Win a Playmobil Advent Calendar
Advent calendars are a huge tradition in our family. Last year we ordered from Playmobil and this year we're going back to the well. The calendars mark down the days until Christmas starting on December 1st. Traditional calendars offer a Christmas scene--Playmobil gives you something extra. Toys!
That's right each day, your child will discover a new toy. Each day they will get a part from an overall scene. After 24 days, they will have a complete Playmobil scene. There are dozens available on Amazon to suit the interests of your child (Pony Ranch, Policeand so many more). This year Playmobil is adding three new Advent Calendars and we're giving away one of them!
We're giving the girls the new Christmas Post Office. It's a sweet scene with an Angel, Santa and a tree (plus 21 other items). Note: some assembly is required. You've got to sort the box and put the toys into the right compartments--give yourself an hour or so to get it ready. Each morning the girls race to the kitchen to open the appropriate window. It makes Santa's arrival that much more exciting.
