Some parents prefer to steer clear of giving their children too much chocolate and sweet things over the festive period and this is where children’s toy advent calendars are perfect. Full of exciting toys and surprises for each day of December, you can easily match the calendar to your child’s favourite toy.
With so many to choose from, we have narrowed it down to the following children’s toy calendars, but be warned, these sell out really quickly so don’t wait too long if you want one.
Soft Stuff Advent Calendar – £10
There are surprises for each day of December in this lovely advent calendar which is reduced from £20 at the moment. You get tubs of soft dough, cutters stamps and rollers which make a complete set at the end.

Tinc 2017 Advent Calendar – £28
With contents worth over £50, this calendar was a sell out by mid-November last year so get in quickly as from today 80% of the stock has already gone. Each box contains a Tinc product you cannot buy in store, including travel accessories, toys, puzzles and much more. Each box features a joke on its side and then you turn them over to make a festive Christmas scene. Hugely anticipated and following on from last year’s success.
