This box set I feel has been the most bang for your buck! for $60.00 it has 687 pieces, 7 1/2 people and a horse! (the 1/2 person is stuck in the snow in the ice skating rink) And most of all, it is so dang cute! Who wouldn't want a Christmas Bakery? :) Jake got this LEGO set for me for Christmas and I finally just got around to making it!
Getting started. I got all the LEGO pieces out in piles, got out the manual and started. This set took me a bit of time to make but I got to watch some good old movies while putting it together. (Ace Venture Pet Detective, and Vegas Vacation)
