Our friends at Toy Mania Cotswold have stocked up on advent calendars, giving kids such a wide array of choices to count down the days until Christmas.
These are not your mother’s advent calendars! They’re so much more than pinning a miniature ornament on a little tree, or eating a piece of chocolate each day! These are daily activities that not only help build the holiday excitement, but give littles something new and fun to do each day. What a great way to work on those fine motor skills!
Toy Mania has advent calendars from LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy, where kids can build little creations like a drone, a blaster or Guardian’s spaceship on some says, and open up compartments on other days filled with miniature figures like Star-Lord, Groot or Rocket who can interact with each other and the creations they’ve built.
Toy Mania has the new GUND advent calendar this year, which features 12 miniature 4-inch pieces of plush for less than $10 each, including all their classic collectible teddy bears from over the years like Snuffles or Toothpick. They’ve got Peppa Pig and Little People advent calendars where kids can collect their favorite little figures to go with matching Christmas accessories. Or children can do fun activities every day whether it’s making bracelets or building a marble run with GraviTrax.
Head to the store between now and Friday to start your Christmas countdown! And if you’re looking to do some shopping while you’re there, check out these super helpful Smarty Holiday Toy Guides powered by Toy Mania, for gift ideas for children Ages 0-5, Ages 6-11 and for Teens and ‘Tweens.
