Know a kid who loves a big reveal?

From the first day of Advent or the first day of December, curious kids can open one door each day to reveal a fun toy or in some cases, a sweet treat! The top toy Advent calendars are designed to build to a big finish, with each item or buildable toy becoming part of a festive play set or diorama. This surprise-a-day Christmas calendar format is a cool activity to share on social media as kids reveal each toy! It’s also a unique exercise in delayed gratification – it’s so much fun to anticipate the big reveal each day (hopefully kids can resist the temptation to break all the doors down in one go!) and to build the excitement leading up to the festive end-result. In particular, the Playmobil Advent Calendar and the many varieties of LEGO Advent Calendars have a cool creative element, too, as kids have to build many of the daily toys for the final play set.

Prepare to celebrate with kids’ faves!

Dial up the excitement and anticipation of the holidays with top-selling tea advent calendar built around your kids’ favourite movies, shows, series and characters! Preschoolers will be thrilled to reveal a surprise pup or rescue accessory each day in their PAW Patrol Advent calendar! Hockey fans will love opening a door each day to find what sporty surprise awaits in their Playmobil Advent calendar featuring NHL toys. And builder-kids of all kinds will enjoy the daily mystery of LEGO Advent Calendars from their favourite series: droids and spacecraft in the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar; pets and pals in the LEGO Friends Advent Calendar; magical creatures and characters in the LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar; and fun Christmas stocking filler village accessories in the LEGO City Advent Calendar. There’s a cool Christmas countdown calendar for Barbie fans, crafty kids, dinosaur devotees, and many other fandoms! The final play set, diorama or craft often makes fun Christmas countdown décor.

It's all about anticipation

Advent calendars are a wonderful way to build excitement for the winter holidays – for the whole family. Grownups can help play up the suspense and document the daily reveal and share pics and reels on social media, or privately and directly with friends and family they may be unable to be with over the holidays. Older kids can even create cool videos over the course of the holiday countdown, building to the big day and later using the impressive final toy play set or décor piece. It’s a fun way to spark kids’ imaginations and pose creative challenges!
