Be Rid of Chocolate This Holiday Season – Do Advent Calendars a New Way With Playmobil

adventtitle

Every December 1st for as long as I can remember we’d get the Advent Calendar’s from the store that allowed us to open a little window, with the date each day of December to count down until the big day, Christmas.

As a kid I loved it and you couldn’t get away with not getting me this calendar. My mom was pretty good about always having it there for me before the 1st but since my kids were born I’ve had trouble having them for them. Not because I forget, but because they just aren’t like they used to be. I remember the chocolate being so good, and I would sneak into other days, open them and take the chocolate out then close the little door again so no one knew I had taken it. When those days rolled around, I would act shocked and upset because how dare they forget to put a chocolate on that date! I think my mom caught on after the first year, but she never let on she did. I was thrilled with my little chocolate calendar so she didn’t say anything.

When my kids were all born, and were old enough to do the calendars they would share with mom. I was a little disgusted to be honest at how bad the chocolate tasted. It tasted like cardboard! I mean, I get they can’t put gourmet chocolate into these little advent calendars but seriously, cardboard tasting chocolate? Isn’t good! So I stopped buying them for my kids.

This year, we are doing something a little different! Thanks to Playmobil we can change it up a bit, and still do a Advent Calendar but this time the surprise isn’t chocolate, it’s an item for a new play set! Talk about awesome. There are 6 play sets to choose from.

This year we are excited to have been given Fire Rescue Operation and Dress Up Party! My kids have been begging for weeks now to open them and play with them, but we are waiting until December 1st to open them and play.

I am so glad there are other options out there that are fun, and will get kids excited to countdown but also that don’t contain chocolate. Not only does the chocolate taste like cardboard, but it also isn’t good for their teeth and we really try to limit the amount of chocolate the kids eat, especially because I used to steal chocolate from upcoming days I know my kids would too and too much chocolate, isn’t always a good thing!

Whether your child loves hockey or prefers to play dress-up, these unique calendars are sure to peak each child’s interests.
