Even though it's still a few months until Christmas (about four-and-and-half, but who's counting?) it's never too early to start thinking about gifting. Small gifts that are easy to hide and stocking stuffers are great things to buy ahead. So are advent calendars, which are technically for the purpose of counting down to Christmas. Advent calendars are constantly growing in popularity, with more and more companies creating them. And if you want good ones, you need to start looking early. Disney has just released their 2019 advent calendar for preorder, so you better get on it.
The Disney Storybook Advent Calendar features 24 individually wrapped books. Each day leading up to Christmas, you get a new book. To keep the element of surprise, each book is wrapped in special paper so you can't accidentally get any spoilers. Even though the preorder has just begun, it's already a number one bestseller. And since advent calendars are limited editions and sell out quickly, you should get it now while you still can.
While the description on Amazon doesn't give any details about what stories will be included, the cover features characters from Frozen, Aladdin, Wreck It Ralph and Toy Story4. Even Forky is on the cover, which would lead us to believe he could have a book adventure somewhere behind a flap.
Advent calendars are a fun way to get the kids excited about the holidays. Or to keep them from driving you crazy asking for presents. And since this one has 24 flaps (calendars vary between 12 and 24 days usually) you have the entire month of December covered. Since the surprise is books, you can create a routine of opening the calendar at the end of the day and reading the book at bedtime. Then at the end of the 24 days, your little one has a whole new stack of books to read, featuring some of their favorite characters.
Because this is a Disney item, it's likely going to sell out quickly if you don't preorder it. Advent calendars always sell out fast upon release. Plus, if you preoder this one, you're saving 25 percent off the cover price. It retails for $30, and you're getting it for $23. The Disney Storybook Advent Calendar 2019 is going to be released on October 1st.
