Here in the U.S. and around the world, the end of the year brings a number of holidays and festivities, and under normal circumstances, a trip to the ballet to see The Nutcracker is a major holiday tradition. Well, in the midst of a global pandemic you will be able to bring a little bit of the Nutcracker home for the holidays. LEGO’s holiday BrickHeadz this year is 40425 Nutcracker. Although LEGO was able to send us an early review copy, we still don’t have the price, but we presume it will be $9.99 like other standalone BrickHeadz. It will be available starting October 1 and has 180 pieces.
Want to get a HUGE head start on that Christmas shopping instead of doing it the day before? Did you miss out on the 40254 Nutcracker set during the last Black Friday promotion? Well you’re in luck, because this weekend from July 28-29th, LEGO Shop at Home US is hosting a “Christmas in July” sale where you will receive the nutcracker set free with purchases over $99 US. There are a couple of sets on sale as well including the popular 10259 Winter Village Station and the Ninjago Quake Mech. Use this link or click the image below to see the sets on sale and make your purchases while supporting The Brothers Brick at the same time!
I’m sure many of you have your chestnuts roasting by the open fire. Those of us NOT in Florida or the northeast might even have jack frost nipping at our noses. The Cascade Mountains have certainly made up for last winter with nearly 12 feet of snow in the last 25 days.
Julius von Brunk gives us these festive, whimsical nutcrackers to join in all of our festivities. Like real nutcrackers, these open and close their jaws by means of a lever. You too can have these as part of your traditions, as he’s been kind enough to provide a tutorial on Instructables.
