Countdown to Christmas With a Playmobil Advent Calendar
One year when my kids were little, their Oma gave them a Playmobil Advent Calendar. This had to be the exciting HIT of the Season. Imagine, every day, a box containing a little Playmobil part would be opened (they took turns… ) and the piece would be added to the scene that was developing on the side table in the family room. When Christmas Eve rolled around, the scene was complete… and the kids were happy to be able to play with the whole set until it was time to box it up for the following year.

What is an Advent calendar
For those of you not familiar with the concept, an Advent Calendar is a way of counting down the days in December until Christmas Eve. The idea was created by a German mother with an excited child who just COULDN’T WAIT until Christmas! Instead of reminding every day how much longer he had to wait, she devised a calendar of little boxes, and into each one went a piece of Lebkuchen or Gingerbread. This small daily treat helped track the days, and sweetened the wait time. Today, Advent Calendars come in many different styles… from the traditional cardboard with pictures or chocolates behind each door… to wooden calendars with drawers containing treats… to the very fun Playmo Advent Calendars made with 24 little boxes, each containing a part of a winter or holiday scene.
Playmobil Advent Calendar
My kids (a boy and two girls) managed to share their Playmo Advent Calendar (it helped that they also each had a chocolate Advent Calendar to sweeten the days that it wasn’t their turn to open a box). Still… if that will be an issue, maybe it’s best to get one for each.
Also, keep in mind… After the Season, I would put each piece back into the correctly numbered box (so don’t throw away the instructions!!) so it could be used again the next year. If you would rather let the kids incorporate these Playmobil toys into the other Playmobil sets… go ahead… just don’t expect to ever be able to find them again when it’s time to set up next year’s Advent Calendar. It’s a personal choice.
