LEGO Creator Expert 10293 Santa’s Visit | 1,445 pieces | Available Oct. 1 (Sept. 16 for VIP members) | US $99.99 | CAN $139.99 | UK £79.99 | TBB Review
Completed house measures over 7.5 in. (19 cm) high, 10.5 in. (27 cm) wide and 6.5 in. (16 cm) deep.
With this year’s set, Chris decided to take an unusual approach and designed the house with an irregular shape at the base. The result looks stunning, with the interior looking much more spacious than it could have been with a regular rectangular building.
The set includes 4 minifigures with dad, mum, girl and Santa so you can recreate endless cosy family Christmas Eve scenes.
Just like other Winter Village sets, the new Santa’s Visit has some play features. For instance, the Christmas tree has a light brick inside (which can be activated by pressing on the top), while Santa can get inside the house through the chimney.

Spread holiday cheer with the LEGO® Santa’s Visit set
10th September 2021: The LEGO Group is ushering in the festive season with the reveal of its LEGO® Santa’s Visit set, the latest addition to the Winter Village collection.
The charming new LEGO Santa’s Visit set is ready to welcome Santa and his reindeer, and sure to bring to life the special excitement felt during the holiday season. The design centers on a cosy little house, where a family are busily getting ready for Santa’s arrival. Cards are collected from the mailbox; gifts have been wrapped and treats have been put out in anticipation of the most exciting time of the year. Once the build is complete, all Santa needs to do is drop down the chimney to spread some Christmas cheer!
Santa’s Visit offers a new, novelty building experience for the whole family. It forms part of the popular Winter Village collection, which includes the LEGO Gingerbread House (10267) and LEGO Elf’s Cub House (10275).
The set is bursting with tiny details, such as a fireplace with stockings, a chimney (with enough space for Santa to slide down through), a child’s bedroom, a detailed kitchen with decorated dinner table, milk and cookies to leave out for Santa, and a comfy chair for him to curl up in.
It also features Winter Village’s first illuminated Christmas Tree! Just press down on the top of the tree to trigger the light brick hidden inside. The house is also decorated with boughs of holly and includes a snowy gate with mailbox. At the back, a roof panel articulates outwards for easier access to the upstairs bedroom.
Chris McVeigh, LEGO Set Designer commented: “The holiday season is always a magical time for my family. It’s been fun to inject a few of my own family traditions and experiences into this set from the new Christmas cookie to the hidden gifts.”
LEGO Santa’s Visit set is available exclusively for LEGO VIP members from 16th September and from LEGO Stores and www.lego.com/christmas from 1st October 2021.
