Whats new this year? We have a dollhouse village of 24 one-inch-scale houses, and weve also added 21 new buildings to the train setup, as well as another locomotive and a trolley car, Hanzon begins. From there, its hard to get him to stop: Theres a luminous garden my attempt at a black-light garden and dripping Avatar-esque trees. Theres an inflatable garden of giant toys, and the horse trail has a bunch of new stuff to see along the way, including animation and motion sensors. We put in a new fountain and tweaked the holiday house, and the tree at the end of trail I call it the Glorioso is now just crazy, lit up with hundreds of yellow and red LED lights. Ooh. Aah.
