There is nothing more joyful than counting down to Christmas with the help of an Advent Calendar. I have great memories of my chocolate filled calendars as a child; it was so hard waiting until the next day when you wanted more than one treat! Each year they get more and more creative, and 2015 seems to be a very fun year for the kiddies!
I found awesome advent calendars at Toys R Us that I wanted to share with all of you. I focused on non-edible ones, which I find are much more exciting and a great substitute in case of allergies.
Lego Advent Calendars
There’s no doubt that with all the buzz of the upcoming movie, the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar is going to be a very popular choice this Christmas. However, if Star Wars isn’t your thing, Lego has also released Lego City and Lego Friends Advent Calendars for ages 5-12.
Retail Price: $39.99 – $49.99
Fisher-Price Little People Advent Calendar
I’m planning on getting this one for my Zoey as it is the perfect introduction to a Little People playset! I haven’t introduced her to the Little People by Fisher-Price yet, but now that she will be turning a year very soon I have no doubt she will love it! (Maybe Santa will bring her a Little People playset!) This advent calendar is filled with Little People friends and fun holiday themed accessories to add to their Christmas fun! Perfect for 12-23 months.
Retail Price: $34.97
Playmobil Advent Calendars
Playmobil has launched a variety of advent calendar themes for this year’s collection, which include Santa’s WorkShop, Christmas in the Forest, Christmas Room, Unicorn Fairyland and Fire Rescue Operation. I really like that you can pick whether the items you receive will be Christmad related or not; best for playing all year round! All of the sets vary between 4-6 and 4-10 years.
Retail Price: $23.97 – $26.97
Mega Bloks Minion Advent Calendar
You can never go wrong gifting anyone Minion filled anything! They are loved by the young and young at heart! This particular advent calendar is for ages 5 and up, and includes a variety of build and play surprises. I’d even recommend it as a fun advent calendar you and your partner can countdown to Christmas with (I’m seriously considering it!).
Retail Price: $29.97
Play-Doh Advent Calendar
I’m about a month shy of turning 28 years old and still play with play-doh! One of my favourite things! Even though this advent calendar is for ages 3-7, I’d be delighted to receive this as a gift! (Hint, hint, nudge, nudge) The amount of creativity you can pour into play-doh is truly endless, and perfect for keeping kids busy; especially if you want to give them a break from screen time.
Retail Price: $17.57
I had so much fun putting this post together and thinking about all the advent calendar fun I had growing up. Remember, you had to get a head start on picking these up as I don’t doubt that they won’t last long on the shelves! You can find them all at your local Toys R Us; and even reserve them online and pick-up in store if needed.
Toys R Us, I’ll see you later on today to pick up Zoey’s advent calendar 🙂
