I bought this at the fantastic value of £13 from Amazon while it was on offer. At age 9, my son is growing out of Playmobil, but we thought we would get an advent calendar one last time this Christmas. He's really more of a Lego fan, but we didn't find any of the Lego calendars very interesting or particularly good value. Even at full price, Playmobil gives you a lot for your money to play with.
These advent calendars are a great way to ease the long wait until Christmas. The idea is that each day you open a pocket to get a figure or accessory and by Christmas Eve you get the whole play set. We opened the first pocket this morning and my son's already looking forward to the next… Read more

I'm glad I was able to buy it at an acceptable price for my son - for now, I'll pretend it's genuine. It certainly looks the part. I notice it is now being for sold for £45 by a different seller, which is a ridiculous price to pay for just one minifigure!
I understand the market forces that make the prices go up as certain Lego sets and minifigures become collectable… Read more
