Following our post on the 10199 Winter Village Toy Shop, we were inspired to get our hands on the other two Lego sets in the Seasonal Series - the 10216 Winter Village Bakery and the 10222 Winter Village Post Office. For now, we have only managed to buy the Winter Village Bakery, which was released by Lego in 2010; the Winter Village Post Office has not been officially released in Singapore (Toy Station, though, has available sets). Nevertheless, we will look to buy, build and post the Winter Village Post Office before Christmas!
At 687 pieces, the Winter Village Bakery is the smallest Lego project we have worked on, never mind the Seasonal Series. However, it is just as aesthetically pleasing as the Winter Village Toy Shop. Taking about four hours to complete, the building experience was short but enjoyable. The Winter Village Bakery officially comes with 7 minifigs, but we would argue that it comes with 8 as there is an additional minifig stuck in the snow (only his feet are showing)! The set also comes with a horse drawn carriage, which adds to the village / non-urban feel.
Design-wise, the Winter Village Bakery, like the Winter Village Toy Shop, is only half-built - the facade is complete from the front but the back is exposed. There seems to be a design flaw in the shop, which does not have a ladder or a staircase for access to the second floor.
Overall, from a play and display perspective, the Winter Village Bakery can stand on its own, but we would propose adding it to the Winter Village Toy Shop to make the village a true hub of activity. Like the Winter Village Toy Shop, it also comes with lighting - we encourage you to check out the rest of our 40-odd pictures of this set. Our verdict on this set? Buy - especially before Christmas!
