"As a Mom who doesn't like the "candy" Advent Calendars I look for new ideas each year and happened upon this one. What a great purchase!! My 8 year old daughter loves to open each new day and rushes to open it each morning before she gets ready for the day. There hasn't been a day that she hasn't enjoyed yet and we are on day 16. We bought a small Christmas tree for her room and are hanging her ornaments on the tree. She thinks it's pretty cool to have her own tree. Perhaps those who have been complaining about no mini-figures or "playability" should do the same thing. And make that something special for your daughter. And you can set up the tree and ornaments year after year to enjoy again and again!! I have nothing but praise for Lego on this one. And your creativity was just perfect!!"
