LEGO City Advent Calendar’s Rankings
If your floors are regularly covered in LEGO pieces, this might be the year to start the LEGO advent calendar tradition. A new LEGO piece is revealed each day to build an entire scene over the course of December. And for kids familiar with past LEGO calendars, this year has a new crop of characters – including robbers (stealing Christmas presents!), policemen (saving Christmas!), and more. It’ll be a slow construction process, but kids can continue playing with it all year long. There’s also a Star Wars version with Yoda wearing a Santa suit!
