day 21

Three days to go in advent calendars!

Wow, we’re onto day 21 so there are only three more flaps to open – and school has now finished for the year around Australia so the excitement is definitely building now 🙂

Lego City now has a Christmas tree, complete with a star on top and some lights.

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas…

Our Friends advent calendar now has a Christmas pudding to add to the feast – and it looks pretty good!

Lego advent review for day 21

So we’re up to day 21 now, and everyone can count the number of sleeps until Christmas!

If you missed what the calendars gave us yesterday, you can catch up on day twenty. Read introduction to our Lego advent reviews or for the whole picture.

So tonight’s finds were quite interesting and unexpected, to my thinking anyway.

The Lego City calendar produced a campfire and marshmallows on sticks – something I love but don’t associate with snow or Christmas!

And for some unfathomable reason, Lego Friends gave my daughter a catapult with a ‘snowball’ to fling at Lego things. It is so far from what I was thinking, especially in the last days of the advent calendars, but nice to see such things are not reserved for boys! The back of the flap carries a warning (to not fling the ‘snowball at people’s faces) as well as instructions, too.

What do you think – is a campfire and a catapult unexpected, or do they fit the overall themes we’ve been seeing in the calendars?
