Playmobil to launch new advent calendar range

Published on: 30th August 2017

This Christmas, Playmobil is providing a range of new advent calendars to help kids keep track of the countdown to the big day.

With six calendars on sale, including three new introductions, this range makes the run up to Christmas more exciting for children and adults alike.

This year the popular Christmas on the Farm calendar is back and available for children aged four plus, while a new set of the same theme has also been created for little ones aged 18 months and above. Filled with characters to create a festive farm scene and, of course, Santa himself, this calendar has always been a firm favourite amongst children.

This year’s Christmas on the Farm calendar now also comes with more animals hidden behind each door. These can be added to last year’s calendar collection to grow children’s Christmas scenes or work independently of other sets.

Playmobil will also launch two other new advent calendars – Jewel Thief Police Operation and Royal Ice Skating Trip.

The Jewel Thief Police Operation advent calendar helps children create a police scene, including a motorcycle, safe, officer and thief. The new Royal Ice Skating Trip calendar invites children to join the Royals on their ice skating trip, with the royal family, woodland creatures and even a special bracelet hidden behind the 24 doors.

These new sets join Pirate Treasure Island, a desert island scene complete with a light up pirate character, and Dress Up Party, where two friends can spend time getting ready for a party, to make up the range of six calendars. The new Advent Calendars go on sale in September.
