Ok, well it's not the Lego Seaside House.

This is 48cm wide, but only 28cm tall.

Packaging details can be found here.

You could spend time checking out online what's current and matches your measurement, or you could save yourself time and sneak a peak with opening it a tiny bit. wink.gif

DH knows surprises are not for me. I like to know things NOW!

I"d be going in the bathroom or somewhere with a lock with the box and peeking laughing2.gif If I had to, I'd even disguise it walking from A to B hahaha

The present is super wrapped so peaking and resealing  will not be easy.

It is a joint pressie, so hoping it will be something both boys will enjoy building and playing with (together).

Bugger s some of the larger sets don't have dimensions.

I may have to wait until kids are in bed.

Could it be playmobil not lego?

#16 IsolaBella

Posted 21 December 2012 - 01:35 PM

Not likely but possible.


#17 FeralZombieMum

Posted 21 December 2012 - 01:59 PM

How much does it weigh?


#18 IsolaBella

Posted 21 December 2012 - 02:04 PM

2.1kgs but our scales are cheap dodgy ones

#19 Foogle

Posted 21 December 2012 - 02:13 PM

My guess is it is set 10228 The Monster Fighters Haunted House. original.gif

ETA: Found box dimensions - it's about right.

Gotta admit they (online store) did good job with wrapping. Can't peek in anywhere.... All seams sealed.

It is driving me nuts. Bring on bedtime so I can peek.

Yes I am a terrible parent.

#21 IsolaBella

Posted 21 December 2012 - 02:20 PM

Good sleuthing Foggle cool.gif

Another website had the dimensions different so I had discounted that.

#22 Foogle

Posted 21 December 2012 - 02:41 PM

It could also be the Grand Emporium or it may even be Creator Pet Shop (both fit the size) but it can't be Town Hall (depth 12.5) or Tower Bridge (depth 12.5) and it also can't be B-Wing Starfighter which was another thought of mine but that supposedly goes into a 12.5 depth box as well even though it has the least of all the pieces of those sets.

GE was released in 2010 and PS was released in 2011 though so I'm staying with my best bet of the Haunted House. original.gif


#23 IsolaBella

Posted 21 December 2012 - 02:45 PM

The boys are 5&7 so probably the house.

Now the emporium or pet shop I would love (says she who still has the medieval village hiding in the cupboard for 18m)

I will report back later when I have peeked tonight
