Melissa and Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar

Melissa and Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar

Add some kid-friendly Christmas cheer and a charming yuletide ritual to your home with this wooden magnetic advent tree! The set includes 24 magnetic ornaments plus a shining star for Christmas day–all of which fit neatly in the attached box at the base of the tree. Kids can pick a favourite design to place on the tree each day, following the numbered outlines to fill the tree right up to Christmas. They’ll also love to switch, move, and rearrange the pieces to customize their very own tree countless times.

Decorating your Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar will not only become a highly-anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote and reinforce many developmental skills as children grow. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to learn to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop colour recognition and memory skills. For example, have kids find all of the ornaments that have red but no green or name all of the colours on individual ornaments. Or, ask them to choose five ornaments and study them carefully; then, have them to close their eyes while you remove one ornament. Can they guess which one is missing? The learning possibilities are endless!

For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News in the US called ?the gold standard in early childhood play.? We design every toy to the highest-quality standards, and to nurture minds and hearts. If your child is not inspired, give us a call and we’ll make it right. Our phone number is on every product!

Our Verdict

We love anything Melissa & Doug, you always know you are getting great quality, well thought out playability yet simplistic.The advent calendar is no exception and perfect to bring out each year making this a great, sustainable advent calendar.
