Growing up one of my hobbies was collecting figurines. I used to collect Cherished Teddies from the mid-nineties up until they closed their European arm of the business in 2012. When my kids where young I learned about Department 56 and fell in love with their Christmas villages. When I learned about their Snow Village Halloween collection I got hooked immediately.
Every year I add to our collection, for both our Christmas and our Halloween collection and it’s always very difficult to choose which one to get. After all, if I wait to long with one that is on my wish list, it might be retired before I get to it. One thing that I was happy to get before it retired is the Department 56 Snow Village Halloween Mordecai Mansion Lit House. Department 56 retired the model and you can only find it through sellers on sites like Amazon or Ebay. Let’s take a look at why I love this model.
The Mordecai Mansion Lit House model is just over 10.5 inches tall and, as I said earlier, a part of the Halloween snow village display from Department 56. Before retirement, it cost $128. At the time of writing this article, the price has easily doubled or tripled. Still, I find that I would be willing to pay that price if I didn’t have it in my collection.
This amazing little model, hand crafted and hand painted, is something that will be an amazing addition to your display. There are two lights within the model, one green and one purple, to give it a spooky look. It also plays spooky Halloween night sounds. All the reviews I’ve read before purchasing spoke about what a great addition it was to their display and I didn’t find one negative review when I did my research.
Any Halloween addict knows that having a good display each year is a must. If you’re just starting out then this product will make a brilliant centerpiece. The noises are perfect for Halloween and it will really turn heads – and probably spook a few people too! It offers even the experienced Halloween display family the chance to add to their collection.
The house is high quality and highly detailed. Each item is slightly unique due to the hand painting and hand crafting, which adds to the value of the pieces.
