A huge part of Christmas for me every year is watching the movie Elf! With fans all over the world, of all ages who love the film and its characters including myself, I decided to create a LEGO set, which features two of the main locations from the film; Santa's Workshop at the North Pole and Walter Hobbs office. This set will be the perfect way for fans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Elf the movie which is in 2023!

The set is made of 2929 pieces (Including all updates so far to January 26th on the updates section) and has 3 room areas with details and characters that can be placed freely inside and outside and there is also Walter Hobbs' office area.

The Rooms and details are as follows:.

Room 1 - Classroom.

The classroom where the elves learn all the important things and rules contains 2 desks; one for Buddy and one for another Elf. There is a teacher Elf also, who is pointing with his stick to a blackboard with the code of the elves written on it.

There is a small table at the back of the room and also a build learning style table to the side of the room. There are signs up on the walls in the room also for "Toy Piano Tuning", " Doll Painting", "Bear Stuffing" and "Model Train Engineering".

The windows have a stained glass effect to match the movie.

There are beams and columns in this room also for architectural effect and match the ones in the movie.



Room 2 - Toy Building Workshop.

The job that all elves desire to do, work in Santa's Workshop building toys! This room has many features, in particular, Large doors at the back of the room that can be opened with an arch way framework. The window again has a stained glass effect to match the movie. There are 2 small console style tables with drawers and details and one large storage shelving unit to the back left of the room next to a tall cabinet. There is a wheelbarrow full of toys next to the table where there is plenty of room for building and sitting, and space for all the elves and all the tools needed to build them.

To the right section of the room there is Buddy sat at the table in the toy testing area after being unable to build toys fast enough, now opening Jack in a Boxes. There are 4 lanterns placed around the room at all sides ensuring all can be lit and seen while toy building and testing.

Room 3 - Living Room Area.

The living room area is built for relaxing with a large sofa and 2 smaller chairs and there is also a little cot for Suzie to sit in. These all sit in front of a huge fireplace with a log burner and log storage underneath with pots and pans hanging from the mantle.

There are 2 cabinets in the room; one large and one medium size in each corner both next to windows with the stained glass effect to match the movie with a blue transparent plate outside between the 2 attached buildings giving a frosty frozen effect.

There is a small table between the chairs with a glass jug and a small cabinet on the left side with a lantern on 2 walls also.
Outside of Building area.

The outside building area has a log cabin effect with windows and doors with heavy snow finish with a canopy above each, trees placed around, a wood log storage area and post box.

Some outside features are detached from the main build.

  • A block of floating ice that Buddy heads off on his travels on surrounded by water.

  • A larger snow scene with 2 trees, one either side of Walrus, Polar Bear Cub and Arctic Puffin

  • A bursting out of the water with splash effect Narwhal scene.

  • Santa's sleigh scene with trees

  • Mini snowball fight scene with Michael

  • Leon the Snowman

Attention to detail.

From the details on the Minifigs and characters, to the small details on cabinets and walls, there is plenty to find and see all over the set including these for example.

The book from the film, the photo of Buddy's parents and the New York City snow globe.



My main goal with this set was allow the playability to recreate scenes from the movie with plenty of space and functionality.

I have had amazing feedback about this set so far with many Elf fans and family's wanting to build this together at Christmas and have it on display. This set offers something to everyone of all ages to get together and build and become a Christmas tradition building this set every year.
