Wooden Musical Advent Calendar Initial thoughts: This advent calendar is in the shape of a house with 24 little doors, and has a musical snowflake which you need to wind up.  It looks well made and is very colourful. The children couldn’t wait to have a good look at it and open and shut the little doors.

We liked: The calendar had a lovely handmade feel to it and we loved the musical snowflake which is wound up with a key.  It plays ‘O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!’ for at least five minutes which strangely isn’t that annoying and soon had us humming along.

We weren’t keen: It was difficult to think of anything.  The only tiny minus point is that the calendar’s base is quite thin which means it falls over if two small children decide to argue over who is going to look at it or wind it up.  Keeping it up on the fireplace out of reach solved this problem easily enough.

Overall: Now all I need to do is learn the words to O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! and find 48 things small enough for each of the little doors (that’s 24 treats x2 children!).  It’s a really attractive calendar which will be used for years to come.  The children love it, as do I!
