Do your children have an advent calendar? If so, what kind? Do they enjoy them? Mine has a Lego one and thinks it’s great – personally, I prefer these over food treat ones.

  • Yes of course they are a treat traditional

  • Mine have the Freddo Frog one. Get a different flavour each day.

  • i have done them before but not this year.

  • My daughter has always had an advent calender and loves the small chocolate treats each day. Unfortunately, we forgot to buy one for this past Christmas.

  • My children aged 20, 19, 18, 15 and 9 all have advent calendars… i dont know when or if i’ll stop buying them for my kids, i guess its become a tradition…

  • The Lego’s Advent calendars are really cute. The Smiggle ones too. But I find them too expensive.

  • We decided on a cheap ones for our three kids, imagine the upset if one got a cooler toy while the others just got chocolate. I would love to hear of the mums who purchased the expensive calanders( the ones that have both chocolate and toys in them) to see if its worth the cost next year.

  • Wow , never heard of a Lego one . Yes. My daughter insisted on having one and asked me to buy the Freddo frog one for $10 and she bought her brother one for $2 ( he didn’t really care. ) . Well, I wouldn’t mind having the body shop one , but it is $129 , and the exclusive one is $199 , so maybe , just maybe I will get one after Xmas if I have some funds left lol . Hope you find your favourite !!

  • yes, they have lego ones and they love them!

  • Oh mom93821! What a great idea to have an advent calendar for adults too!!! :-)

  • We have chocolate ones and everybody that can chooses their own calendar.

  • Everybody has an advent calendar in this household – all ages! :)

  • I have a wooden Advent calendar I bought in Coles and I put a small treat in each drawer.

  • I have a set of small cloth stockings, numbered, and each year the “elves” put a message in each with something to do the next day…. From “choose a gift for the giving tree” to “pick a treat to enjoy tomorrow”.

  • I didn’t buy them for the first time this year. But I will next year. My kids were so disappointed, and they are 17 and 20!!!!
