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!

I thought everyone would have learnt their lesson after last years fiasco...

Wow the title of this thread made me think the Smiggle Advent Calendar maimed or converted our children into weird cult members.

Sorry I didn't mean to do the caps blush

Did this not happen last year?

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.

I've bought this for my 2 DDs, I've just (naughtily) opened day 5 of dd3s and hers is working. Might just be a faulty one.
