Looking for a toy advent calendar for kids? Surprise them with one of the following advent calendars with toys in them!
Doing an advent calendar with the kids can be super fun. It gets them extra excited for the big day by giving them a little something along the way, whether that’s a treat, a scripture, a challenge, or even a toy.
While I’m not crazy about giving my kids tons of extra toys, even for Christmas (we’re pretty minimalist around here), kids truly love toys.
Opening a little window to reveal something new to play with, that will (hopefully) last them a while (as opposed to a small piece of chocolate), is super fun for both the kid and the person giving it and will certainly be far more memorable and exciting as you look forward to Christmas day.
Many of the advent calendars with toys in them happen to be part of toy sets or collections many kids already have and use, making these toy advent calendars a fun way to add to various toy collections.
Others toy advent calendars are based on popular characters from TV shows or movies so you’re sure your kid will love it if they already love those characters.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide if toy advent calendars are the type of advent calendar you want to use this year (and no one said you can’t do multiple advent calendars or other countdown to Christmas activities).
I am simply providing you information on what type of toy advent calendars are out there this year, where you can find them, and roughly how much they cost (prices are definitely subject to change at any time!) should you decide that you do indeed want to spoil your kid just a bit with a fun little toy every day leading up to Christmas.
Enjoy shopping! (Be sure to order early so they’ll get to your house by December 1! Some are limited quantities!)
*I’ve organized the list by starting first with solo toy advent calendars from various companies, and then go on to list multiple toy advent calendars that are all from the same company to help organize the post a little bit. These companies include Barbie, Schleich, PlayMobil, Mega Bloks, LEGO, Fisher-Price, and Disney Tsum Tsum.
Also, if you want something different, check out my list of unique advent calendars!
