Walking the toy isles last year, I stopped dead in my tracks. Could this be? Sitting right in front of me was a Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar. My boys would go absolutely bananas for this! I took the plunge and decided to get each of them their own Lego advent calendar, where each day they open up a window and create a mini character.
I knew these advent calendars would be popular with my boys — but I had absolutely no idea how much they would freak out over these. Before I could even open my eyes in the morning, the boys were excitedly showing me what they had created for that day.
So while holiday toys are mainly meant for Christmas day itself, an advent calendar is the one exception! Instead of choosing candy, why not opt for something a little more creative this year? The Lego Advent Calendars are exactly that, with a fun new Lego model to unveil each and every day in December, up until Christmas. And trust me, they Lego Advent Calendars are awesome for both boys and girls.

How Does The Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Work?
The premise behind this Lego advent calendar is the same as all other advent calendars. The Lego pieces are divided between 24 sealed windows, one for each day before Christmas. Every day your child can open up a new window and get a new Star Wars-themed Lego model.
Most of the models are extremely easy to assemble, or are already assembled, so no instructions are necessary. There’s simply a small image of the finished model on the inside of the window once your child has opened it up.
When your child has opened up all 24 windows they’ll have an excellent collection of Star Wars-themed Lego models and figures to play with. These will take them well beyond Christmas, and can be added to their existing Lego collection.
Should You Buy This Lego Advent Calendar For Your Child?
Priced at around $70, this is going to cost a little more than your standard advent calendar. However, as all parents who have bought Lego before will realize, this is actually good value for a themed set that provides minifigures for less than $3 each that last way beyond the advent period.
But wait. There’s more! There are even more version of the calendars!

The manufacturer recommends this toy for any kids aged between 3 and 14, but in truth it’ll appeal to anyone who likes Lego. These sets are very collectible, and there may even be an adult in your life who would enjoy receiving this as a special pre-Christmas gift!
