I know about Lego & Playmobil, any others in the same sort of price range (10-30 quid)?

I would really like a horsey one for DD (10)

My husband made our boys one each last year - big board of foam core (Hobbycraft), covered with wrapping paper, buy individual little toys/sweets you like, wrap them and stick them on under each day's number. It was brilliant!

I saw this in the Disney store today and it's quite sturdy.

Could you put your own wee toys in it?

What happened to advent calendars being just that...advent calendars? Sounds crazy to get a toy every day in the build up to Christmas then get a load of toys on Christmas day. I am a massive Christmas fan and love the build up and excitement but advent calendars with toys in them? Really??? I am gobsmacked.

Have a search thru the archives, Timothy; there are loads of threads on where to find Advent calendars that are just little pictures or whatever else you're wanting inside.

I never encountered Advent calendars until I had children so I find them quite fun, any sort, although I (almost) wouldn't know about any but the chocolate type if it weren't for MN.

It turns out that other DC prefer to have chocolate not toys, so that's the type they'll have this year after all.
