Oh man. At this point, we're going to have enough advent calendars to have a full gift and treat spread by Christmas Day! Remember when advent calendars were just chocolate? Or maybe one of those homemade or reusable ones filled with a small treat or trinket for each day? Now, there are advent calendars filled with EVERYTHING. You can get Harry Potter calendars, lip gloss calendars, wine calendars, even calendars personalized with your own photos! It's sort of out of control, and honestly, we love it. Advent calendars are one of the best parts of the holidays! Like a little practice gift to open daily to train for the big day. And while we're definitely seeing more adult-themed calendars than we have in recent years, there are still plenty of options for the kiddos, too! If your little ones are still riding that Hatchimal train, you're going to want to make their toy-hatching dreams come true with this Hatchimal advent calendar.
This isn't just ANY advent calendar, guys. This bad boy is filled with over 50 Hatchimal surprises. That's right - over 50! We're not talking about one thing a day. There is so much to discover in this calendar, it's like two advent calendars in one. The best part? Some of the prizes your kids can uncover are exclusive CollEGGtibles characters (lol, cute). These are characters that they can't find in any other egg or blind bag, only behind one of the cute little doors on the Hatchimal advent calendar.
There are characters, paper crafts, stickers, and even attachable accessories. Those cute sparkly nests are also exclusive to this Hatchimal advent calendar, how cute are those?! This calendar retails for just $20, and considering how much you get, it's a pretty good bargain. But remember the Hatchimal craze that kicked this whole thing off? Be prepared to do some searching to be able to snag a couple of these calendars for your kids. You can find them at Target, Walmart, and on Amazon. But just a heads up, it looks like Target and Walmart have disabled shipping for this item, meaning you'll have to head into the store. And buying it on Amazon will cost you an extra $5. Gotta love the holidays!
