Holiday Guide: PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars

As we get closer and closer to the holiday countdown, we find that if there are kids in the home, that the wait can seem like forever for them. Like many kids, mine look at the calendar daily, looking at how many days until the month of December, so that they can officially start a countdown. And like many parents, to help with the holiday countdown, I like to add fun advent calendars to our home each year. So when we were sent a couple of the holiday advent calendars from the PLAYMOBIL line up, I was excited to add them to our holidays, and also add them to this years holiday guide! 

With the different advent calendars that you can get from the PLAYMOBIL line up, you can choose from a variety of themes that your kids are sure to enjoy. For my home, when it comes to my boys who adore the toys from the PLAYMOBIL line, we found that the Jewel Thief Police Operation was perfect for my son who loves the PLAYMOBIL City Action line up. This advent calendar is one that brings that same play from the City Action collection to our holiday countdown. Where we find that the police are in pursuit of a thief who is after the jewels, and each day as we countdown the 24 days to Christmas Eve, the kids can open a window to unlock another clue and piece to the set. When all pieces are out, the kids can then set up their own scene of how it all goes down, over and over again!

Then for my younger son who also adores the sets from the PLAYMOBIL line, we found the PLAYMOBIL Advent Santa’s Workshop to be a great set for him to follow along with. Giving him 24 windows of surprises that can be found at Santa’s workshop. From the toys and helpers to the sleigh and even Santa himself! Which once all the days have been counted down, give my little guy a fun set up that allows him to play like he is at Santa’s Workshop over and over again with the various pieces that are included! Which in all, makes the choice to add the PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars to your holiday countdown a choice that is not only a lot of fun as the kids find a surprise everyday, but also a choice that helps make the countdown a easier one for the kids to follow as that anticipation builds up!

Product received, thank you to PLAYMOBIL as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.

    Non-traditional advent calendars have become more popular in recent years. This is a wonderful example.

    That police operation one is so cool. Going to look at their other ones now, I've already started and can tell I'll want a lot of them.
