerbread man and woman, and a printed tile with a gingerbread baby.
A decade ago, LEGO launched their Creator Expert Winter Village line with 10199 Toy Shop and every year since, we have been delighted with a new addition to the snowy LEGO town. Of the nine previous sets (including the re-release of the Toy Shop in 2015), almost all feature locations based in reality like last year’s 10263 Fire Station, a carousel from the 10235 Winter Village Market, or the two-year combination of the 10254 Holiday Train and 10259 Winter Village Station. This year, 10267 Gingerbread House joins 2014’s holiday set 10245 Santa’s Workshop as the second fantastical model in the series.
The front of the box shows the gingerbread house with a chimney in mostly brown and medium nougat with a white frosting-covered roof. Dripping with sugary goodness, the set has candy buttons as roof tiles, candy canes as columns and street signs, as well as glittery sugared glass windows all made from LEGO elements.
The back of the box features scenes from the life of our gingerbread friends, showing off a new design for a star-topped Christmas tree, a toy train, and a cozy fireplace that lights up by pressing on the top of the chimney stack (including a light brick is a tradition in the Winter Village line).
From the front, you can see the varied angled roof-line complete with candy swirls and peppermints. Textured rock elements in white are used to give the appearance of dripping frosting, and a traditional wreath hangs above the front door. The set measures measures more than 8 inches tall (21cm), 10 inches wide (26cm) and 5 inches deep (13cm).
LEGO released a smaller version of a gingerbread house in 2015 as gift with purchase during the holiday season. As you can see, the earlier 40139 Gingerbread House featured a similar color palette and could very well be used as a fun play house next to the new version being released soon.
The back of the set shows an incredible amount of detail from a white-chocolate bed (featuring ten ingot tiles, a first in that color) as well as a cotton candy lamp. Other rooms include a bathroom with tub, a kitchen and living room with a couch and fireplace. It is easy to see how this will be the the second-largest Winter Village set by piece count, following 10229 Winter Village Cottage by only 13 pieces.
A closer look at the minifigures shows we have a brand new gingerbread family to add to our collection of cookie companions. While both torsos appear to be identical, they feature new red buttons. The gingerbread man sports a mustache and the gingerbread woman features new pink-cream filling and rosy cheeks as well as a printed skirt piece. A gingerbread baby is also included, printed on a tan 1×2 tile, that his or her parents must have recently baked up in the kitchen.
There have been two previous versions of gingerbread men in LEGO form, the first from 2013’s Collectible Minifigure Series 11 that came in the same medium-nougat coloring with a printed mug, as well as one of 2016’s seasonal gifts with purchase 5005156 Gingerbread Man who came in a printed box but in dark orange for a more toasted look.
Though this model has the fewest minifigures of any set in the Winter Village product line, the gingerbread family keeps busy in their cozy candy cottage. We also can see them using delectable details like a snow blower, baby carriage and crib, picnic table, hanging stockings, rocking horse and a toy train.
The following video shows the set in a real-life setting, and it looks like it could be a yummy centerpiece of any holiday display.
The complete product information, press release and expanded photo gallery from LEGO are included below.
