There was a lot of excitement last night when my son opened flap ten of the Lego City advent calendar to find a Christmas tree! He enjoyed putting it together, placing it beside Santa’s seat and then ‘creating a scene’ (his words!) with all the parts of his calendar to date.
On the other hand, my daughter was very disappointed to find she had nothing to make last night. That’s not to say she didn’t get much as she did – there was a bag of blue hair related items for her to play with instead. She has enjoyed brushing, combing and drying the Lego hair, and has added the crown and some hair accessories to one Lego girl so far.
By this morning, she was happy with what she got but still disappointed to not have built anything.
So again the calendars are fun but the City one is proving more engaging and closer to the idea of building Lego.
