DD has the Zhu Zhu advent and today's one was... i really don't know!! Its 3 tiny bits of white plastic! She also doesn't have a clue! She also thought the blue box opened on the 3rd was the back bit for the toilet?? Good thing i got her the Lego Friend advent saved for next year, all this guessing is driving us crazy! Lol Well, DS has the Lego City and today's one was a fireman axe storage wall thing.

Thanks for this post! Just went to open the advent and at the back what did i find? The stickers! It all makes sense now. So that blue box is the dishwasher and the 3 tiny plastic bits today are the carrots, well once the stickers has been placed on! DD should be happy now.

If I can find the Moshi Monster one at a knockdown price now I'll be thrilled, as I've quite set my heart on Mr Snoodle as a Christmas pudding!
I now have my Mr Snoodle . Argos have the calendars at half price so I am one happy woman today .

The children had a teeny ship (I think) and a very cute snowman. Chocolate coins for the grown ups...
They call me Dr Worm... I'm interested in things; I'm not a real doctor but I am a real worm.

DD has this one - is it a bit of fence, that's what I thought anyway.

DS had some panniers for his motorbike, gotta say the playmobile one is brill, he has played loads with it, putting stuff on the bike then in the panniers then giving them to the man, looking forward to the dinosaur.

DS had a choc angel, he asked this afternoon to have his calendar and I said no and that was the end of it no fussing so still impressed with him. He has obviously cottoned onto that there is chocolate in there now though.

We were thinki.g of next year puting a pound a day in our kids advent calendar... it may not save money in the short term but at least their teeth will be in better shape and they would love, which is value for money in itself.

just had a look at my e-advent card & it's a short animated film saying that it's St Nicholas' day today & to think of friends around the world & it then goes on to show Sydney Opera House at night with lights in the roof changing colour!

For those with the zhuzhu pets ones you get the stickers at the end in the box, and the white sticks are carrots apparently - that's what a little google tells me anyway.
