Christmas Miniatures – 1970

Christmas Miniatures – 1970

When younger, I was always somewhat fascinated by the dioramas of Christmas Miniatures. Actually, miniatures of any type which led to a quite a few hobby/obsessions over the years.

I don’t know if they exist anymore, but I dimly remember there being a large line of ceramic or plastic miniatures to make elaborate Christmas themed dioramas. This must be the forerunner of those dioramas. It looks like they’re actually HO scale miniatures from train sets though. This specific set is from Christmas 1970 and is part of a larger setup that involved the presents stacked into an impressive tower.

Does anyone remember having dioramas like this at Christmas? What was the purpose of having these setup?
