"This year’s Friends Advent calendar is a major disappointment.
I was thrilled with 2018’s 500pc set and satisfied with fewer pieces last year because they were still ornaments.
Discouraged, I stopped opening doors after Day 4. Seriously? A hamster and a pretzel?!?!? Perhaps the retailer knew something when they sold this set in September for $10 less. That’s the only redeeming quality of this set."
"The numerous ways of arranging the “dots” make this set tremendously entertaining. Yet I wish the printed pieces are made available in Extra DOTS packs because purchasing multiples of this set to acquire them all would be costly. Of the twenty-two printed dots, only thirteen were included in the set I obtained."
