2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 24: Gift

Day 24 Gift 1The final last set to this year’s advent calendar is a sweet blue and white gift box topped with a printed white gift tag.  Made of 12 pieces, this set is the perfect way to wrap up this series.  After all, Friends love exchanging gifts and spreading joy everywhere they go.

Day 24 Gift 2Thanks for hanging out with us for the past 24 days. We’ll be sharing more reviews and news in the next few days/weeks/months so check back often.

Merry Christmas!


2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 23: Squirrel

Day 23 Squirrel 1And today we finally meet the cute little brown squirrel with its sweet purple bow on its swishy tail.  Nothing to build with this set other than attaching the bow onto the tail.  He fits just fine in yesterday’s basket, but you can also add him to the long bed from Day 9’s Pet Bed.  There is an extra purple bow just in case the other one gets lost.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 22: Basket

Day 22 Basket 1Today’s item is the little blue basket that attaches to the tree.  Made of eight pieces, this set looks to be the permanent residence of the cute little squirrel who we have yet to meet.  I now see why the tree was designed the way it was…so as to accommodate for the squirrel and its cute little dwelling.  There is one extra white ornament piece which I easily attached to the tree branch.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 21: Music Sheet

Day 21 Music Sheet 1Here’s another set that has me stumped.  Seven pieces make up two elements – the obvious one looks like sheet music but the other element I can only guess to be a microphone or a megaphone – I honestly have no clue.  There are four extra pieces that make up a second microphone/megaphone.  These items will surely come in handy when Friends go caroling together.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 20: Christmas Tree

Day 20 Christmas Tree 1

Finally a holiday tree!  I was wondering when this set was going to appear.  Made of 18 pieces, this grand little tree features four hanging ornaments and a shining golden star tree topper.  There is an extra star piece and an extra ornament piece, which I have easily placed under the tree just to make things more festive.  My only wish is that it could be built in such a way to make it viewable from all sides instead of one side only.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 19: Fire Stand

Day 19 Fire Stand 1Today’s four-piece set looks to be some kind of outdoor fire stand.  I’ve never seen anything like this in real life, but I imagine it can easily be a hand warmer, face defroster, marshmallow roaster, or just a general warmth generator.  The set also comes with an extra flame piece with its accompanying brown charcoal/wood briquette.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 18: Snowman

Day 18 Snowman 1Better late than never right?

Today’s calendar item is the cutest snowman wearing a red neckerchief and purple beanie hat.  Made of eight pieces, he stands at attention holding a sweeping rake ready to dust off a pathway for any oncoming Friends walking by.  This set is my favorite thus far…so so cute!

Day 18 Snowman 2We’ll return to our regular noonish time reveals starting tomorrow.

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 16: Ice Skates

Day 16 Ice Skates 1

Today’s item appears to be a little brown bench with a red/white flower plant and two pairs of ice skating blades that easily snap onto each of the Friends’ feet. The skates look great and are tall enough for a minidoll to stand and clear the height of the studs on a baseplate. Extra pieces include an additional plant base with one red and one white flower. And there’s also an extra skate blade in case one gets lost. Happy ice skating dear Friends!

2013 Friends Advent Calendar Day 15: Bench

Day 15 Bench 1

Today’s item is a cute little blue street bench. Finally! A place where the homeless of Heartlake City can call home. Or it could be seating perfect for Friends needing a break from the hustle and bustle of shopping, greeting and hot chocolate drinking. Go ahead…have a seat, take a load off and enjoy the magical holiday season.
