I was very fortunate to be able to review the Christmas Tree Advent Calendar from the CP Toys site:

Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Each day brings a new discovery with this Advent Calendar. By the 24th day, it's a fully decorated Christmas tree. Retrieve the ornament hiding behind each lift-up door and then hanging it on one of the 24 hooks. Crafted all in wood, it stands 10 ½" W. x 3" D. x 19 ½" H. Ages 5 yrs. +.
Item #: KA-94L 

$42.99  Set

My Review:

Part of the fun of Christmas is counting down the days with an Advent calendar. We had an Advent calendar last year but it was a cheap little calendar we got from Target the year before when all of their Christmas items were 90% off. This year we won’t need that sorry little calendar we have been sent a really nice Advent calendar from CP Toys.

This is not just a calendar it’s a real honest to goodness decoration. This calendar is big and impressive. It’s a Christmas tree and snowman standing on a box of drawers and in those drawers are the decorations you need to decorate the tree with. Like I said this isn’t a flimsy little throw away calendar, this is something that we will proudly display year after year. The only issue I have is I have to keep reminding my husband that he can’t use it until next month! He wants to put it out now and count down the days until Christmas. I can see it now my husband and daughter will be fighting with each other as to who gets to open the door and put the decoration on the tree. Ah my tow children sure love Christmas.

Wouldn't you love counting down the days until Christmas with this great advent calender with your family?
