As a family we love Lego. It’s something we really enjoy and love to do together after school or on a quiet weekend afternoon. A couple of years ago we started the tradition of buying the children advent calendars that were more tangible than a chocolate one, with something they can keep long after advent and more of an investment. This year LP has a Lego Friends Advent Calendar which I know she will love to open each day.
The Lego Friends Advent Calendar 41326 has 24 doors to open and at the end you can visit the Lego website for instructions of something you can build using the whole set. But, until then, each door opens to reveal a simple Lego kit, making 24 different models over the course of advent.
In the advent calendar you get to build a holiday party scene for the LEGO Friends pets it starts with Stephanie and her snowmobile and then you find furry friends, market stalls and even a horse, Christmas tree and snowman.
I love how each day the Lego Friends Advent Calendar gives you something to build – rather than just a single brick or two. Each day has a good level of play value and LP can play with the advent calendar as she opens each door – and doesn’t have to wait until all the doors are open to get a good amount of play value from it.
The Lego Friends Advent Calendar is a great alternative to a chocolate calendar and although it costs more the amount of Lego actually works out as really good value. It’s something I know LP will love to build as we work our way through December and it’s something she’ll be playing with long after Christmas.
The Lego Friends Advent Calendar has an RRP of £19.99
