At Canadian Villages we are all about creativity, inspiration, and finding the perfect pieces! But, we are also practical. There are some things that seem quite boring and we overlook them as we search for something that catches our eye. As we build our villages it is helpful to remember the practical pieces everyone needs. These are our Top 5 items that help make building and displaying villages a breeze.
Lemax STICKYMAX (74702). This stuff works. It helps keep figurines and accessories in place. We know you place things with great thought and care, wanting to have the perfect scene. Then the cat, child, or generally clumsy person comes along and disrupts it all. This is why you need STICKYMAX. Designed to keep Lemax pieces in place, you will not regret using it. Sure, you might have a role of tape or some dried up blue stuff in your drawer, but some dedicated STICKYMAX in your Lemax storage area will save you a lot of frustration.
Lemax 4.5V 3-Output Adapter - White Fixed US Plug V.2 - (94563). We know this sounds boring and confusing It’s not! Believe us, it will save you from a mess of tangled cords. Plug in three lighted buildings and done. No muss, no fuss. There is nothing worse than having cords get in the way of where you want to place things. If you do have to place things near a cord and worried about it falling over, see STICKYMAX (above).
Lemax LED Bulb Moonlander (74273). Sometimes hard to find at a store, these replacement bulbs will be your go to! Bulbs are like batteries - they die at the most inopportune times and you never seem to have an extra one. Don’t let your village go dark because you have run out of bulbs! These are LED and will last a lifetime!
