Playmobil starts its countdown to Christmas with latest Advent Calendar line-up

Playmobil is starting the countdown to Christmas early with the unveiling of this year’s collection of Playmobil Advent Calendars, featuring figures, animals, vehicles, and accessories behind every door.

The toymaker is marking the season with the launch of four new calendars this year, including the Christmas Toy Store, the Playmobil Farm, the Pirate Cove Treasure Hunt, and the Battle for the Magic Stone. Each calendar provides children with 24 days’ worth of entertainment during the lead up to Christmas Day.

Once all of the surprises have been discovered, the box folds open into a backdrop to complete the scene.

Leading the line up is the Christmas Toy Store, an advent calendar designed especially on the magic of Christmas. The calendar includes a festive toy shop filled with Christmas joy, including a visit to Father Christmas himself.

Meanwhile, The Farm is the perfect setting for all fans of life on the farm, as it offers little ones the chance to look after the little critters across the Christmas period. The set includes cows with a velvety feel to stroke, pigs, chickens, rabbits and cats.

Pirate Cove Treasure Hunt sees adventures afoot on the high seas this Christmas. Young buccaneers can count down to the big day in this Pirate scene, complete with a host of creatures such scorpions, monkeys, snakes, and a giant squid.

Finally, the Battle for the Magic Stone is an advent calendar full of everything needed for the ultimate adventure in the kingdom of Novelmore. The Burnham raiders are mounting an attack on the Novelmore knight’s stronghold. Well-fortified with a host of weapons and a secret hideaway this is one battle that will become a legend.
