2016 Lego Christmas Advent Calendars

Day 17…

My daughter was very excited to find a Christmas related set of Lego for day 17. She found two presents – she had to make the gift boxes and had little hair clips to put inside the gifts.

Her brother was happy to have the second part of the bakery stall to put together.

Day 18…

Both children found their advent claendars today built on what they found on day 17. Lego City’s bakery stall now has a uniformed firefighter serving biscuits!

The Lego Friends calendar produced a Christmas tree to put the presents under. The tree was a little difficult to build – pieces on different angles based on a single connection point made it easy for pieces to fall apart as we pushed on them (and I say we but my six year old couldn’t do it so I ended up making the tree, although she added the star!)

Previous days…

With only a week to go to Christmas, here are some of the previous days of the 2016 Lego advent calendars.

Moving onto day eighteen of the Christmas count down! Remember you can read the introduction to our Lego advent reviews or catch up on day seventeen.

My son and I love the husky, and his bowl and bones, in the Lego city box tonight. I know previously that the huskies are printed in such a way that they are realistic and no two are painted identically.

These Lego huskies are very cute!

Lego Friends on the other hand gave my daughter a table. It was not clear at first what it was meant to be (there only being four pieces!) but once created we could see it was a table to go with yesterday’s benches.
