VTech Animals Advent Calendar // Calendar Countdown


- Featuring 24 fun play pieces including a cute 'Toot-Toot Animals' SmartPoint™ reindeer and a baby reindeer playing 3 Christmas songs, 6 festive melodies and responds to SmartPoint™ locations with different phrases and sound effects. A role play husky, polar bear and penguin, Christmas decorations, a Christmas tree and lots more surprises await behind the calendar doors. The box panel folds down to become a 'Toot-Toot Animals' play area so you can create a 'Toot-Toot Animals' Christmas world.

How is it different to last years?

Other than a few design and animal changes this is very similar to the advent they released last year. Keeping the same smart point characters as the reindeer and it's baby was a little disappointing to see. I know it's a Christmas advent and great for first time buyers but for children that had this the year before they get the same items that take up most of the contents price. Would be ideal to find a way to be able to swap out the characters.

Is it worth the price?

At £25.00, the same as last year and as the other Toot-Toot advents this is worth the money to a first time buyer, but if your child had this last year I'd check out the friends and vehicles advents toot toot has released this year. These all work with other toot toot ranges so if it's a new toy to your child wants to get into, starting with the advent will show whether it's worth investing in building the collection. 

What do you think about the repeated reindeer and baby figures? Would this be an advent your child would like?

I am doing another month of #CalendarCountdown, I'd love to know what you think of all the different advents and you can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. Use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown if you have one of these advents or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
