Review: LEGO Mini Gingerbread House (40337)

I thought it was a novel idea for a gift with purchase when I first heard that the LEGO Creator Gingerbread House (10267) would be getting a mini version of itself. AFOLs and Moccers have been designing miniaturized versions of their larger counter parts for years, it is about time that LEGO got in on the action. Unboxing The […]
