I'm an urban designer in California and father of two boys. After a few years of getting them various sets, I began to develop a renewed interest myself. Santa's Visit was the spark for me, and since then I've really enjoyed the Winter Village collection and setting them up at Christmas time. And thanks to my father for being so organized, I recently was able to retrieve most of my childhood sets. Piecing together those 1980s Blacktron and Futuron sets was a real treat.
