Call me crazy. This year I'm making custom Lego Advent calendars.
Every year we seem to buy two of the 3-4 available Lego advent calendars for my two girls, and we usually end up disappointed. Apart from the minifigs, the builds are usually a little too close the micro build size for us and a little too far away form the mini build size. In addition, the parts usually just end up in my "parts" pile and no one ever really builds those models ever again. This year I'm going to make it a little more fun. (Hopefully)
The first mini build I've designed is this fountain.
All of the models will have some use (every year hereafter!) in our small Winter Village. Since I have two girls, I'll have to make more than the usual 24 builds. Some days will be one each, others will be a "you need to work together to make this one" build.
Wish me luck.
If you're at all interested in building this model, here is the building guide I'll be giving the girls with this one: www.charlesp.org
