Ds and I are having our annual advent calendar competition where we have guessed what is in all the windows. One point for something you guessed but on the wrong day, two points for the right thing on the right day.

Today I had a decoration (1 point), ds also had a decoration (no points, as he didn't guess decoration for any day). He also has the Playmobil Knights tournament advent calendar and had a king person in it! smile

DD1 got a playmobil princess, which she was ridiculously excited about.

DD2 got the playmobil tree with 2 squirrels! She was a bit non-plussed, so the squirrels have now been joined by Peppa Pig and George to keep them company. I deliberately fiddled with the calendar so she gets santa tomorrow!

That's a good idea, I'm not sure DS is going to be thrilled by some letters for his postbox in his sparse cardboard diorama!

Playmobil post office calendar here. Today a post box. Ds placed it next to the footsteps in the snow on the calendar backdrop. According to ds the footsteps in the snow are Santa's.

Hello all, sorry late posting today, as I've been away overight with Norman the Foreman! smile.

Today I had some sweets (0 points) and ds had a gingerbread house (1 point). In the Playmo one he had a crown and scroll of paper for the kingy person.

Your Ds got a blue glump moshling with a snowy head? you can get blue glumps by moshling? That sounds painful. (yes, I have no inkling of what you're on about! grin )

MonsterBookOfTinsel Sun 02-Dec-12 20:36:16

Haha Happy grin
Nor did I 6 months ago, ds now has a book with all the names in

bedmonster Sun 02-Dec-12 21:47:58

I shall regularly check into this thread so you can tell me what all DD's moshlings are Ty smile

DS got a Lindt chocolate square with Mary on

We got letters today. Ds posted them in the post box and then spent a considerable amount of time trying to retrieve them out of the post box.

Playmobil PO people - we had a post box on the first day but it doesn't open- did yours?? If so, where and how??!!

difficultpickle Sun 02-Dec-12 22:15:10

Post box definitely doesn't open. Ds won't be putting the letters back in now he managed to get them out, it took him ages.

SnowMuchToBits Sun 02-Dec-12 22:18:56

We had a Playmo PO last year - but can't remember about the letters. Really, Norman the foreman was just so pleased to get a Christmas tree, we did't care too much about posting letters........ hmm

Morning Snowmuch smile

we got a tree and a squirrel while I was away.

It's pretty.

Nagoo Mon 03-Dec-12 07:36:21

I have looked it up, it says you can open the post box by pushing at either side, downwards.

I'm not looking at one, so I can't say if this is true?

SnowMuchToBits Mon 03-Dec-12 07:39:39

I'll go and find our post box later and investigate....

Today ds had a rocking horse (1 point) and I had a tree, but it wasn't a Christmas tree, it was a sort of ornamental lemon tree in a pot. Ds allowed me one point, as I had guessed tree for today but had intended it to be a Christmas tree.....

In the Playmo calendar we had a golden cloak for the kingy person. smile

The postbox does open, it is like a drawer so you just push the middle of teh postbox through.

A sack for dd and a christmas tree for ds1.

SummerRain Mon 03-Dec-12 09:28:03

Ahh... We were wondering about the postbox opening, ds2 has been shaking the letters out the top!

Dds turn this morning and it was a bag for the post.

peachypips Mon 03-Dec-12 09:38:40

You lot are bloody marvellous. Just opened my PB!! It is indeed like a drawer. Thank you nagoo for looking it up!!

SnowMuchToBits Mon 03-Dec-12 09:59:43

Ah yes, I remember now, it pushes open! Norman is thinking about putting his Christmas tree up outside his portakabin soon. Maybe we could get the postbox out too, so he can post his Christmas cards! smile

Hello! Oliver the archaeologist now has an Indiana Jones hat, some binoculars, a map and a GPS. DS is EXTREMELY pleased with him.

Princess Christabelle has a crown and a fan and today she got a dressing table - she also spent the night in Oliver's cardboard tent - not sure what her prince will have to say about that when he turns up! shock

SnowMuchToBits Mon 03-Dec-12 15:37:07

Shocking behaviour from Princess Christabelle I'd say! shock

SnowMuchToBits Tue 04-Dec-12 07:56:24

Today ds had a toy car (no points) and I had some teddy bears (1 point). Shame the teddy bears couldn't have waited until tomorrow though, as I had guessed them for then! grin

In the Playmo one we had an owl on a stand. Norman has been having a conversation with it... hmm

Indith Tue 04-Dec-12 09:56:29

A star for the christmas tree and an angel. The angel's hald is too big so it keeps slipping hmm.
