Christmas is quickly approaching and it's time to start thinking about holiday traditions and gifts for the kids! I just love celebrating the holidays with my kids. It's just so special to see the excitement and delight in their eyes. This is why I try to incorporate a lot of family traditions into our holiday season. One of my favorite traditions is the Advent Calendar. I always buy one of those cheapo numbers at the store that has a piece of chocolate in it for every day. This is fun, but I was looking for something a little more substantial and interactive. Luckily, I ran across the Playmobil F orest Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar. This cute little calendar comes complete with a cardboard background and a box numbered with each day. Upon opening the numbered day your child will discover a cute playmobil character to add to their woodland themed set. So adorable.
I know that my kids will be so excited to reveal their daily surprise. It's so fun to build your scene as you go. The characters in this set are winter woodland themed, so they will be played with long after the holidays are over. This advent calendar is cute, reasonably priced and a great additional to your family traditions. You could easily recylce this set year after year by saving the pieces in numbered bags.
The Playmobil Advent Calendars are available in the following themes:
Pirate Treasure Cove, Princess Wedding, Forest Winter Wonderland, Christmas Post Office and Dinosaur Expedition.
I love that I can use this set to teach my children about the season, as well as incorporate counting/learning and tradition into our day! This set is so cute and whimsical. Did I mention that there is even a day that has a hedgehog and her baby hedgehog! Adorable. I kind of have a thing about hedgehogs. I love them!
I highly recommend checking out this advent calendar if you have a little one in your house. It's great for boys and girls. It retails for $19..99 and can be found wherever Playmobil is sold.
I was also lucky enough to try out the VERY cool Pirate Adventure Island:
