As well as being absolutely huge, this display also has some really cool sub-builds like a Christmas Koala, Santa holding a surfboard (it is summer in Australia after all), basketball sized ornaments and a big pile of gifts and a reindeer that was designed by 10-year-old Lego Club member Luke Francis.
