Stop what you’re doing, the best Christmas gift has officially dropped.

Mirroring the McCallister residence, in which a baby-faced Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin) cooked up a masterplan to fight two crooks after his family forgot to take him on holiday, the set boasts a clone exterior and interior to take you down memory lane of the 90s classic.

As you recreate the magic, you’ll resurrect memorable moments with Buzz’s pet tarantula, the robbers’ van, the paint cans used to knock them down, and the treehouse with zipline.

There is even a miniature lotion from the infamous bathroom scene where little Kevin slaps aftershave on his cheeks and screams the house down in horror of the stinging sensation.

You’ll also be reunited with the main characters, including standout star Kevin, mum Kate, and, of course, bungling burglars Harry and Marv.

The brainchild of Alex Storozhuk, 28, the Ukrainan submitted his pitch to LEGO Ideas, an initiative that encourages designs by fans for the fans.

Speaking about his triumph, Alex said: “Just like every 90s kid, I grew up watching Home Alone and it takes a very special place in my heart.

“I can’t even imagine holidays without it. This movie is very nostalgic and makes those warm childhood memories come up every time.”

In a bid to conquer the overwhelming number of pieces, the set has been created like an advent calendar and is split into 24 bags so you can build the house in sequence with the movie, starting with meeting the thieves and ending with Kevin’s reunion with his mother.

The designer who took Alex’s concept and created the final set said she was stunned by the likeness of the replica and can’t wait for people to experience it in tandem with the film.

Antica Bracanov explained: “Bringing Alex’s Home Alone house to life has been brilliant fun.

“He’d thought about every aspect, from the layout of the rooms to the use of colour and, of course, the details from the movie to make it instantly recognisable.”

She added: “We wanted to make the experience as immersive as possible. The step-by-step build which mirrors the movie, and the ability to open up the set and see inside, lends itself well to hours of joyful focus this holiday season – just add a festive backdrop and a certain Christmas movie.”
