Report Filed: Department 56 I have been an advisory collector of department 56 North Pole village pieces for 15+ years. I own probably over 75 pieces. Nationwide!!
In the last few years department 56 started releasing pieces that actually do more than light up. For example characters dance in windows etc… The pieces that move are JUNK!! If you purchase one please realize that it will only make one season if you are lucky. Also don’t bother emailing department 56 about the product they know it is junk and will thank you for your response and then basically tell you nicely to piss off. Their customer service was deplorable considering the cost of the products they sell!
