Win a Playmobil Advent Calendar

 

It’s no secret that we’re big Playmobil fans round these parts.

I’ve been lucky enough to meet one of the founders of the company on a visit to the Playmobil HQ in Germany, and Flea has been a Playmobil playologist for the last two years, which has involved trying out loads of Playmobil sets. Her top recommendations from 2012 can be found over on her blog, Flea Reads.

This week, we were sent a Playmobil advent calendar.

Now, as it happens, we bought our own Playmobil advent calendar back when Flea was three and we love bringing it out each year. You can get advent calendars from Playmobil with pirate or fairy themes, but we’re old school – our advent calendar allows Flea to build a lovely winter scene over 24 days, featuring cute animals, snow-laden trees, a working music box and Father Christmas himself.

The calendar works in a fairly simple way – you hang a stiff cardboard backing onto the wall, and there are 24 collapsible cardboard boxes that hook onto the backing – each containing one or two small items that can be added to a scene background, which sits comfortably on a shelf in your home. The whole thing is quite sturdy – ours is four years old and still completely intact – but there are a few spare boxes in case of accidents, and you can buy replacement parts, too.

This year, Playmobil sent us a new Christmas scene advent calendar but we’re still very attached to ours, so I’m giving this brand new one away to one of my readers. This set features Santa, an angel, and lots of little woodland creatures. It’s recommended for children aged 4+, because of small parts.

How to Enter

If you’d like to win, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me your favourite Christmas carol, and I’ll pick one winner at random on November 16th at 5pm. The calendar will be posted to you in time to use this December (UK residents only, please!). Use the Rafflecopter widget to register your comment, and there are bonus entries to be had, too.

Rules: One entry per person; entries made via automated or online services will be disqualified; users must provide an email address so I can contact you; winner will be contacted by email; in the event the winner cannot be reached in 48 hours, the prize may be re-allocated; competition open to UK residents only; prize will be dispatched using a recorded post service.Β 

Good luck!

    Although in some ways it’s terribly twee, I think mine is Away in a Manger – because one of the few things I remember about my grandmother is her singing it to me. I’m still word perfect πŸ˜‰

    It has to be β€˜O Little Town Of Bethlehem’. Always brings back the memories of my school carol service and how I would feel that sense of anticipation and excitement that Christmas was only a few days away. Now I get the same buzz when I take my daughter to her carol service.

    Thanks Sally – the calendar looks great but we’ll be sticking to our traditional “build a manger” type nativity calandar too. Whilst the lego, playmobil and other yummy chocolate (Hotel Chocolat one in particualr) ones look fab, paying vast amounts of money just seems silly for a calendar and to me personally, bares little relation to what Christmas is really about. To me a calendar is about counting down to Christmas and enjoying a picture of a pretty bauble, shepherd or angel. It’s about that rush my brother and I used to do down the stairs to see what picture we got today and finding that blasted little door!

    Still, looks fun though πŸ™‚

    Reply
    • Sally

      I see your point – I’m not a fan of the themed LEGO advents as – to me – they’re nothing to do with Christmas. But this calendar (and the one we own) is all about Christmas and includes a Father Christmas, an angel, and lots of Christmassy-details – as for ridiculous money, the calendar costs Β£17, which given ours is about to used for its fifth year makes it pretty good value for money in my book!

      Reply
      • Nikki

        I agree re Β£17 if you can use and re-use year after year, but I know my kids would take the figures out and play with them and the calendar part would be forgotten and most likely not used again. I do like that the Playmobile one is Christmas themed though πŸ™‚

        Reply
        • Sally

          To be fair, you could say that about any advent set – don’t your children want to play with the nativity figures? I do love this set – considering we’ve had it since Flea was 3, and we’ve not lost a single piece or box, and it gets used every year, I think they’re a great buy.

          Reply
          • Nikki

            My two LOVE figures – normally character ones though – e.g. Harry Potter figures or little lego ones that they can change the bodies and heads on lol. It’s not the re-using thing that frustrates me (frankly I love to see my two creating games and scenes using their imagination) and I like that the playmobile figures are at least Christmas characters, but it’s the getting a toy a day type thing. It’s unlikely that they would be able to put these figures back into the calendar to take out next year – or am I wrong? Maybe one could put them aside and into a storage type calendar with boxes for each day (?!).

            I guess I’m just harking back to my days as a child when just opening the door to see and appreciate the picture was the thrill and trying not to over comercialise it – Christmas = every day treats and more….

            Do you know what I mean? Maybe I’m just old fashioned and tight LOL.

    My favourite carol is “O Little Town of Bethlehem”.

    I bought a Playmobil advent calendar for the geekdaughter a couple of years ago, but it was clearly an inferior one as it didn’t come with any little boxes and certainly wasn’t reuseable. I like the idea of being able to bring the same calendar out year after year, it’s like setting a new tradition πŸ™‚

    In the past, I’ve been called pretentious for liking this but I love the Coventry Carol. No, it’s not one we’ll all be singing, and being based on the story of Herod’s massacre of the innocents, it’s a bit ‘heavy’ for some people. But it’s more than 500 years old. And to me, it’s always felt like a connection with the past, and that’s something Christmas ought to do.

    Our families favourite Christmas carol is We Three Kings, even if the childrens version can sometimes be different to the original πŸ˜‰

    I *love* Christmas carols… Not sure if Guadete counts as a Christmas carol, but it’s definitely my favourite.. Otherwise, I’m with the innocence of Away in a Manger – particularly now Moo has started singing it!

    Little Donkey has become my favourite this year as my nearly 4 year old now know all the words. I can’t wait for Christmas so he can sing it for everyone.

    My favourite is a little unconventional. When we were children my mum had a cassette (which was then replaced with a CD) with a story on it that was sung, Whoops-A-Daisy Angel. It was about a very clumsy angel and it came out every Christmas for us to listen to on our way to school. I can probably still sing you every word to the main song “Whoops-A-Daisy Angel”.

    If I had to choose a conventional song it would be O Little Town Of Bethlehem, my sisters and I often used to put on our own four person nativity on Christmas day, complete with programmes and hymn sheets for the oldies. This is the hymn I always chose to play (badly) on my recorder/clarinet.

    My favourite is ‘Oh little town of Bethlehem’ for sure. It reminds me of carol services at school.
    I love the Playmobile advent calendar but I am a bit of a stickler for traditional, magical christmas scenes with nativity and Father Christmas. Just found great company for traditional advent calendars and cards- orchardcards.
