Lemax's Christmas Ballet AVAILABLE NOW!

 

We have a very special piece here.  The Christmas Ballet might be one of the most elaborate centerpieces that we've seen at Gift Spice.  It is new for us this year and it is ready to bring that warm feeling of nostalgia to your home.  Either by adding it to your existing Christmas village or using it as the starting point, you will not be disappointed by this one.

 

 

 As showcased in this video here, this piece packs a lot in it's 12" x 13" frame.  The scene is set with kids playing around the Christmas Tree while an orchestral version of "Deck the Halls" and living toys accompany their merriment.  Right on cue, the ballet moves on with a background and character change.  A tin soldier and ballerina replace the toys and we switch to an excerpt from Tchaikovsky's, "The Nutcracker Suite".  Finally, with one more background change, Santa and his helper come out to the tune of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" to conclude the ballet.

 

The Christmas Ballet is the most intricate piece I've, personally, ever seen from Lemax.  The figurines turn and it lights up, as you might expect, but the scene changes caught me by surprise.  The towers on the sides also change with the scenes, for crying out loud!  The music flowing seamlessly from one song to the next is a great touch that will add the holiday ambiance you've come to expect from Lemax.

 

This piece is as simple as always to set up.  It only requires one outlet to have it ready to perform for your village and the figurines that populate it.  It is a little large, coming in at over 6" deep, over a foot wide and almost a foot high, you will need to make room to fit this one in.  If you wanted to start your Lemax collection with this one, we recommend setting it up next to your Christmas tree and possibly picking up the North Pole Railway to complete the look.

Mashups are almost always good.  The television show Glee created all kinds of song mashups that garnered them enough praise to create six whole seasons of content.  The movie Zombieland mashed up horror and comedy so well that it resonated with fans long enough for them to get a sequel made ten years later, which comes out in theaters today, October 18th.  In fact, horror and comedy often get mashed up because they both tap into very primal emotions, fear and joy.  We have a tiny dose of that today with these pieces from Lemax.

Lemax's Grim Balloon is spreading spooky cheer!

October 11, 2019

Spooky cheer sounds like an oxymoron.  Most things that are spooky aren't cheerful.  Scary clowns, creepy skeletons, and haunting ghosts are usually not associated with rainbows and roses.  However, as previously discussed in one of our previous posts, fear has a place in most exciting things in life.  Whether it's a bigger fear about having a new adventure or something inconsequential like freaking out over a jump scare in a movie.  So, this week, we are talking about Lemax's resident aeronaut, the Grim Reaper in his Grim Balloon.

Roll the Bones
Roll the Bones

October 04, 2019

"Roll the bones" is historically a phrase that refers to rolling dice at the Craps table.  The masterful band Rush wrote a song about it that you can listen to here.  It's a phrase that has become synonymous with letting fate decide and dealing with the outcome once it happens.  Today, we will be talking about some of the bone figurines that Lemax has rolled out.
