**I have updated this post for Christmas 2017. Find all the latest and greatest right here for toy Advent calendars for kids and adults.
Toy advent calendars are great for kids when it comes to counting the days down to Christmas. It can be a fun tradition to check out the calendar every morning and you can work in some sort of lesson or fun fact about Christmas as well.
In our house we have had a few different toy advent calendars and my kids have enjoyed every one of them. There actually are so many different advent calendars that you can choose from that feature all different types of toys for kids.
Check out some the best toy advent calendars for kids for the year 2016. There are ones for boys, girls, and ones that work for any child.
LEGO Toy Advent Calendars
One of the most popular types of advent calendars for kids are LEGO toy ones. In fact, adults love them as well.
There are all different kinds of LEGO calendars to choose from for your Christmas countdown from Santa’s Workshop to LEGO Friends advent calendar.
The new Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar for 2016 is perfectly awesome. It’s the best Advent calendar for any Star Wars fan and so much fun for a family to put together.
The nice thing about these advent calendars is that you can re-use the pieces year after year to make your own Christmas sets and scenes. They don’t have any specific dates that would make them only for one year. There are new calendars that come out every year, but you can use the ones from previous years as well. This allows you to save some money as you can even use the pieces with a homemade calendar the next year.
Playmobil Advent Calendars
Another great option for a toy advent calendar for your child is the Playmobil advent calendar. Just like the LEGO ones, they have different scenes and designs for the calendars to choose from.
There are some people who like the Playmobil ones better than the LEGO ones because you also get a backdrop with the advent calendar and they are usually cheaper as well.
These calendars have a backdrop along with other parts of the scene that you build and then have 24 special little toys that you add for every day up to Christmas.
Here are a few different Playmobil advent calendars to choose from.
