We love the Smiggle Advent Calendar. And when I say “we”, I do mean we. We have had a couple now and I get almost as excited about opening each door as my daughter does. With a mix of items from the stationery shop where colour and fun is everything, what’s not to like? I had already bought a Smiggle Advent Calendar for my daughter this year (it was the ONLY one she wanted) and she is already super excited about it. We have certainly never been disappointed in the past and I was excited to get a sneak peek of this year’s Smiggle Advent Calendar ahead of December so that I can share it with you.
For £25, 25 days of doors of different sizes await and an array of stationery items that kids of all ages will love. The contents combined are worth over £40, so they are also a great way of stocking up on Smiggle stationery for a fraction of the normal price. Kids big and small will love discovering what is hiding behind each door and every door is a different shape and size too, so there will be some guessing what’s behind each one too.
So, what is inside then? Well, I am only going to share some of the items as I don’t want to give all of the surprises away, but this will give you a flavour of what’s inside and it is pretty cool, even if I do say so myself. This will be one of my daughter’s favourites a Smiggle snap band. She already has a pretty impressive collection of snap bands and I know she will love the colours and style of this one.
What I like about the contents of this year’s Smiggle Advent Calendar is the variety of the contents. There is a really lovely mix with rubbers, pens and pencils that you would expect but some lovely additions such as a brightly coloured lanyard, a bag tag shaped like a burger, an emoji notebook, a mini stapler, a seriously cute mini calculator and even a pen cunningly disguised as a chocolate bar.
Everything inside is also useful. It seems to me that a lot of thought has been put into the contents to ensure that the items are fun but also practical which is a real bonus.
I am really impressed with everything inside, I like the variety and the quality. It is suitable for both boys and girls and would appeal to children aged from 6 through to teenagers. Because of the stapler, you would have to be careful with younger children. It is totally worth the money and I know that my daughter will thoroughly enjoy opening her Smiggle Advent Calendar when December comes. And the good thing about her already having one is that the contents of this one are all mine. If by any chance (and it is highly unlikely) there are one or two things that she doesn’t want, they make great party bag fillers or presents by themselves, so nothing will be wasted.
We were sent a Smiggle Advent Calendar for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.
