Do you display any particular village set?

I've read through the posts here and have seen Lemax and Dept 56 mentioned, but not some of my favorites. Is there anything particular that you like? If Dept 56, which set, North Pole, Christmas in the City, Snow Village, etc.

I display: the Bedford Falls/It's A Wonderful Life set produced by Target,

Sears' A Christmas Story set, and

the Currier & Ives set sold by JoAnn's some time ago.

I have all Dept. 56, but some of my accessories are Lemax. 50% is Original Snow Village, The other 50% is mostly North Pole, a couple Dicken's, and one Christmas In The City. I haven't bought any new pieces in a few years. I think their creativity has maybe run it's course. There's definately a type of charm and originality in their earlier pieces that's been missing for about 10-12 years. These days I buy retired pieces on e-bay.

I have the whole It's a Wonderful Life and Rudolph Villages and The Mr. Christmas Carousel, Carousel with swings,Roller Coaster, Ferris wheel, Tilt-a-wheel (to match my displays Carousel, Carousel with swings,Roller Coaster, and Ferris wheel. No, I don't have a Tilt a wheel, yet! LOL). I am on the lookout to buy a whole Disney Village so if anyone sees anything please let me know. Do you want to know what disappoints me the most? That there is NO Frosty the Snowman Village! Nice work Pepper and Chuck! I'll have to see if I can drum up any pictures of mine.

WOW my sister would so love the whole Mr Christmas village.I bet it is beautiful.She collects carousels & has a few of the pieces.

Here is a picture of my Coke Ferris wheel.Its animated & 1 of my favorites.The piece in front to the right is a rocket type ride that spins.I seem to remember it needs to be wound up to work.

Wow! That is beautiful! Are you the one who did the LSP video? I am going to attempt to fit in dressing up my outdoor carousels. You should see if you can find a wall wart with the right voltage, so you won't have to press a button to get it to work.

Thanks!

Yes I was the 1 that posted the LSP video.As you can tell I Love Coke LOL

My ferris wheel works with an outlet.It is so cute running.The big rocket spins & the bear hits the ball to make the bell ring.

The smaller rocket which is separate to the front right of the ferris wheel behind sleepytime hotel works only by winding the button underneath.

I am a fellow LSP user. Your video would make a perfect commercial for Coca-Cola! I gave up drinking Soda myself, I'm trying to stay away from all the HFCS they use in everything today. I have 10 songs programmed so far only using 64 channels which I will be duplicating. I am programming three songs now that I will be using with the Wii Guitar and drums. One of them is pretty easy, long but easy! I had attempted using a program called Maestro 2 years ago and I am manually copying all the effects from a song I did then to LSP, then I will go back and change the intensity on 6 of the channels to 10% so they can be played on the Wii Guitar or drums. How is your progress so far?

That song was used for a commercial.Its when they have the santa trucks passing thru town.I'm addicted to the drink LOL.I do space it out to only 3 16 oz bottles a day.I know I should cut back more but its so good.

I just started with sequencing this past month.I have 32 channels & got them in a few weeks back.This year I will mostly use sequences that are already done being it will be my 1st year.I started blue christmas by Elvis & have 25 seconds done so far.Looks like that 1 will be a good starter sequence.I'm also working on Josh Groban's Believe & have about 30 seconds done.I like that 1 too.The last song is not christmas related but Louisiana themed.That 1 will be a secret for now LOL.It will be a hard 1 to sequence.I hope that I can pull it off.

I'm so glad I won the LSP program.I played around in LOR S2 but didn't like that I couldn't use my house & real looking lights for a visual.

WOW I bet it will be cool with the wii.You will have to take video & show us.
