Playmobil Advent Calendars // Calendar Countdown

Originally I only found 1 new advent to the Playmobil collection, turns out there are 4 which is why this post is going up so late, sorry!

Playmobil Dress Up Party Advent Calendar - £20

- This contains 2 figures with a lot of different dress up clothes and accessories. Even includes a ring for the child to wear.

Playmobil Pirate Treasure Island Advent Calendar - £20

- Includes 2 pirate figures, one boat, one treasure chest and lots of accessories to create an island scene.

Playmobil Christmas On The Farm Advent Calendar - £20

- Includes Santa Claus, An Angel, The Boy with his Tractor, Cows, Goats, Sheep and other farm animals and accessories. 

Playmobil 1.2.3 Advent Calendar - £20

- Includes Santa, An Elf, A Sleigh, A Christmas Angel, Reindeer and other woodland animals.

How are they different to last years?

This year they've come up with completely different scene concepts, the only familiarity is Santa being involved in multiple calendars. I actually really like how they've diverted 2 of them from being overly Christmassy as not everyone is as religious with Christmas and may not want to have Calendars that include the Christmas Angel.

Are they worth the money?

In a similar way to the lego advent calendar you are getting figure pieces to build a playset, the only difference is that the pieces themselves aren't buildable. I love these for younger years since you can go from 18 months upwards. Having a child use figure pieces to express their imagination is not only brilliant for them in terms of learning and development but gives you quiet time, bonus!

What do you think of the Playmobil advents? Is there one you prefer more than the others?

I'm not just reviewing skincare and beauty advent calendars in my Calendar Countdown. If there are any you'd like me to review catch me on Twitter or Instagram or use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown.

As always, thanks for reading...
