I really like this lego santa ornament especially since it is easy for the younger children to put together, yet makes them feel like they are building like the big kids. Santa is equipped with a built in hole for hanging a string through in order to get it to hang on the tree. My son is not quite 5 and can do this one entirely by himself. It is so nice for me to see it hanging on the tree knowing that my took his time and heart to build it for me. It makes looking at the tree a wonderful experience. I can only imagine once he is grown and moved out how it will bring tears to my eyes! He can also be used other ways. We keep all our legos out year round and put the train around the town and just add Santa to the tree lot as a decoration, like the large blown up santa's sometimes seen.
The price of this lego is one of the advantages, at $2.99 it is both a good price for a lego and for christmas ornament. Not often can you find a christmas ornament for even that price.
Legos are extremely durable and made of heavy duty plastic that are pretty much impossible to break, although they do hurt if you step on them. They are also great for the imagination since children can build whatever they like with the pieces and use their imaginations.
I would highly recommend this lego for any occasion, not just christmas.
