Playmobil Pony Ranch Advent Calendar

Submitted by on November 1, 2010 – 8:26 pmNo Comment

We love the Playmobil Pony Ranch advent Calendar and can’t wait until the 1st December so we can start opening the boxes.  No more chocolate advent calendars for us!

Initial Thoughts: I’ve never seen a Playmobil Advent calendar before and to be honest, I didn’t even realise that they made them but as soon as we saw ours we were BIG fans.  We got the Pony Ranch calendar, which is ideal as my eight year old is horse mad.  Her eyes lit up the moment she saw it and instead of counting the days until Christmas Day, she’s counting the days until she can open her first box.

We liked: As you’d expect from Playmobil, the quality is excellent and I’m really surprised by the number of items that the calendar contains.  We love that it comes with a cardboard scene to organise your items in and I like the way that Playmobil have spread out the bigger items throughout the month so one day you might get a horse and another day you might get a few smaller items (there’s even a rat in there!).

We weren’t keen : There’s no getting away from the fact that it’s more expensive than your usual chocolate advent calendar but in all fairness, it’s much more fun than one of those and you get something to keep at the end of it.

Overall : Now that I know Playmobil make advent calendars, I can see that the usual chocolate advent calendar just isn’t going to cut it any more.  To me, it’s worth the extra money and as there’s a theme to suit any child (police, unicorns dragons and a more traditional Christmas version).  I’d highly recommend these calendars to for any children between the ages of four and eight – they’ll have hours of fun with the gifts for a long time to come.
