Lemax's Victorian Carols

Caroling is one holiday activity that has a complicated history.  Most of the time it is portrayed as cold, wet and annoying.  Depending on where you live, it might not be the safest way to spend your time.  However, it can be a very rewarding bonding activity to spread Christmas cheer to your neighbors.  Thankfully, Lemax has given us the ability to relive simpler times when groups could roam the street and sing fun songs.

Lemax's Victorian Carols

The great part about this piece is that it can be used for just about any Lemax village.  Their wardrobe allows them to fit in perfectly with the Victorian-style villages.  However, it's easy to imagine that this family have coordinated their outfits and that they do this every year.  The matriarch of the family is a music teacher and has been able to teach the whole family to sing.  Since they get so much joy out of caroling, a decision was made to go around town and spread the joy to as many as would accept it.

This piece has a wonderful little animation to it that really sets it apart.  It is simple and effective in conveying the life of your Lemax village.  Unfortunately, it doesn't have any sound to it, but since most of our Lemax villages all have a house or two that plays songs, we can easily set this one up next to a Sights & Sounds piece to create the illusion without creating more noise.

And, as always, happy village building ;)

One of the best things about our Lemax villages is that Christmas exists all year 'round.  The lesson that Scrooge learns at the end of the immortal tale from Charles Dickens is a lot easier to adhere to when you are surrounded by the pageantry and decorations.  Businesses like the one we are going to talk about today seem to only exist in smaller towns, but thankfully, we can keep the positive Christmas attitude alive in our homes with pieces like this one.

Everyone loves a good water feature, you can always hear it before you see it.  Once you hear it, you start to wonder what it's going to be.  I believe that stems from the fascination with water most babies have.  From the earliest age, we are intrigued by water.  As we get older, we hear about making wishes into wells and water gains an element of magic.  When we grow into adulthood, many people find flowing water soothing and we use the sound to fall asleep at night.  This week, we are talking about Lemax's piece that has actual flowing water for your Lemax citizens.
