PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars

I received samples to help facilitate my review.

A favorite tradition around the holidays are advent calendars.  We were fortunate enough to receive 2 PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars to review.

Royal Ice Skating Trip

Glide across the frozen lake with the royal family! The Advent Calendar “Royal Ice Skating Trip” contains twenty-four surprise items for each day leading up to Christmas. Once all the pieces are revealed, you’ll see all the woodland creatures gathered to watch everyone skate. As an added bonus, behind one of the doors is a gorgeous bracelet, perfectly sized for kids to wear! Includes backdrop, two adult figures, one child figure, snowman, sleigh, deer, foxes, squirrels, owl, snow-covered tree, life-size bracelet, and many other accessories. Recommended for ages four to ten.Warning. Choking hazard. Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Jewel Thief Police Operation

Looks like a thief is after the jewels, but the police are in pursuit! The Advent Calendar “Jewel Thief Police Operation” with lots of glittering trinkets contains twenty-four surprise items for each day leading up to Christmas. Once all the pieces are revealed, play out an exciting police chase and capture! For an extra surprise, the included safe can be used a piggy bank! Includes backdrop, two figures, jewelry case, police motorcycle, gold bars, money, handcuffs, wanted poster, functioning safe, and tons of other accessories. Recommended for ages four to ten.Warning. Choking hazard. Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

My take:  I love how each day a certain piece of the set is revealed.  It is so fun watching the kids each day guess what the piece of the day will be.  It also helps the kids to keep track of how many days are left until December 25th.
