PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars!
There really is nothing like the excitement around the holidays. Especially with kids, they literally countdown the days until the big guy arrives and I don’t blame them. Growing up, we always had chocolate advent calendars and while the treat was delicious–it was gone pretty quickly. PLAYMOBIL has created six Advent Calendars that keep on giving.
Mimi and Gabby are counting down to Christmas with PLAYMOBIL NHL® Advent Calendar – Rivalry on the Pond and PLAYMOBIL ‘Dress Up Party’ Advent Calendar and they are beyond stoked. You can get other sets PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar sets like ‘Christmas on the Farm,’ PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar ‘Pirate Treasure Island,’ PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar ‘Fire Rescue Operation’ and PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 Advent Calendar ‘Christmas in the Forest.’ They are all so much fun!
Get Ready for Anticipation.
Every year, the girls have a chocolate advent calendar and while it is tradition, it doesn’t get the ‘ooh-ahh’ moments that we hope for. They appreciate them of course but, when I showed them these advent calendars they were over the moon. The only request was if they could open more than one at once. That is the only problem you will run into! Not to mention, they are toys that they can play with all-year round!
Mimi loved being able to have her own dressing room and she looked forward to playing with the dresses and figurines. Oh, the dresses! She is an avid collector of PLAYMOBIL and her anticipation for December is palpable. Gabs is my sporty girl and she loved the chance to play hockey on the pond and who doesn’t love Santa for ref? Seriously.

I think the adventure of a swashbuckling pirate is something that any kid loves to bring to life. Gabby has been having so much fun with her PLAYMOBIL Pirates set. The set is incredible, what I love about PLAYMOBIL is their intricate attention to detail. You’ll find a secret buccaneer hideout at the Pirate Treasure Island that is well fortified with a functioning cannon, hidden trapdoor, and rock fall booby-trap to ward off any unwanted visitors. Hidden buttons on the rock archway can trigger either the rock fall to rain down stones on unsuspecting ships or the trapdoor to send intruders down into the cave cell.
Don’t forget, you can get a ‘Pirate Treasure Island’ advent calendar, too!
More About the Set:
This island is a home for pirate crews, so enemies beware! Stash all the pirate treasure in the secret cave behind the waterfall to prevent its discovery. Set includes three pirate figures, rowboat, rocky island with adjustable landscape, hidden cell, booby-traps, room with functioning cannon, campfire, swords, map, treasure chest with treasure, and tons of other accessories.
Let the Countdown Begin!
One lucky Whispered Inspirations reader will win a PLAYMOBIL ‘Rivalry at the Pond’ Advent Calendar! This contest opens on November 26th, 2016 and ends on December 11th, 2016.
You may not be able to use it for this December but, they still make a great gift to give. Believe me, the excitement of opening each little door is effective any time of the year.
