Count down to Christmas with brand new PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendars!

PiratePLAYMOBIL’s range of beautiful advent calendars returns for 2013, with two brand new scenes to ensure little ones wake up with a smile every day in the run-up to Christmas. A fantastic, longer lasting alternative to chocolate, boys and girls can create a stunning scene, piece by piece, as they excitedly count down to Christmas Day. Young animal lovers can enjoy festive farmyard fun with the Pony Farm Advent Calendar, while budding crime fighters can lock up the baddies with the Police themed advent, both new for this Christmas. Adventurers can look forward to Christmas on the high seas with the Pirates Treasure Cove, a royal celebration with the Princess Wedding, or join Father Christmas and friends in Winter Wonderland. Behind each of the 24 windows is a magical surprise to add to the scene, finishing with a glorious set on Christmas Eve to provide hours of fun-filled, creative play.
