Overall I am very impressed with how many pieces there were for the price. I just bought it as a decoration for around my room, and I would encourage others to do the same.

If you want something to display on your mantle this winter. Or you just want to add to your Winter Village I think this set is a nice little addition. As far as I know you'll only be able to buy it from Lego.com or in brand stores. So there's no sense waiting for a sale. If you see it, pick it up!

Winter Snowball Fight (40424) is not my favorite set by a long shot. With that said, the kit comes at a good value, and contains a lot of Minifigure accessories. Even the brick-to-fig ratio is good. However, the Minifigures that you get are both children with unbending legs. I do not like those. Additionally, the set has too many small, undetailed builds. The set name is “snowball fight", so keep it a proper snowball fight.

It's a bit of a variety of typical winter vignettes, and with some simple imagination, they can connect into a quick story. This is a good little parts pack if anything, with the torsos as the highlight.

As mentioned in the gift recommendation last week, for a small set (149 pieces, $12.99, £11.99, 12.66€), this has a lot going on. It makes for a nice display piece on its own, and will also fit in well with any Winter Village (which is where mine will be going ). The new torsos for the minifigs are a bonus, and there is a nice selection of newer recolours. I'm personally a big fan of the red mukluk hat!

I have mixed feelings about LEGO Seasonal Winter Snowball Fight (40424). It's a fun little set but it doesn't feel cohesive as all of the builds are separate and aren't able to connect together. If you're a fan of these seasonal sets, you will most likely get it anyways especially this the cheap price point. For me, the highlights of the set are the minifigures.

I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely winter vignette set. Not only does it offer a great selection of parts, the model itself is also highly playable with some refreshing ideas. I also encourage any builder who is into making alternative models to pick this up and give it a go. It is a well-designed and rather affordable set to begin with, so why not?

While this isn't going to the ‘main' build for Christmas – that would be 10275 Elf Club House – it's become a tradition of the season to put together these smaller sets and have them displayed along with more traditional decorations. This is a fun little concept and is offers up a nice dose of winter cheer.
