Parent’s should worry because it comes with detailed instructions you’ll need for each experiments. The advent calendar does come with an age rating, so shouldn’t be given to kids that are younger than 8 years old, for obvious reasons.

Perhaps the all time best advent calendar for kids?

A Christmas advent calendar for kids list wouldn’t be worth the paper it’s written on if it doesn’t include Super Mario! And that’s exactly what we’re including here.

This calendar contains 26 individual items which means on some days you’ll get more than one item behind the 24 doors.

It features classic characters from the Super Mario Universe. If you’re kid hasn’t been exposed to the world of Mario it’s the perfect chance to do just that.

Each figurine is extremely well made as are the accessories. They’re heavy, durable, and are true to the character designs. Because of this high quality the price is slightly higher than average children’s advent calendar. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Don’t throw the box away either, as it forms part of the scene, should you wish to use it for that.

I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to add something by Pokemon to this article. Pokemon is loved by people of all ages and in particular, kids. It’s got everything kids could ever want in a toy. Fun characters, great interactivity and above all, allows them to use their imagination.

There are a bunch of different Pokemon Holiday Calendars so make sure you choose one that’s right for you. But, I think the 2022 Holiday Calendar is the best of the bunch.

Your kid will get a surprise behind each of the 24 doors. And, as with others on this list, don’t throw the box away as it does make up apart of the scene. Some of the parts are quite small, make sure you don’t leave kids unsupervised with them. It’s suitable for kids aged 4 and up.

Creative Construction

Your child will absolutely love this advent calendar. Perfect for budding builders and construction workers, I’d have loved this one as a kid. It features a whole range of different construction vehicles.

Aswell as this, you’ll get a play mat so your kid can set the scene and really allow imaginative play to take hold.

This advent calendar contains 24 different types of construction trucks, with each truck being crafted with excellent attention to detail and quality.

There are a few duplicate designs but it makes for a fun and interesting game, match up all the same trucks.

The possibilities for unique games are almost endless.
