Advent calendars are a fun and meaningful tradition that serve a dual purpose: They teach children about calendars, and they help to curb kiddos’ excitement for Christmas morning. Instead of complaining that it isn’t Christmas yet, they go to bed excited every night that they get to flip open another day on the calendar.
These days, advent calendars are cooler and more innovative than ever before. From whiskey advent calendars to cheese advent calendars to mini-lipstick advent calendars, there really is something for everyone. But the best one might be this awesome option: A LEGO Advent Calendar!
The LEGO Advent Calendar offers LEGO lovers of all ages the opportunity to celebrate the season with unique LEGO pieces each day, from volcano adventurers to ice-hockey players to, of course, a Santa Claus!
This special collector’s item is quickly becoming one of them most sought-after items of the holiday season. It is selling out everywhere and the price is rising, currently at $44.45 and up on Amazon.
There are even some custom LEGO Advent Calendar options as well. For example, does your kid love “Star Wars”? Well, a LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar combines three of a kid’s favorite things: LEGOs, Christmas, and “Star Wars”! The set is sold out on LEGO.com, but you can find it on Amazon from third-party sellers for $47.84 and up.
Interested in something a bit more Christmas-themed? Check out the LEGO Friends Advent Calendar. It comes with a Christmas tree, fireplace, snowman and ice skates… and even a DJ turntable and a microphone! And, yes, you guessed it: It’s a “retired product” on LEGO.com, but you can find it from third-party sellers on Amazon for $35.48 and up.
And here is one last LEGO Friends options from Amazon ($41.80), which comes with skis, a Christmas tree, and an adorable snow-mobile.
With advent calendars this cool, your kid won’t care if Christmas morning ever comes! (Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but hey… the calendars are pretty neat.)
