The best advent calendars for kids this Christmas: LEGO City Advent Calendar – 60155 {£24.99}

We love the look of the LEGO City Advent Calendar which has six collectable mini figures along with plenty of vehicles to build for each day of December until Christmas. Once you’ve collected the 24 toys you can unfold the play-mat to create your own fun Christmas LEGO scene.

 

The best advent calendars for kids this Christmas: Nutcracker charm bracelet Advent Calendar {£22.99}

I love this Nutcracker charm bracelet advent calendar from Meri Meri. It comes with a bracelet and then each day a new Christmas themed charm to put on it. This is such a special advent calendar, really beautiful and different and with something to keep year after year. Watch out, this one sells out fast.

The best advent calendars for kids this Christmas: Advent Calendar Railway by Meri Meri {£21.44}

This advent calendar from Meri Meri is a real family favourite, building each day to make a wintry railway scene which you will want to get out year after year.

With the pieces in a North Pole station presentation drawer box, this set makes a really attractive Christmas centre-piece and will be something the children will remember.  The set also comes with a soft cloth bag to keep the pieces safe.

This is a set which really works as family advent calendar and is a great alternative to chocolates and toys if you’re looking for something a little different which will last for many years.

The WOW Toys advent calendar is positively filled to the brim with great toddler and pre-school friendly toys. Every day there’s a new toy to play with, making up a whole play set creating a winter wonderland scene.
