The Packaging & Checklist
Series 23 has no out-of-the-ordinary packaging but does spice it up a little. This series' packing is orange with outlines of party decorations rather than question marks in the background. The usual red circle of series 23 is there, along with many of the Minifigures featured in the series. The checklist is also likely to continue this orange and celebratory style that's very neat and is a nice throwback to past LEGO sets designed in orange.
