Flash Post: Countdown to Christmas


What It Is:I featured these last year as a great Find of the Month pick, so I thought it was time I check in again to see what Playmobil has in store for their annual advent calendar collections. If you haven’t seen ’em, these fun little sets let little ones unlock a new piece every day as part of a themed set that can either be enjoyed independently with the included set piece, or integrated into your entire Playmobil world. This year there are three new collections – Princess Wedding, Pirate Treasure Cove, and a Winter Wonderland Forest – meaning you can pick one to align with your giftee’s interests.

Who It’s For:Your grandkids or kids, for a sugar-free alternative to counting down the days till Santa’s arrival. Your coworker, for a daily ritual that’ll start every day of December off right, and give them desk candy for months to come. Your Playmobil-collecting sibling or spouse, as a throwback to their younger years.

What It Costs:Each set is $21.99.

Where It’s At:Check out the Playmobil site for details / retailers, or check your local fine children’s toy shop.

    My son, niece and nephew played with Playmobil when they were young. Now 20+ years later, my young nieces love it and I’m looking forward to buying it for my granddaughter when she’s old enough. Excellent play value and let’s kids use their imaginations! An excellent gift suggestion! #CGG
