Many of the calendar’s contents will also complement Lego’s extensive range of Harry Potter play sets.

Star Wars fans, meanwhile, can collect an assortment of figures with a festive twist. The 12 characters, including Darth Vader (complete with a Christmas jumper) and D-O (sporting a Santa hat), are accompanied by 12 mini builds plus a foldout playmat. Featuring an image of the Millennium Falcon decked out with Christmas lights, the calendar and its contents will inspire creative play.

The Lego City calendar lets kids assemble festive scenes thanks to its seasonal builds and snowy playmat. Six minifigures are also available, including including Duke DeTain, Harl Hubbs, Freya McCloud, Rooky Partnur, Daisy ‘Kaboom’ and Chief Wheeler.

Offering three themes to enjoy – Emma’s room, Santa’s toy workshop and winter wonderland – the Friends calendar lets kids progress through each setting, building excitement as the Christmas countdown gets nearer to the big day. Fun accessories include a snowball launcher and a skateboard, which can be discovered alongside Friends minifigures.
