Lego releases multiple versions of its Advent Calendar each year, and this City Theme is great for kids and adults alike. As usual there are lots of fun mini-models to assemble and place on the box's play area---this is your chance to score the Husky dog found in the Arctic series. Whether you buy the City, Friends, or Star Wars version of the advent calendar set, you'll have fun counting down the days in December all the way to Christmas!This is the 2015 model from Lego---they release new advent calendars every year---but it's simply designated for days 1-24 so you could use any of the sets from year to year. To re-use the calendar, make sure you carefully pop open the perforated windows so you'll be able to re-close them for next time. Buy your set early, Lego only makes a certain amount and they sell out!
I grew up with the cheap $2 advent calendar version consisting of waxy chocolate under flimsy doors. I am so jealous of kids these days who have many more options opening to them - but the Lego Advent Calendar is especially a treat! First off, you avoid refined sugar. Happy about that. You have something you can collect each year! Happy about that. You have something you can tailor to a specific child...more or less. Happy about that! I bought two of these for my wife and I. We love the city motif and usually are able to complement some of our other sets with the daily additions of the advent. It was packaged well, and a good deal. I am excited for December to begin to start opening it day by day. As we have been collecting the City Advent for several years now, it is neat to bring them all back and set up a Lego Christmas display.
We buy these every year. Only this year I bought it early so I had it for the advent season. Each day the kids open a box and get a lego item to put together and it all goes together in a set. Very cool for lego lovers of all ages!
