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.

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!
