Toady is the day our American chums give thanks before hitting the stores on Friday to grab a pre-Christmas bargain. Yes today is Thanksgiving and although it’s one of the few American customs to take off here in the UK, we have still got to enjoy a Thanksgiving-themed LEGO set or two in recent years. So to celebrate Thanksgiving we’re taking A Look At LEGO…. Thanksgiving Sets. There’s a been a LEGO turkey or two released in the early 2000’s but the first real Thanksgiving-themed was released in 2013.
The set ‘Thanksgiving Feast’ featured a table filled with a hearty Thanksgiving feast including a little LEGO turkey. A male and female minifigure were included to enjoy the feast along with two cats.

In 2014 the Thanksgiving Turkey arrived complete with a Pilgrim hat. The brick-built creature could be posed in various ways with spreadable tail feathers, moving the wings and feet plus the mouth could be adjusted.

Last years set was part of a series of seasonal scenes each based on a 8×8 space. The diorama featured a slice of a room where an elderly couple are enjoying the Thanksgiving dinner.

This years set features a fun looking Pilgrim, who’s enjoying a couple of greatly undersized turkey legs. It follows the same design style as a number of other of this years seasonal sets.
