This is the first year that we have got Erin proper advent calendars. Last year we made her a book advent as she was a bit too young for chocolate really and I wanted to do something that she would get use out of for a long time. This year Erin has 2 Paw Patrol advent calendars but also the VTech Toot-Toot Animals Advent Calendar. We’ve bought her a few Toot-Toot sets for Christmas so we thought this would be a nice littler starter for her to see if she likes it. At £24.99, this is a more expensive advent calendar than the average one filled with chocolate but there’s so much more in it.
The Toot-Toot Animals Advent Calendar comes in a pretty big box so you’ll need a good place to hide it before 1st December. However, I loved that the box looked so exciting and it was really festive and fun as well. The front of the box pulls down to reveal a play scene which you can use with everything inside the advent calendar. You also get one smart point which means any Toot-Toot toys will work with it. This is only something simple but it means the whole advent calendar can be played with more.
The advent calendar includes 24 play pieces and you can see what is inside on the back of the box. If you want to have a quick look at the advent calendar check out the video below. I purposely didn’t open all of boxes because even though I know what is inside, I want each day to be a surprise.
