We have entered November. Can you actually believe it. This means it is only 55 days until Christmas. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel this year has flown by.
As an anticipation to Christmas I always like to do a few things beforehand to get even more excited about the most cosiest family time of the year. One of the things is an advent calendar. Of course there are always the chocolate calendar every child gets for the month of December (even the odd adult, I still love advent calendars) but it is nice to have an advent calendar for once which is outstanding and is not all about chocolate for once. When WOW got in touch to review one of their toy advent calendars, I couldn’t have been more happier. I was able to receive their Farm Yard advent calendar which gives you 24 cool toys.
What I really find impressive in this advent calendar, and something that makes it different from all the other ones out there, it has a fold down play scene where you can basically place your figures on the individual numbers each day. It makes playing so much more fun when you have an actual scene, rather than just playing on the wooden floor in your living room for example.
All figures are Christmas themed and it comes with a Christmas tree that you can create yourself. It also has a limited edition push-along tractor.
This advent calendar is aimed at children between the age of 1 and 5 years. So absolutely perfect for those pre-school years. It is great for developing motor skills, learning to count and do role play & exploration. None of these toys require batteries.
Matthew has been eyeing the advent calendar since I received in the post. It will be definitely a big hit once we can open up the first window. I’d say it will be some job trying to convince him not to open up any other doors until the actual day each day.
The RRP of the advent calendar is £24.99 and can be bought from any retailer, ie. Argos or Tesco.
Disclaimer: I was sent the advent calendar for the purpose of this review. As always the honest opinion provided is my very own.
