Christmas Nutcracker Figures

The most popular Christmas figure in recent years has proven to be the Christmas Nutcracker. Based on the popular German wooden crafted Nutcrackers, our collection of Nutcrackers includes LED light-up Nutcrackers as well as a range of larger figures.

TThese friendly and alternative Christmas characters are perfect for indoor and outdoor use and look particularly great guarding your front door or standing beside a fireplace, especially if you opt for a pair.  Plus, available in lots of different characters from the classic soldier, to unique dog and polar bear figures, our weatherproof Nutcrackers are all hand-painted and long-lasting and we also have a select number of acrylic Nutcrackers available. When we say Christmas, we usually think about Santa and his reindeers. After all, gift-giving and merry-making are best associated with Father Christmas in his red suit.

They are, indeed, the stars of the season.  But, as traditions evolve more Christmas characters become popular. A recent popular Christmas figure is the Christmas nutcracker. They are available in different colours and sizes and sometimes come with LED lights.  The Christmas Nutcracker is a favourite alternative or addition to the usual Christmas decorations and accessories.  Depending on the design, they could come in pairs, one either side of your front door, where they stand guard to greet your guests. Or they can be tiny figures to place on your mantelpiece, together with other Christmas decorations.

FAQ's About Nutcrackers

How Do Nutcrackers Relate to Christmas?

There’s a story behind all our favourite Christmas characters, stories that people have come to love and adore. 

Most are aware of Santa’s story and how every Christmas, he delivers toys from his toyshop to nice girls and boys around the world. But, not a lot is known about the story of how nutcrackers became a Christmas symbol.

The invention of nutcrackers began as something true to its name -- to help people break open nuts. At one point, makers of nutcrackers started designing them like little figures. This was in hopes of increasing marketability.

The marketing became successful. Then, it became even more popular because the ballet, The Nutcracker, became a big hit. The play was set during Christmas time, so people began associating nutcrackers with the Christmas holiday from then on.


Legends and stories began spreading as well. It tells people that nutcrackers symbolise power and strength; they guard the home from evils and dangers. This is also the reason why they are mainly designed like toy soldiers and look like guards standing by the front door.

Choosing a Christmas Nutcracker Design

Christmas nutcrackers come in different sizes and materials and have varying features, too. Choosing your Christmas nutcracker boils down to where you plan to show them and what functions you wish they have.

Below are a few sample design ideas you can choose from:

Polyresin, Pastel-Coloured Christmas Nutcrackers

This is the perfect choice for deciding if you want to put them outdoors or indoors. Polyresin is a material that can withstand outdoor conditions and, at the same time, is lightweight. Thus, you can easily display it inside the home.

Hand-painted, weatherproof Resin Christmas Nutcrackers

If you plan to order a pair of life-size Christmas Nutcrackers for your outdoor display, then go for products that are hand-painted on resin. 


Hand-painted figures pay attention to detail so you can be sure they look the best. Meanwhile, resin locks in the colours and prevents them from fading, even when exposed to rain and sunlight.

Polyresin Christmas Nutcrackers with LED Lights

Do you want sparkling Christmas nutcracker displays? Then buy those that have built-in LED lights. This design is also available in tall sizes. Imagine how eye-catching your life-size, twinkling Christmas nutcrackers would be?

Polyresin Christmas Nutcrackers with LED Lights and Music

If a giant, sparkling Christmas nutcracker figure is not festive enough for you, then go all out with one that plays music!


Like a real toy soldier drumming and swaying his hands away to Christmas music, this Christmas nutcracker figure is the ultimate choice for people who like their displays to catch the attention of their friends and neighbours.

How to Store your Christmas Nutcracker Figures

Like any other Christmas holiday decoration, storing your Christmas nutcracker figures is extremely important. This is especially true if you ever decide to buy life-size Christmas Nutcrackers. You would want to maximise the use of this Christmas display and use it for many more Christmases to come.

Here are a few storage tips and techniques to make sure that your Christmas nutcrackers stay in good condition even as they are wrapped away for the rest of the year:

  • Before even purchasing a life-size figure, make sure that you find a space in your home to store them in. 
  • Wrap the figures in bubble wrap or paper before storing them back inside a box or a storage bag
  • If there is limited storage space, make sure that the figures are placed in an upright position in an area of the house with minimal traffic or movement. Putting them in a room with high activity will increase the chances of it toppling over and breaking.

The surest way to secure nutcracker figures is to follow the instructions on the product. Read them carefully and follow them so that you can be sure your decorations stay in tip-top shape for years.
