Win a Playmobil Advent Calendar

Win a Playmobil Advent Calendar


It’s no secret that we’re big Playmobil fans round these parts.

I’ve been lucky enough to meet one of the founders of the company on a visit to the Playmobil HQ in Germany, and Flea has been a Playmobil playologist for the last two years, which has involved trying out loads of Playmobil sets. Her top recommendations from 2012 can be found over on her blog, Flea Reads.

This week, we were sent a Playmobil advent calendar.

Now, as it happens, we bought our own Playmobil advent calendar back when Flea was three and we love bringing it out each year. You can get advent calendars from Playmobil with pirate or fairy themes, but we’re old school – our advent calendar allows Flea to build a lovely winter scene over 24 days, featuring cute animals, snow-laden trees, a working music box and Father Christmas himself.

The calendar works in a fairly simple way – you hang a stiff cardboard backing onto the wall, and there are 24 collapsible cardboard boxes that hook onto the backing – each containing one or two small items that can be added to a scene background, which sits comfortably on a shelf in your home. The whole thing is quite sturdy – ours is four years old and still completely intact – but there are a few spare boxes in case of accidents, and you can buy replacement parts, too.

This year, Playmobil sent us a new Christmas scene advent calendar but we’re still very attached to ours, so I’m giving this brand new one away to one of my readers. This set features Santa, an angel, and lots of little woodland creatures. It’s recommended for children aged 4+, because of small parts.

How to Enter

If you’d like to win, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me your favourite Christmas carol, and I’ll pick one winner at random on November 16th at 5pm. The calendar will be posted to you in time to use this December (UK residents only, please!). Use the Rafflecopter widget to register your comment, and there are bonus entries to be had, too.

Rules: One entry per person; entries made via automated or online services will be disqualified; users must provide an email address so I can contact you; winner will be contacted by email; in the event the winner cannot be reached in 48 hours, the prize may be re-allocated; competition open to UK residents only; prize will be dispatched using a recorded post service. 

Good luck!

  1. Silent Night is defo my favourite

  2. Although in some ways it’s terribly twee, I think mine is Away in a Manger – because one of the few things I remember about my grandmother is her singing it to me. I’m still word perfect ;-)
    Julie recently posted..#TwatigueMy Profile

  3. It has to be ‘O Little Town Of Bethlehem’. Always brings back the memories of my school carol service and how I would feel that sense of anticipation and excitement that Christmas was only a few days away. Now I get the same buzz when I take my daughter to her carol service.

    I have 2 favourites, The First Noel & Good Christian Men Rejoice

  7. Oh mine is Away in a Manager for sure! Melts my hear when all the little kiddies sing it ;)
    Sonia recently posted..Micro Scooter’s – Scooter AidMy Profile

  8. Mine is Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, so pretty and serene & just makes me feel all Christmassy and happy. I also like all the really high ones which nobody can sing and you all end up trying not too laugh too hard in church with your Nan…
    Emily recently posted..Winnie the Pooh Spin and Play Acorn TrainMy Profile

  9. Mine would have to be “Good King Wenceslas” and a more contemporary one “it was on a starry night”. My daughter’s SN class sing this beautifully (with sign language) every year

  10. julie kenny says:

    I love Christmas carols – my favourite is Once in Royal David’s City xx

  11. Is it wrong that I want to win this for me?! The kids can have the chocolate!!!

    My favourite carol is “away in a manger” which I often get quite teary to when listening! Also partial to a bit of “in the bleak mid winter, frost wind may moan” LOVE that line!

  12. John Taggart says:

    Silent Night

  13. Mine is Once in Royal David’s City and Silent Night (but the Welsh Version!)

  16. Thanks Sally – the calendar looks great but we’ll be sticking to our traditional “build a manger” type nativity calandar too. Whilst the lego, playmobil and other yummy chocolate (Hotel Chocolat one in particualr) ones look fab, paying vast amounts of money just seems silly for a calendar and to me personally, bares little relation to what Christmas is really about. To me a calendar is about counting down to Christmas and enjoying a picture of a pretty bauble, shepherd or angel. It’s about that rush my brother and I used to do down the stairs to see what picture we got today and finding that blasted little door!

    Still, looks fun though :-)

    • I see your point – I’m not a fan of the themed LEGO advents as – to me – they’re nothing to do with Christmas. But this calendar (and the one we own) is all about Christmas and includes a Father Christmas, an angel, and lots of Christmassy-details – as for ridiculous money, the calendar costs £17, which given ours is about to used for its fifth year makes it pretty good value for money in my book!

      • I agree re £17 if you can use and re-use year after year, but I know my kids would take the figures out and play with them and the calendar part would be forgotten and most likely not used again. I do like that the Playmobile one is Christmas themed though :-)

        • To be fair, you could say that about any advent set – don’t your children want to play with the nativity figures? I do love this set – considering we’ve had it since Flea was 3, and we’ve not lost a single piece or box, and it gets used every year, I think they’re a great buy.

          • My two LOVE figures – normally character ones though – e.g. Harry Potter figures or little lego ones that they can change the bodies and heads on lol. It’s not the re-using thing that frustrates me (frankly I love to see my two creating games and scenes using their imagination) and I like that the playmobile figures are at least Christmas characters, but it’s the getting a toy a day type thing. It’s unlikely that they would be able to put these figures back into the calendar to take out next year – or am I wrong? Maybe one could put them aside and into a storage type calendar with boxes for each day (?!).

            I guess I’m just harking back to my days as a child when just opening the door to see and appreciate the picture was the thrill and trying not to over comercialise it – Christmas = every day treats and more….

            Do you know what I mean? Maybe I’m just old fashioned and tight LOL.

  35. In The Bleak Midwinter: the school choir used to sing it every winter term at Nine Lessons and Carols. The guy who did the solo always used to have me in tears. Wish I had a copy actually.

  39. Fiona Martin says:

  40. My favourite carol has to be Oh Come All Ye Faithful. Christmas isn’t complete without a stirring rendition of it, mainly out of tune!

  41. My fav carol is Whilst Shepherds Watch there Flock by Night for 2 reasons…. It’s the only thing that I can play on a piano after my teacher taught it to me be over 30 years ago. I also cannot help but sing whilst shepherds wash their socks instead . Brings out the kid in me every time.

  63. Little donkey is my favourite because I used to sing it as a child and last year I watched my daughter who has severe speech & language disorder sing and sign it in her first big carol concert!

  64. My favourite carol is “O Little Town of Bethlehem”.

    I bought a Playmobil advent calendar for the geekdaughter a couple of years ago, but it was clearly an inferior one as it didn’t come with any little boxes and certainly wasn’t reuseable. I like the idea of being able to bring the same calendar out year after year, it’s like setting a new tradition :)

  91. silent night

  92. Have to be the odd one out here and say I dunno about these things – while Playmobil is good value for money, you look at the Moshi Monster one and the Lego Star Wars and you wonder how many kids are going to be upset that they can’t get the £20 advent calendar.

    Or perhaps I’m just a miserable Scot.

  93. Good King Wenceslas looked out
    On the palace garden
    Tripped over a brussel sprout
    Said ‘I beg your pardon’
    He had had a glass or two
    And was feeling merry
    You would do do the same if you’d
    Been drinking all the sherrrrryyyy!

    I think this used to do the rounds at school when I was little, and I love it! The idea of tripping over a brussel sprout still cracks me up ;)

  95. Mine is In the Bleak Midwinter. Just gorgeous and never fails to make me blub. Brings back memories of carolling with my junior brass band in motheaten old Victorian outfits (this was in Hebden Bridge – I think the poor kids still have to do it every Christmas).

  115. O Come All Ye Faithful – even though I now sing it *properly*, I still have to fight the urge to bellow it out like I did as a kid in Christmas assembly at school – usually getting told off in the process!

I need to check their is one at the Santa’s grotto we have booked to go to – there may not be as it is at a zoo!

  134. In the past, I’ve been called pretentious for liking this but I love the Coventry Carol. No, it’s not one we’ll all be singing, and being based on the story of Herod’s massacre of the innocents, it’s a bit ‘heavy’ for some people. But it’s more than 500 years old. And to me, it’s always felt like a connection with the past, and that’s something Christmas ought to do.

    Here’s a link to a Wikipedia page about it, in case anyone’s interested –

    Good King Wenceslas. My little boy, aged 6, took a fancy to it in November last year. He learnt all the verses off by heart and sang it numerous times everyday whilst plonking radomly and loudly on the piano. The obsession lasted well into January!

  196. Little Donkey has become my favourite this year as my nearly 4 year old now know all the words. I can’t wait for Christmas so he can sing it for everyone.

  197. Little Donkey – I used to love singing it in the school nativity when I was a child.

    Away in a manager – reminds me of the nativity I was in as a child

  209. Micky Ricketts says:

    My little one is learning Little Donkey, I think it’s a great xmas carol and listening to him sing it makes my heart swell!

  210. My favourite is a little unconventional. When we were children my mum had a cassette (which was then replaced with a CD) with a story on it that was sung, Whoops-A-Daisy Angel. It was about a very clumsy angel and it came out every Christmas for us to listen to on our way to school. I can probably still sing you every word to the main song “Whoops-A-Daisy Angel”.

    If I had to choose a conventional song it would be O Little Town Of Bethlehem, my sisters and I often used to put on our own four person nativity on Christmas day, complete with programmes and hymn sheets for the oldies. This is the hymn I always chose to play (badly) on my recorder/clarinet.

  211. Silent night, it reminds me of gentle snow falling on a dark cold night

  212. Anne-Marie Brookes says:

    Away in a manger

  213. My favourite Christmas carol of all time is
    ‘What Child is this’ sung at the same time as ‘Child of the Poor’ gorgeous.

  214. Lydia Houghton says:

    ‘Silent Night’ is truly beautiful. It makes me cry! x

  215. Silent Night – its such a gentle peaceful carol

  218. It has to holidays are coming better than any Xmas carol

  219. On the first day of Christmas is great even tho is still get them mixed up

  220. My favourite is ‘Oh little town of Bethlehem’ for sure. It reminds me of carol services at school.
    I love the Playmobile advent calendar but I am a bit of a stickler for traditional, magical christmas scenes with nativity and Father Christmas. Just found great company for traditional advent calendars and cards- orchardcards.
