Say hello to this year’s LEGO Christmas Winter-themed set – 10267 Gingerbread House!
While it’s not quite a LEGO Winter Village-themed set, the concept and design is so delightfully bright and creative. That said, you can make an argument that the Gingerbread House could technically exist within the Winter village.

The LEGO Gingerbread House’s design will be familiar to fans of LEGO’s Winter Village theme – you get a quaint doll-house cottage but instead of it being covered in snow, it’s covered in icing.
The last few years of LEGO Winter Village sets have been fairly forgettable, so I’m really glad to see LEGO flexing their creative muscles again, with this fantastical take on a Gingerbread House.
Full disclosure, I love all things Gingerbread, and I look forward to the festive season each year just so I can stuff my face with Gingerbread people or structures.
Who lives in a Gingerbread House? A Gingerbread Man, and a Gingerbread Woman – you may remember the debut of the Gingerbread Man minifigure in Series 11, and these two minifigures have slightly more defined features such as a moustache for the man, and rosy cheeks, lipstick and a skirt for the woman.
What happens when a Gingerbread Man and a Gingerbread Woman love each other?
They make a Gingerbread baby of course!
I love everything about the colourful, candy-covered exteriors, but the interiors aren’t too shabby themselves.
Designed like a dollhouse, the insides of the Gingerbread House pack a ton of detail with living spaces for the entire Gingerbread Family.
Check out the features on the inside. There’s a bedroom, a bassinet for the Gingerbread Baby, fireplace, a kitchen to bake cookies (are they cannibals??), and even a picnic table outside.
My favourite part of the house? The bathtub, which I imagine could be filled with milk.
The Christmas tree isn’t the biggest this time around, but I do like the new Star that they’ve used to top the tree.
I haven’t been this excited for a LEGO Christmas set in a long, long while.
I’ve been a massive fan of the LEGO Winter Village theme since inception, there’s been a distinct lack in imaginative sets in recent years, but the LEGO Gingerbread House is an amazing take on a much-beloved Christmas tradition.
You can tell that the designers absolutely had a ton of fun with the set, judging from the highly detailed exteriors and the playful features contained in the set.
This is a must-buy for me personally, and even if you don’t collect Winter Village sets, the whimsical nature of a LEGO Gingerbread House inhabited by a Gingerbread Minifigure family will appeal to a whole bunch of LEGO fans – from families looking to assemble a festive build, to long-time Winter Village fans.
What do you think of the set? Is this going on your Christmas shopping list this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section!
The LEGO Gingerbread House set will be released on 18 September on LEGO.com for VIP members.
