Playmobil NHL Advent CalendarThursday, November 24, 2016
One year, I had purchased a princess themed Playmobil Advent Calendar for my daughter. It was a great alternative to the typical Advent calendar filled with chocolates and, once Advent was over, she would have a complete Playmobil set to play with. It had a pretty white horse, a pink unicorn, peacocks, bluebirds, a garden filled with flowers, a large bird cage and a beautiful water fountain. One of the princesses even had her own parasol. The attention to detail was remarkable and my daughter loved this set so much, we used this Advent calendar for many years.
This year, we have a brand new calendar to help us count down to Christmas. Just in time for the World Cup of Hockey, Playmobil's new NHL Advent Calendar "Rivalry On The Pond" is sure to be a hit this season. The backdrop for this scene is a frozen pond in the great outdoors. Setting up the background was a cinch and the skate marks on the pond make it look all the more realistic. With Santa as referee, players can actually pass the puck to fellow team members.
This advent calendar contains twenty-four surprise items for each day leading up to Christmas. Once all the pieces are revealed, children can enjoy their own mini NHL game. The compartments are easy to open, which means this will last even longer than our first Playmobil Advent calendar that used individual boxes that had to be assembled each year. This will definitely become a best-seller this season so grab one while you can. They are listed at $39.99 and can be found at most retail stores and independent toy stores.
