A festive Christmas model brings extra joy under the tree. This year's Box semitrailer truck in Christmas design from Herpa is not only a highlight for collectors. Equally popular is the Schuco Christmas model in 1:43 scale, because under the package on the loading area hides a surprise! Limited to 750 pieces worldwide.

The Small dioramas from Busch are always a special highlight at Christmas time! Every year there is a new scene to admire in a showcase. This year, according to the motto: "Freshly cut!" Santa Claus himself is at work with a chainsaw to celebrate a beautiful forest Christmas.
