At the time I am writing this, we are getting ever closer to Christmas. That means when we hit December 1st, all the children are going to want an advent calendar to count down the days until Christmas Day. There is always a boatload of these calendars available, at least here in Sweden, and picking one was always the hardest part of celebrating Christmas when I was a child. It wasn’t because there weren’t enough good ones available, but because there were simply too many that always poked at my attention. I usually went with a chocolate advent calendar that was connected to a TV show.
However, today things are a bit different, and kids are no longer amused by the simple images in a calendar. We need to bring them something a little bit more creative. Lego has the solution to all our problems this year as they have put together and made available the awesome Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar. And let me tell you, it’s off the hook. Each day until Christmas Day, you or your kids will get a mini build or character from the Star Wars series.
It’s a sure way to keep you kids activated and creative while at the same time building something awesome that they can play with on Christmas Day. They will have the complete set by that special day, and as they say, it’s the journey to the goal that is the most fun. I bet that is exactly the case with this calendar as well. Who wouldn’t want to add a piece each day to the epic battle that pretty much everyone in the civilized world has seen or heard of at least once? It’s just badass! Don’t you think?
