|Birthday Table Decoration  Box|
What's the perfect LEGO birthday present for a LEGO enthusiast (excluding the big box sets, of course)? The LEGO Birthday Table Decoration !
I recently celebrated my 30th birthday last month, and one of the gifts my ever-supportive wife gave me is the Birthday Table Decoration  set. It is the perfect centerpiece in the festive table (and the perfect announcement of your current age).

The iconic table decoration was released in the summer of 2015, retailing at £6.99 / $9.99 / 7.99€. It measures over 3” high, 3” wide, and 3” deep. It comes with buildable age numbers from 1 to 99 (poor centenarians). The official spiel says that it includes a jester minifigure, but the truth is it includes only half a minifigure. I really wish that LEGO has provided the jester his brick legs so that he can stand on his own. The jester is used in the set's pop-up function, revealing a cute birthday surprise. The set comes with a lot of colorful decorative elements, and translucent flame elements.
The building experience is a lot of fun, with all the different colors and layers. The final build resembles a mini cake that looks good enough to eat. The pop-up function seems stable enough that there's no need to worry if the top will detach and fly to the nearby food. I also love the size of the box. It is just enough to fit the final build without disassembling anything.

A quick customization of this set can make it fit to any birthday party theme. It's as easy as substituting the bricks with other colors to match the motif. Or changing the jester to any other minifigure the celebrant favors. For my wife's birthday next year, I was thinking of making a Disney themed birthday table decoration. Sounds like a plan...
The Birthday Table Decoration  is truly a perfect birthday gift for any LEGO fan...
