A Christmas Countdown

Another great product from this trusted brand

The Melissa and Doug toy company has a long history of putting creativity and education back in play. The company makes high quality and engaging toys that encourage kids to use their imaginations. No bells, no whistles, no batteries, just simple fun.

The countdown to Christmas Advent calendar is another great product from this trusted company. The package contains 26 pieces. A sturdy tree shape, 24 ornaments, and a golden star. The items all fit together in the base. The base then holds the ornaments waiting for placement on the tree. The tree is bright and cheerful enough to add to any rooms holiday decor but compact enough to fit on a small shell. The tree is affordable enough to fit any budget.

Each morning kids countdown the days by adding another ornament to the tree. The excitement builds with each passing day. Bright ornaments made of durable materials to stand up to rough little fingers. Christmas arrives to a completely decorated tree topped with a golden star.

Why is this product great?

There are no bells, no whistles, no moving parts, and no batteries. This item helps put simple pleasure back into the joy of counting down to the holiday with little ones.

This countdown to advent calendar is durable and made to withstand little ones. You will bring this back out year after year. It will survive all those drops, and bumps that destroy fragile holiday decorations.

Kids get to choose from a variety of ornaments as they decorate the Christmas tree with each passing day. Brightly colored and cute enough to keep kids engaged. Kids can’t wait to pick another ornament to place on the tree marking off yet another day. Kids learn about numbers as they count down the days. Families build bonds and memories as they look forward to decorating their tree. A heartwarming poem adds to the finishing touches. Kids and adults will both love spending time together adding decorations to the tree.

Just so you know

The product is intended for children ages 3 to 7. The small magnets make it a choking hazard for kids under the age of 3.

The Final Score

This product gets 4 stars.

I didn’t give it 5 stars because of issues with weak magnets and sticker peeling near the edges on the tree.

This great holiday advent calendar is available at your favorite stores!
