I am SO glad to have found this post! I purchased an advent calendar for my son yesterday and had NO idea Playmobil has advent calendars! I will absolutely be purchasing the “Christmas in the Forest” calendar.
I know which advent calendar they will prefer, by a long way, the Playmobil one. Every single year Playmobil advent calendars have been quite a focal point of excitement in our house with the children running downstairs at the crack of dawn to open the door to reveal another part of their new toy. The days when they get an animal or a new figure have proved the most exciting. To be honest, I’m really excited by them and seeing a little scene slowly build up on my mantelpiece fills me with happy thoughts.
First up we have the new Playmobil police Advent Calendar which is definitely going to appeal to children who love life in the fast lane. Children who love to imagine that the robbers have snuck off with all the gold, and that they are the police scrambling into action, hot on their tails.
I really don’t know where the time has gone! One minute it was summer and now its not long till Christmas. With these thoughts in mind I’ve been on the hunt for ideas for advent calendars for each of the children. I’m really lucky as I get ahead start as we get to try out a new Playmobil Advent calendar each year in our role as Playologists. That means we have a guaranteed brilliant fun advent calendar and I can be a bit mean and make something myself as well which makes them think a little about the religious meaning of Christmas. I think I’m going to write some little poems, tasks and activities for them.
