Thanks to Playmobil for sending along product samples. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!
So this week my kids got to do something that has pretty much been a lifelong dream of mine: opening up an entire Advent calendar in one sitting!
And truth be told, they got to do it twice. It’s tough to have to review toys, but somebody’s got to do it, right?!
When I showed the girls these two new Advent Calendars from Playmobil they pretty much lost it. They are BIG into this brand and absolutely love setting up scenes with their school house, farm, cruise ship and bus. Santa’s Workshop and the Royal Ice Skating Trip each had a whole lot of new AWESOME elements, including a toy chute, hardworking elves and the cutest forest creatures EVAH.
So the sets come in a cardboard sleeve and you slide out the Advent Calendar from that sleeve. You’ll also find the backdrop behind the calendar so you can set the stage piece by piece.
Friends, my kids have played and played and PLAYED with both of these sets and I honestly have a hard time believing the price point ($24.99). I have purchased toys that cost 3 times that much and that received far less attention than these sets have gotten in their first week with us. If your child likes figurines and creating fun scenes then this is truly a must-have this holiday season.
And if you really want to be wild and crazy, let your little collector open the boxes early so that the full set can be played with for the entire holiday season. I know, I know, that’s totally nuts, but didn’t you ever wish you do something super fun like that when you were a kid? Here’s your chance to make that dream come true for your little one. Sit down and do it with them, because each piece is actually a small building activity. It is SO fun!
In addition to these two sets, you can also find the 3 other themed holiday calendars, so hop on over to the Playmobil site and check out what’s available. I wouldn’t be surprised if these sold out in the next week or two, so don’t delay!
