Sorry if theres already a thread about this, i'm looking for an advent calender with drawers for DD. I don't mind if its not wooden but would like it to be sturdy and last so I can use it every year until she gets too old (so prob never!)

I've also seen mentions on here of ones that come with little decorations as well, but can't see any online.

Would pref not spend more than £20 but would pay more if worth it!

It arrived yesterday and is lovely and should last years.

cantspel thats lovely.

That does look nice. Does it feel sturdy then as the review isn't very complimentary!

I have no problems with mine. All the handles are in place and not lose.

Yes the drawers will rattle about if you drive it up and down the lounge carpet but as i want it to sit on the fireplace it is fine.

John Lewis are selling a lovely wooden house but it must be a good deal more than £20. Tis gorgeous tho.

You can buy kits to paint and decorate your own one if you or DD are up for it?
I've done a kaisercraft one this year for my DD, was £23 for the wood and you could spend as much as you wanted on the paper/decoration.

I would love to do that RugBugs but just don't have the time between now and December, if i had thought about it earlier i would have done that.

There does seem to be a few in my price range, I might browse my local garden centre and if I can't find one there will prob get one similar to cantspel

I got a train one from Studio 24 this year. It arrived the other day & is lovely. Small drawers but that's ok for what I want.
