Which advent calendars are you buying?


I've just ordered my lb the Thomas minis one from Asda. He LOVES his minis so it was a no brainer really! But I'm a bit stuck for my DD, she is 5 and I need to get her something that has little gifts in it too. I've looked at the smiggle one on their site but it doesn't show what's inside them. Has anyone had one? Are they good and worth the money? Or does anyone have any ideas what else I could be looking at?

She loves MLP but I don't like the look of the advent calendar because she's already got some of the bits that are in it.

TIA X

I've seen a mini princess animator one for 24.99 advertised in the disney store, but it hasn't been released yet - and I can't see it on the website yet either. I've thought about this one. I was going to get a playmobil one, but I've bought too much playmobil already! I made one a couple of years ago with little pockets, so may just fill this one again.

EDIT found a picture

Probably get my girls a playmobil/Lego friends one each. They had one playmobil one between them last yr (my mum bought it for them to share) and it was brilliant so I know they will get played with loads

Tulip girl thank you for that. I've not seen it, will have to keep an eye open for it when it's released and see exactly what's included in it.
I did think about a lego or play mobil one also but she's not really into either if them so not sure she would be very excited or play with them

I'm getting dd1 the Playmobil Royal ice skating one this year. I got her a different playmobil one a couple of years ago and she loved it.

I don't know what to get for dd2. She'll only be nearly 2, so I might not bother at all, as she probably won't get it. But it'll mean hiding dd1's out of sight or she won't be happy!

I'm sticking with chocolate this year. Last few years I've bought expensive ones and they lose their novelty quickly with my boys, the chocolate ones always end up being the fave so just doing that this year. I'm still getting the Lush one mind ��

I'm so traditional - chocolate calendars only and they have to have a Christmas picture they aren't allowed novelty or character ones. I always used to buy dairy milk but they changed them recently and they are to cartoon-ish for me now

I just get her a chocolate one. Never bothered with the expensive toy ones. I had thought of making my own or buying one of those wooden advent trains so they basically last for years but i never do. Mostly cause i know all my DD Is interested in is having a piece of chocolate at like 8am!!!

I got the minis one last year for my son who was full on obsessed with Thomas and a Frozen toy one for my daughter. Well my son's almost year-long obsession with Thomas ended a couple of weeks after Christmas and the bits from the Frozen one were gone within a day or two... I'm sticking with chocolate ones this year!
