Did you know there was a Playmobil Advent Calendar?  We certainly didn’t until we received the Dress Up Party Playmobil Advent Calendar to review as part of our role as a #PLAYMOBILPlayologist.  What we also didn’t know is there is a whole range of exciting non chocolate advent calendars in the range suitable for boys and girls, no matter what they love.

Playmobil Advent Calendar Review

There are Christmas themed advent calendars, Fire Rescue Operation, Pirates or Farm related sets to choose from so if you are looking for something a bit different for your child this year, then this could definitely be the answer.

Playmobil Advent Calendar Dress Up Party

Our Dress Up Party Advent Calendar came with 24 boxes for us to open.  Each box contains a different Playmobil toy related to the theme.  Parents can see what toys are included in each compartment on the box cover, but this can be removed so that the children don’t know what the surprise is going to be.

The Playmobil Advent Calendar also comes with a 3D play scene to add your toys to and bring them to life for role and imaginative play.  You can also add your Playmobil to existing to sets you have for extra play options.

If you are looking for a non chocolate Christmas Advent calendar for children, I have to admit I think this is a great option.  It’s great value for money at £19.99 and builds to a fantastic Playmobil toy collection.  If you are planning on buying Playmobil sets for your child for Christmas this would be a fantastic way to build it up.

The girls loved opening all the boxes to find out which toy they got with each box.  The quality and range of toys they received was also great, just proving to us that Playmobil are without a doubt one of the best manufacturers of preschool toys.  The attention to detail is amazing, and something that the kids really love.

We received the Playmobil Advent Calendar in exchange for this review, but all thoughts and opinions are our own. 


  1. We are thinking of going down this route this year, instead of chocolate, had considered playmobile, having seen this its definitely the one to go for, thanks

  2. A lot of companies seem to be doing this at the moment, which I suppose is a good thing as kids eat enough chocolate at this time of year as it is!

  3. This is a fantastic gift idea for any child, love the fact that you can view the contents before hand and then discard, makes a change from the usual chocolate calendars and keeps the child more on their toes.

  4. That’s a great idea. Very good that they included a way of checking what’s inside without necessarily removing the element of surprise, too.
