The Department 56 North Pole Village Series

Department 56 first introduced the North Pole Village series in 1990. This imaginative series takes a whimsical look at Santa’s Christmas Eve preparations. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and all the elves are busy finishing their preparations as the time for Santa’s magical flight draws near.

The North Pole village is filled with all of the cottages, shops and factories you imagined existed as a child. The M&M Factory, the Gum Drop Factory, Santa’s Light Shop and many more all provide a glimpse into Santa’s magical world. Some of the North Pole village buildings are more than the intricately detailed lighted porcelain buildings that Department 56 is known for. The Gum Drop Factory has a moving conveyor belt that moves different colored gum drops from one side of the factory to the other, and the M&Ms dance around inside the M&M Factory.

In addition to producing all of the confections of your childhood imagination, the Naughty or Nice Detective Agency is constantly on the look out to see which children are being (obviously) naughty or nice.

Life during Christmas Eve however, is more than just work, work, work. There are plenty of fun things for the elves to do also. Whether its ice skating, sleigh riding, or testing the toys, there is always something fun to do at the North Pole.

The North Pole village series also has a variety of accessories to both compliment and enhance your vision of Santa’s magical wonderland. How about a path through the village made of M&Ms, or gum drops, or peppermint swirls? You can also get some Smores from Mrs. Claus, or peppermint sticks from some enterprising elves.

The Department 56 North Pole Village series brings Santa’s magical world out of your imagination and into your home, where dreams and memories can be relived year after year.
