EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
Part of the 2016 Playmobil Advent Calendar line comes the NHL-inspired Rivalry on the Pond set. Each day on the calendar features a door that unfolds to reveal a unique part of the full set. When the 24 days are up, kids will have a complete playset for epic imaginary hockey games. Each box also has a themed backdrop to help create the scene for each individual calendar, so that when kids are ready to play or display their calendar set, it'll look great and neatly tied together with the hockey imagery.
Is It Fun?

The hockey fans in your house will love the Rivalry on the Pond set. The countdown to Christmas just got a bit competitive as kids build the playset for two hockey players to face off on the ice this holiday season. Kids will open a new door each day to build the complete set, which can be played with year round. This can be added to other NHL sets in Playmobil's line, which are sold separately.

Who It’s For
For ages 5 and up, the NHL Advent Calendar teaches young hockey fans patience and it's a fun way to count down the days until Christmas. In addition, it's also great for inspiring creative and imaginative play when kids finally unbox the entire kit. 
What To Be Aware Of
Each of the 11.5 x 15.5 inch calendars has a fold-up piece on the back so it can be hung on a wall or wherever's appropriate. Before giving these to a child you will want to remove the outer sleeve because it shows the surprises of each day. That's great for when you're shopping but once given to your child, you don't want to give it all away, right? The NHL Rivalry by the Pond set includes a backdrop, two hockey figures, Santa referee, two child figures, flags, goal, Stanley Cup, puck bag, reindeer, and lots of other accessories to bring this winter game to life.
