Why the Lemax Father Daughter Dance #74224 is "Oh so special"

Why the Lemax Father Daughter Dance #74224 is

It is truly is impressive how village collectibles manufacturers like Lemax anticipate the interests of their collectors and introduce new concepts, upgraded workmanship and improved artistry each year that really resonates. This past year, one piece in particular stood out to me… The Lemax Father Daughter Dance #74224.  Of course the Sights and Sounds collector’s item is extremely well made and beautifully designed but for me there is a deeper connection.

As a dad of a 10-year old daughter I have now proudly attended 6 Father Daughter dances. Each year these dances have had a different theme ranging from western to 50’s sock hop to 80’s to Disco to the Great Gatsby…what will be next? These dances are as memorable as they are fun. Starting with a photo shoot at home, then on to dinner-for-two on the town, followed by hula hoop and limbo contests all culminating in the Father Daughter slow dance -It’s just an incredible time. The priceless memories made and the bonds built truly makes the Father Daughter Dance one of my favorite nights of the year.

So needless to say, when the Lemax Father Daughter dance was released in 2017 I knew it would instantly become one of my favorite pieces. Lemax' depiction of such a fun and meaningful night is very realistic and very well made. The father-daughter teams swing around the dance floor each with their own style and panache. All in good fun, each team vies to take the top spot and earn the first place trophy so proudly presented at the winner’s table. The dancers, all uniquely crafted characters, glide around the floor of the “Snowflake Dance” so gracefully making for such a realistic and cozy atmosphere.


There is always so much fun to be had at these dances but they are only held once a year.  The good news is, now I can bring this Lemax Sights and Sounds piece home to serve as a reminder to me and my daughter of all the memories we've made year after year.  I truly love it and so will you. This exquisite piece sets a festive vibe in any holiday village collection.

Happy Villaging!

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" 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.
