Ice skating can be one of the most beautiful things to witness, but also one of the most painful to learn. As anyone who has ice skated can attest to, it can make you very cold and very wet, very fast. You also learn why hockey players wear all those pads. You need a good sense of balance and to make sure that you don't give up. It can be very daunting and there is a lot of room for quitting, but if you learn how, you get to glide around the rink like you're in a fairy tale. Our piece this week from Lemax is just a tiny piece of that.
This piece is a lovely little window into a moment for these people and animals. You have a little girl who brought along the family pet to enjoy her time learning to skate. There's a couple, possibly on their first date, with the gentleman trying to impress the lady by trying to teach her how to ice skate. They've been visited by several little woodland creatures, all fascinated by the humans gliding around on their, now solid, watering hole.
Victorian Skaters is a simple, easy to setup piece that is full of whimsy and imagination. Since it comes as the base and all the figurines being separate, you can set it up however you would like. All the figures are magnetic and can be placed in whatever way best suits your village. It's also relatively small and can be placed on an end table or nightstand to spread the Christmas cheer throughout your home.
