2018 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar Review (LEGO)

2018 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar
What It Is

Build a happy holiday with the 2018 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar. As it does every year, LEGO releases Advent Calendars to help fans count down the 25 days until Christmas and add to their collections with minifigures, accessories, and small builds. 

There are 24 numbered punch-out doors, one for each of the 24 days leading up to Christmas. On December 1, punch open door number one to reveal what's inside. Do the same with door number two on December 2, and so on.

You'll be able to see some of what you get to build right on the package, such as a fireplace scene, a stocking, a candy cane, and a gingerbread man. But you won't know specifically which model is behind what door. 

String thread through the loops to turn the models into ornaments, or get crafty and turn them into a wearable pin or a holiday decoration. The set, model number 41353, comes with 500 pieces.

Is It Fun?

LEGO Friends fans will like the surprise of opening a door a day to see what's inside (kind of like 24 days of unboxings!) and getting crafty with what they build or just adding the holiday-themed models to their LEGO Friends construction sets for more creative storytelling and play.

Who It’s For

The 2018 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar is for ages 6 to 12, and will be a fun holiday activity for LEGO Friends fans.

What To Be Aware Of

When you lift the flap of the Advent Calendar, there are picture instructions for different ways to use what you build. You'll need to provide materials from home in order to complete those crafts.
