There is no escaping it now, Christmas is coming. December is not far away at all and it’s most definitely time to start thinking about advent calendars – unless you want to be rushing round Tesco late at night on 30th November grabbing whatever naff chocolate offering is left on the shelves . . . In recent years advent calendars have really upped their game. I remember as a kid having a paper one – one that just had a picture behind each door! Remember those!? Yeah they don’t cut the mustard now do they . . . from a PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar for the kids to luxury beauty calendars or even gin – there’s something for everyone right?!
This year we have our very first PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar – and I’m pretty excited about that! Now of course for the purposes of writing you a proper review, I have opened a couple of the doors – just to give you a flavour of what’s inside – but I’m sure you understand why I haven’t opened them all . . . I don’t want to ruin the surprises for you guys, nor do I want to spoil the PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar for my own little team!
There are six PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars available this year – which means in theory Ben, Chloe and Amy could have a different one each. We have “Christmas on the Farm” which I love as it’s perfectly unisex!
Each door of the PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar opens to reveal a part of a festive farm scene – these are normal sized PLAYMOBIL figures and accessories so the play value from this advent calendar is huge! It comes with fold out 3D scenery for you to build your set on throughout the course of December.
Somehow I’ve managed to keep the PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar a secret so that’s going to be a lovely surprise for the kids on the 1st December and I can’t wait to see them build up the scene piece by piece. Of course part of me would like to pack it all away at the end of December and bring it out again next year but I know realistically it’s going to go into their steadily increasing PLAYMOBIL collection!
