The long-awaited LEGO Winter Village 2021 set has finally been revealed (a little early by LEGO Singapore) – 10293 Santa’s Visit, a quaint little Christmas set that’s due to arrive on 1 October 2021, with VIPs to get early access on 16 September 2021.
UPDATE: I’ve just published my review of 10293 Santa’s Visit. Check it out to see more photos, and what I thought of the set!
This 1445-piece set comes with 4 minfigures, including a brand new Santa Minifigure with dual-moulded legs (boots, finally!) and a family of 3 in a light blue home that bears a striking resemblance to the 10229 Winter Cottage.
This collectible Christmas house measures over 7.5 in. (19 cm) high, 10.5 in. (27 cm) wide and 6.5 in. (16 cm) deep.

Here’s a look at the four minifigures in the set, which also show off a new cookie element which is new and currently exclusive to the set.
The house is build on a uniquely shaped base, and also features an entrance with a mailbox, and a new Christmas Tree as well.
In a first, the Christmas Tree has a special surprise on the inside – a light brick which makes this the very first LEGO Christmas tree that illuminates at the press of the button!
Here’s a look at the interiors, which features a dining table, kitchen with a great stand mixer, and living room where Santa pops out from the fireplace. And there’s also an upstairs bedroom which showcases the child’s love for space!
A really neat detail is in the front – and I love how the designer uses green Wolverine claws for foliage details throughout!
Like last year’s Elf Clubhouse set, the set promises a playable element through the chimney, which looks to be big enough for Santa to fall through.
At first glance, 10293 Santa’s Visit is a clear spiritual successor to 10229’s Winter Village Cottage from 2012, which is one of the most expensive Winter Village sets on the secondary market, so kudos to LEGO for refreshing it for 2021, and not going the re-release route they went with 2015’s Winter Village Toy Shop.
I think it’s great, and while it is most definitely influenced by the Winter Village Cottage, it is also it’s own unique design and has so much of its own identity. Look out for a review soon!
