This is sure to add to the children's excitement as they countdown the days to Christmas, and it's a cute decoration too. Constructed entirely of wood and hand painted, the calendar measures approx, 13cm (h) x 8cm (w) x 4.5cm (d). Two numbered cubes at the foot of the fire place can be turned each day to show the number of days left until Santa climbs down the chimney. One of the cubes has the numbers 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, & 9, and the other has 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5. Therefore, the cubes allow continuous countdown from 29 to 0, which means the countdown can start at around 26th November.
