5.0 out of 5 stars Lego City Advent Calendar - Better than Chocolate, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lego City 7553: Advent Calendar (Toy)
I bought this for an avid Lego fan (our son aged 11). It went down a lot better than a selection box and what is more, certainly more playable with. The figures are so cute and the dinky looking dog, think that was my favourite of all. Now this is the City range but like all Lego themed ones you can reuse these figures in any other combinations you wish (a couple of the are already sitting in a camper van as I type this up). You do not have to be a child to play with this Advent calendar just have some imagination and anything can be made.

Lots of different mini figures that are contained in a cardboard cutout advent calendar. Yes I did think that maybe the box could have been better designed, as it soon gets a dog eared look about it with it being just that cardboard. I suppose that if the box was made of plastic or such the price would go up, but at the end of the day it is not just the packaging but the mini figures that you buy it for. And the guessing of which figure it may be hiding behind which door.

But compared to buying lots of mini figures it works out cheaper and a lot more healthier to the teeth than chocolate. Plus the fun of guessing what is what is half the fun too.

I did the stupid thing though of making it a Christmas present. Should have made it an early one then the days could have be opened like a traditional advent calendar, rather than son wanting to start on Christmas Day then having to open all the previous day ones. So best to give it as an early December the 1st present.

I would buy another one but in a different range next time as son knows what is in this one so not as big surprise.
