"I just finished putting this set together and had a great time with it. I hesitated to buy it because of the price but went ahead anyway and I am glad I did. I will look foreward to next years addition. the details in this set are amazing. I spent a lot of time looking at each part of the set as I built it so I could really enjoy it.
I have all of the Lego Christmas Village pieces including the 2012 special edition that was only available a short time. Putting the whole set together has been a truly joyful experience..
Here is a hint to the person who commented that the door didn't work because of the roof. If you put the door in so it opens inward it works fine."
