It’s a little too early for the official countdown to Christmas but I thought I would let the boys start sooner and open their Playmobil Advent Calendar in October! Well its only fair for you guys to what the doors eventually unlock, if your thinking of getting one for your own children that is!
These advent calendars are great, I like that the boys start each day with something Playmobil related rather than chocolate. Plus the contents in their entirety build a scene with lots of playability. The boys very fairly took it in turns opening a door each at a time to see what would be unveiled. There was a sense of excitement wondering what they would find next.
At £18.99 they offer excellent value, we had the Advent Calendar Dragon`s Treasure Battle as you get three figures, a horse and a dragon, alongside lots of other little accessories for some dramatic battles. The boys especially liked filling the treasure chest with gold coins, they are teeny tiny but my boys are old enough now to play sensibly with a set like this.
The helmets and shield and all the weapons can make for an exhilarating action adventure fending off the dragon intent on getting his claws on the treasure. Also included was a card game, so plenty to keep your children happily occupied for ages!
You can see all the advent calendars on the Playmobil website. They seem to add new ones routinely, so you will always be able to increase your collection with the latest scene quite easily. The Christmas themed one caught my eye; I love the build up to Christmas day so opening boxes with cute elves and a sweet angel and of course Father Christmas himself certainly would get you into the spirit of things.
