I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving. Ours was full of family and food - good times all around.
Last night was the night that we had to get the Christmas decorations out because the advent calendar is in there. The one that starts today!
This year, though, we have a new advent calendar which is proving to be a lot of fun and cause for great anticipation for my kids.
The Playmobil Advent Calendar "Knight's Duel".
Each day we get to open a little box with a little Playmobil toy in it. Once we open all of the boxes, we will have a complete knight scene. It's like a puzzle that my kids get to play with as they go along.
We've never actually had anything Playmobil, so I was pretty excited when MomSelect sent it to me to review. Yes, they sent it to me, my kids are playing with it and I am talking about it here on my blog. That might happen a few times during the holidays. They generously sent me a box full of goodies to review. Thank you!
Anyway, it did take me 40 minutes to put together last night. That is the only downside. I would say it is very worth it, though. The toys are really well-made. I can tell my kids will enjoy them.
The only other downside is the fact that I have 2 kids so they have to take turns with a box each day. Thank goodness, I have another advent calendar that the other child gets to do his or her off days. It is one the kids actually made a couple years ago that says Happy Birthday Baby Jesus! I love that one.
They also have a girls set and a couple other winter scene sets and a Nativity Set.
I am not an Amazon Affiliate. North Carolina does not participate in that program anymore. I'm just directing you to Amazon because it's the easiest and cheapest I found online. You can get some of these sets at Target and Toys R Us, too.
So, do you do an advent calendar?
