As most LEGO led pieces, the design of the LEGO 40338 Christmas Tree is authentic and meant to imitate the look of actual pine trees. LEGO achieves this by giving the tree a dark green color and a layered texture. Instead of a smooth surface, the LEGO 40338 mirrors the unevenness of the pine tree by having branches that poke out and leaves that overlap. The intricate design of the tree is supported by the presence of several stunning accessories and a giant big star that shines very bright. Santa did not forget to put presents under this LEGO tree! There are several wrapped gifts just waiting for you under this tree.
