Box arrived for the boys for Christmas.
So super s*uths what is inside LOL?
(Can you tell I don't like surprises)

Don't want to clue the kids into the fact that mummy is snooping

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.

It is driving me crazy lol!
DH knows surprises are not for me. I like to know things NOW!
Also can't ask who sent as they are sleeping at this time.

I"d be going in the bathroom or somewhere with a lock with the box and peeking 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.

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.

Good sleuthing Foggle
Another website had the dimensions different so I had discounted that.

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.

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

Boxing Day projects. Boys put House together (assuming it is the house) and you put Village together.
