Review: 40206 Santa

Happy Boxing Day!  I hope that everyone had a merry Christmas or whichever holiday you choose to celebrate.  I also hope that you celebrated it with your family or whomever you preferred to be celebrating it with.

This is a Christmas set that dates back to 2016.  I picked it up in the Seasonal section of Stop'n'Shop.  Apparently it is available at other locations.

Box.  I paid $11.99 which gets us a $0.08 Price per Piece.


Parts 1.  Bricks, Plates, and Slopes.

Parts 2.  Plates, Slopes, Modified Bricks, Ball Joints, Tiles, Modified Plates, and a Bracket.

Parts 3.  Plates, Tiles, Slopes, Lampholders, Clip Plates, and white Flame Pieces.

Build.  Frame and Station.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5)  (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  A decent enough set but since it's old and seasonal I don't think there's a good chance of picking one up..
