Today a family member opened the full SMIGGLE 2017 advent calendar ( I have no idea why! Lol) and has informed me that her day 5 gift is faulty and doesn't work ( it's a secret message pen with a torch) she is taking it back to SMIGGLE at the weekend to see what they say but I just wanted to make you aware incase any of your little ones have the same calendar that you may have disappointed children on day 5 and it may be worth a check before the day!
We had one last year. Day 1's yoyo was broken. Most of the other stuff was OK but not worth the price imo. There was a huge hoo-hah on social media about it and Smiggle were very apologetic and exchanged/refunded disappointed customers as far as I can remember (I didn't bother - just looking at their shopfront gives me a headache) DD has the Aldi charm bracelet advent calendar this year - it may well turn her wrist green but fingers crossed the charms won't be broken.
