"We have purchased this item for our daughter for several years now. She has a tree we put in her room each year that she decorates with the lego advent calendar ornaments. We are so disappointed with the models in this year's calendar. She prefers the ornament models over the mini figures and tiny little useless pieces( pretzel, tiny hamster, etc). Maybe LEGO could consider making both an ornament advent calendar option as well as this style. My daughter finds the models far too simplistic this year as well. The one day has two square pieces you put together with a little hamster and pretzel...all pointless pieces. Please bring back the ornaments."
