Count down to Christmas one brick at a time with a Harry Potter, Star Wars, LEGO Friends or City calendar
Christmas comes but once a year and brings with it a wave of unmissable LEGO Advent Calendars. AFOLs (Adult Fan of Lego) and children alike can count down to Christmas brick by brick as they unwrap small buildable projects each day in December and extend their LEGO collections. LEGO Advent Calendars include 24-days of sought after mini-figures and mini-build projects and the 2020 editions include popular themes such as Harry Potter and Star Wars.
The classic set is bursting with festive builds and popular minifigures from the LEGO City Adventures TV series, most of which come bearing gifts and Chief Wheeler just so happens to be dressed as Santa. Each surprise set is designed to encourage creative independent play and comes with easy-to-follow instructions. The LEGO City advent calendar also features a playmat as part of the gift set and once Christmas is over, all the vehicles and characters can be easily combined with other playsets.

Fans of the ultra-cute LEGO Friends series will no doubt select this calendar. In the lead up to Christmas, each window reveals a new mini-build or character from LEGO Friends such as Emma who meets Mrs. Claus, two elves, and a buildable toy penguin. This year's edition features buildable festive treats and gifts that also double as decorations when complete. The box becomes a play scene set in Emma's room, Santa's workshop and or a winter wonderland and the calendar also features a fully-functioning snowball catapult and moveable toy skateboard.
