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.
