Advent calendars sure have come a long way since I was a kid. I had a few over the years, each being simply paper or cardboard with a piece of candy hidden inside a compartment when you pull back the cover on each date. Today? You’ll find calendars with Lego figurines and even one filled with socks from film series like Harry Potter and Star Wars.
New this season is an Advent calendar sure to be on the lists of both kids and adults, as it involves a month of holiday magic, courtesy of Disney. The Disney Animators’ Collection Littles Advent calendar will count down to Christmas from Dec. 1-24, with 24 figures or accessories inspired by “Tangled,” “Frozen” and “Lilo & Stitch.” It includes characters like Rapunzel, Pascal, Stitch, Lilo, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and others.
The $49.95 calendar features reinforced cardboard compartments, so you and your little ones won’t know which surprise awaits them until the tab is peeled back each day. Take a look at all 24 figurines and accessories below — all equally adorable!
It seriously makes every day of December like Christmas for a Disney lover.
Not into Disney, or don’t have children but still want to countdown to Christmas in style? No worries, there are quite a few adult-oriented Advent calendars to choose from online. From wine to whiskey and even cheese and lipstick, counting down the holidays has never been more fun (or delicious).
