Generally, I treat my sons to toy advent calendars each Christmas. I like to think of it as something of an early Christmas present. Amongst the best advent calendars we’ve ever bought our sons were Lego ones we bought last year. So of course, we went out looking again to see which Lego Advent calendars are available in 2020.
Here’s what we found.
Lego Advent Calendars 2020
In summary, here are the Lego advent calendars we found on sale this year.
Lego City Advent Calendar 2020
Lego City is a favourite with my children. The 2020 Lego City advent calendar is a great price (£19.99 at the time of writing) and comes with 24 Lego gifts.
Absolute highlight? A little Lego Santa person!!
Lego Harry Potter Advent Calendar
For kids who love Harry Potter and Lego, this advent calendar is a great shout. At the time of writing, the price has been reduced from £24.99 to £19.99, which works out less than £1 a day. The box itself becomes the backdrop for a beautiful Lego Potter Christmas scene.
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar
Ok, I’m not a Star Wars fan myself (sorry!). But my husband is a huge fan of both Star Wars and Lego. So while my children are somewhat indifferent to this, I kid you not that I may well be buying it for my husband. He’s almost 39. But anyway, great value and a really lovely selection of gifts within this.
Lego Friends Advent Calendar
Another excellent value advent calendar from Lego with 24 days of Lego Friends gifts to help your little ones count down to Santa’s arrival.
Where to buy Lego Advent Calendars
Amazon stocks a huge range and many are covered on Prime, so you’ll get them fast. Some other retailers stock them too and you may even find them in your supermarket if you’re looking to buy them in store rather than online.
Lego Advent Calendar Prices
For the 2020 Lego advent calendars, prices are running at the £19.99 to £24.99 mark for the most part.
Lego Advent Calendar Reviews
The great thing about shopping for these on Amazon is the fact you can see the reviews.
At the time of writing:
- Lego City 2020 Advent Calendar has over 480 reviews and an average rating of 4.8
- Lego Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2020 has 512 reviews and an average rating of 4.8
- Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar 2020 has 629 reviews and an average rating of 4.8
- Lego Friends 2020 Advent Calendar has 304 reviews and an average rating of 4.8
So these Lego advent calendars typically review very well.
What age are Lego Advent calendars suitable for?
None of these advent calendars are suitable for children under 3 years of age. Some, for example Star Wars, are marketed at children over 6. But you will know yourself whether your 5 year old will be a fan or not.
But from a safety perspective, they’re certainly not recommended for those under 3.
