In past years, my daughter has felt let down on a couple of days but overall loved the calendars. This year, she is really disappointed with the Friends calendar so far – and jealous of her brother’s City calendar. And rightly so. I’m afraid.
Lego City produced a cute little fireplace that fits nicely into the corner of the play board.
Lego Friends has a cute little rabbit on a slide (at least we think it is for the rabbit to slide down).
Pleasingly, Lego Friends had more pieces to put together today as my daughter created a structure – I thought it was a fireplace/mantlepiece, but my daughter sat the rabbit inside it so she thinks it is a pet house/stand apparently! What do you think it looks like? It also came with a carrot, which supports the pet stand idea I guess!
Lego City had a chair, lamp and side table combination to put together, and it fits nicely beside the fireplace 🙂
However, the sarcasm just dripped off my seven year old’s tongue as she said “Oh, this is exciting to build”. Inside the fifth flap she found a small Lego dog – no accessories, nothing to build, just a plastic bag with a tiny dog in it which she was bitterly disappointed with – especially in comparison to a gingerbread house.
I sincerely hope the next few days are better in the Friends calendar.
Have you had any advent calendar disappointments?
