Farm Advent Calendar Reviewed

Count Down To Christmas With Playmobil

Do you plan to help a child count down to Christmas this year with an Advent Calendar? Are you looking for one that would be great for the younger members of your family? There are so many options available with so many different themes. I have found one that I feel is pretty practical because your child or children can play with it after the Christmas holiday is over. 

Many traditional Advent Calendars offer small little chocolate gifts as the days before Christmas are counted down. Those are nice and you can use them each year if you just replenish the little hiding places with new and fresh candies. 

I would like to recommend an Advent Calendar that children can enjoy and learn about the animals on the farm, too. Children love little toys and they love animals so why not combine the two while teaching them to count as they wait for the Jolly Old Elf to arrive?

What I love about this cute little play set is that it is also an advent calendar and the figures can all be played with after Christmas. They can be added to any Playmobil sets that your child may already have. Wonderful little animals that can be found on a farm like sheep, goats, cows and chickens. As each of the 24 days before Christmas approach the child opens one little window to reveal some of the pieces. By the time Christmas Eve arrives they will have 72 pieces to play with.

Families have been using advent calendars since the 1800's. It is a tradition enjoyed by many and each year brings wonderful selections for the family to count down the days with. I think this calendar set is a nice alternative to the food ones and is perfect for the younger family members to enjoy.

How about you? Does your family use an advent calendar?

  1. I've always loved Advent calendars myself and this one is absolutely adorable! I can well imagine any child would love the Playmobile Advent calendar. I know my children would have loved it when they were toddlers.

  2. Oh, my, we loved Playmobil toys when my boys were young. What a fabulous version of an advent calendar. We have a countdown calendar that we've had for many years. The boys used to take turns moving the mouse each morning - no candy, no other particular incentive. They would have loved this Playmobil advent idea much better!

  3. We had a handmade advent calendar my college roommate made for my first born child and we used it all throughout childhood for all three children. This PLaymobil advent calendar is a wonderful idea for small children - combining a toy with a countdown-to-Christmas calendar! Lovely idea.

  5. What a fun advent calendar - we have a fabric one that we hang on my daughter's door each year and I buy little things throughout the year to fill it.
