Santa's Workshop DisPlayset
*** We have finished selling these sets for 2023. We will begin taking orders for them again in spring of 2024. Thank you! ***
It is our hope that the handcrafted Santa's Workshop DisPlayset, its figures, and their story cards become a holiday tradition in your household. The DisPlayset is made of sturdy ¼” Baltic birch, with poplar, birch, and pine support pieces, and is designed to hang unobtrusively on a wall where it can serve as both holiday décor and an interactive play experience for you and your loved ones.
35” tall, 16” wide, 4.25” deep
The DisPlayset comes in four pieces (three assembled sections and a support board) which can be joined together in just minutes with a Philips screwdriver (not included).
The Santa’s Workshop DisPlayset comes with twelve figures:
Elf Fogfore (the elves’ advocate)
Elf Doogi (the dollmaker)
Elf Leifyr (the courier)
Elf Gunghäster (the rocking horse maker)
Elf Kovar (the farrier in Santa’s stables)
Elf Rommi (the rocketmaker)
Elf Bjorni (the teddy bear maker)
Elf Lootkie (the pupper maker)
Elf Toggi (the trainmaker)
Elf Grüm (the stablehand)
We believe that Santa's appearance often reflects that of the families that he visits, so we've made our Santa and Mrs Claus figures available with three different skin colors each. While this of course does not fully capture the full human spectrum, we hope that these choices, coupled with the relatively spartan linework of the drawings, will allow folks to see the Santa and Mrs. Claus that they want to see. You'll have the choice option below (you can see the different figures on the Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus store pages).
Other Christmas Companion figures are also available, either individually, or with the 5-figure Closest Companions set, or the 25-figure Advent Special Collection set, which contains every first-year release figure.
The Companions of Christmas figures are 1/8” finished hardboard, and range from about 1.5” to 4.5” tall. Figures come with 3 x 8.5” cards telling telling their stories. The cards fit in the story shelf on the Santa’s Workshop DisPlayset.
These DisPlaysets, and the accompanying figures, are handcrafted and require time and expense to make, and so unless otherwise noted they are made to order rather than kept in stock. Any orders placed before August 15 will be posted for delivery no later than October 31. I am not yet sure if I will take orders after August 15 for this year – we’ll have to see where I am regarding how many I’ve sold and how much time it will take to make them.
Although we use non-toxic sealant on the pieces, possible preservatives in the wood itself, or the glue that allows the wood to work as ply, could cause upset stomachs were a child to chew through the sealant coat, and some of the smaller pieces (like the elves) could potentially get lodged in a kid's throat were they to be swallowed. Because of this, we recommend that SchweizerCraft products not be made available to children who still put toys in their mouth.
Currently, we are only shipping within the United States, as we can only use private carriers for international shipping with insurance and tracking, and these carriers can be incredibly expensive, so much so as to possibly double the cost of the DisPlayset itself. If you are an international customer interested in a DisPlayset and willing to shoulder this extra expense, please contact us with a mailing address and we can inform you of the shipping costs (we can only calculate this if we have a physical address, not just a country).
*** We are past the point where I can make any Christmas sets in the hopes of having them delivered before Christmas 2023. Any sets ordered will require eight weeks to complete (finding time to make them around my other work).****
