Lego has launched a replica of Kevin McCallister’s house in ‘Home Alone’ for Christmas. Here’s everything you need to know, from price to how to pre-order
When asked what films we associate with Christmas, chances are you’ll recall everything from Love Actually to The Grinch. But there’s one that stands out for eliciting that warm, festive, fuzzy feeling: Home Alone.
The Nineties classic needs little introduction. It involves a young boy (Kevin McCallister) defending himself and his home from two dopey burglars (the wet bandits) after he’s accidentally left behind by his family, who have jetted off to Paris.
More than 30 years later, Home Alone is still part of the zeitgiest. Not only is there a (controversial) reboot in the works, titled Home Sweet Home Alone, but Lego has jumped on the bandwagon by launching a brand new set of the film’s principal location (£229.99, Lego.com).
Yes, you read that right – you can now recreate the McCallisters’ mansion at home, and the set is full of all the intricate details you know and love, including the wet bandits’ van and Kevin’s traps.
If you want to get in the festive spirit – ya filthy animal – the set will be released on 1 November, just in time for and Christmas.

This McCallister mansion is instantly recognisable: it’s definitely time to relive the Christmas classic with this 3,955 piece Lego set. It also features five minifigures, including, of course, the wet bandits (the burglars), as well as a screaming Kevin.
It’s said to be packed full of Easter eggs and items that hark back to some of the most notorious scenes from the film, including a cut out of Michael Jordan and the TV showing Angels with Filthy Souls. You’ll also find a variety of traps and pranks too.
How to pre-order
The Lego set will be available to order online from Monday 1 November, making it the ideal time to get ahead of the Christmas shopping rush and order it for the Home Alone fan in your life. We’d recommend being quick, as we predict this will be a sell-out.
