I’ve always wanted an advent calendar, but an advent calendar was the sort of thing that didn’t fit into the budget in any obvious sort of way… for years. This year, though, I decided to throw caution to the wind concerning the budget and by golly I got us an advent calendar.
I love this little one, pictured, made by Melissa & Doug, and the kids do too. They’re excited each morning to put a new (magnetic) decoration on the tree, and it’s an easy way for them to visualize how many more nights we have to sleep before the big day.
I think I like Melissa & Doug toys even more than my kids do. I pretty much want one of everything they make… for the kids, of course.
(If you are a rep from Melissa & Doug, yes, I do agree to promote your company on my blog in exchange for free product. A thousand times yes!)
