Well this was an unexpected surprise! When the last few calendars would give us an animal, it would be just that, just the animal. So getting this vignette, however small, is actually quite nice. It puts the fawn in context of a winter scene which is perfect for the advent calendar. Overall, I am very pleased with today’s offering.
There’s a bad and a good to what Day 3’s gift has for us. The bad? It’s a paltry 4 pieces making up a small gift and a basket. The good? It’s not the worst. If this year’s calendar is anything like years past, there will be days where you will get a single element. So by that standard, today’s gift isn’t all that bad. You do get a spare flower piece so there’s that…
Today’s reveal is a small sled, or toboggan if you prefer. It’s a bit weird since it’s built sideways and because of that it’s really thick giving the rider a really high center of gravity. That can’t be good for sledding down a hill at high speed. Maybe tomorrow’s reveal will be a snow bluff for a soft landing. Or a first-aid kit.
Wow! I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I last updated this site. Ugh. Clearly I’m not great at this but you know what? I’m not going to dwell on it and just try and look ahead to the future. It’s time to get back into it and kick things back into high gear. LEGO’s got some AWESOME things up the pipeline coming out next year and it’s time to share my enthusiasm for all things Friends. So, with that, let’s get back into the groove slowly but surely with an annual tradition of reviewing the Advent Calendar.
First up on day 1 we get Mia! She’s looking well dressed in her light purple cardigan, scarf, and dark pants. They’re probably dark jeans to keep things comfortable and casual. She’s one of the two exclusive minidolls in this set. She doesn’t come with any accessories, but I suppose that’s what the next few days will provide us and her with.
Onward and upward!
