Kids love toys.
If your kids love toys and you want to get them an advent calendar that makes their face light up every day for 24 days, a toy advent calendar is a safe bet.
There’s almost an option for every favorite toy a kid has. Here’s a look at some of them.
Lego-Branded Advent Calendars
There are so many Advent Calendars for Lego-lovers. I kind of love these (a lot) because it forces kids to make something. They can be pricey, though, so shop early! Or maybe get them after the season for next year if there are any left. Let’s take a look at some of the more common types.
Lego City Town Advent Calendar Building Kit
This Lego City advent calendar is awesome on so many levels. It’s legos. It’s a holiday scene. It’s affordable. And it’s the one I opted to get for my son this year.
- 2 Firefighters
- 2 Ice Hockey Players
- A Volcano Worker
- A Volcano Adventurer
- A dog
- The rest are a combination of seasonal or city buildings, vehicles, and items (including a Christmas Tree!)
Love it? Buy the Lego City Town Advent Calendar (pictured above) on Amazon. You can also still purchase previous versions of this calendar that come with different scenes. Click here to view on Amazon.
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Building Set
OMG. Star Wars Legos are the best. So popular. So fun. If there’s one thing I know about Star Wars it is that kids who love the series never outgrow it. So this is something that has the possibility of being a true annual tradition. Now I’m kind of wishing I didn’t get the Lego City Town set and bought this one for my Star Wars-loving son.
- 8 mini figures (including a Battle Droid and holiday-themed exclusive)
- 10 vehicles (which are all Star Wars-related except for the sleigh)
- 6 Star Wars-related weapons…

Lego Friends Advent Calendar Building Set
So one set explores another galaxy, one set keeps you chilly outside, and this set helps you stay warm inside. The Lego Friends Advent Calendar set is all about what’s happening around the Christmas Tree in the living room. One feature this Lego set has that the other doesn’t is an interactive-online tool. Visit the Lego site each Sunday before Christmas and on Christmas Eve to get instructions on turning the pieces opened into another mini build. Cool.
- 2 mini figures
- The rest are buildable surprises including things like a Christmas Tree, musical instruments, DJ table, hamster, gifts, fireplace, snowman, and ice skates.

Mega Bloks Advent Calendars
Like Lego, there are several options for Mega Blok fans.
**Please note that there have been several reviews stating how hard Mega Bloks are to put together. If you’re familiar with the brand and still enjoy them, then you may still want to purchase a Mega Blok Advent Calendar set. Otherwise, it’s probably best not to use this time (and 24 days) to find out if you like them.
Mega Bloks Minions Movie Advent Calendar
These little guys have so much personality. I love that they can possibly wreck havoc on your Advent Calendar Plans… ha ha. This cute set is sure to bring a smile to any kid’s face.
Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Advent Calendar
The ninja turtles dare you to add a little ninja and turtle to your holiday season. I guess because I’m pretty sure that there is not a lot of either. But, that’s ok. Kids Love them.
Mega Bloks Monster High Advent Calendar
If you love Monster High nothing will stop you from making them part of your holiday celebration. Nothing.
What’s Included in Mega Bloks Advent Calendars
There is no specific breakdown of what is included. You can expect 24 themed and holiday-related Mega Bloks.

One dress for your barbie, one or two accessories for the child opening the gifts, and the rest are accessories like shoes and handbags. There are several options available, so take a look at the accessories to get one you prefer. Here are the options based on the color of the accessories.

Angry Birds Advent Calendar Game
If your kids have the patience of an angry bird, it may be better to skip this particular Advent Calendar. Why? Because the ultimate goal is to build a game. So, if they love to play games this could be a great fit. Since Angry Birds is, basically, knocking pigs off their ledges, expect several days of ledge opening. Still, this could be an Advent Calendar that continues to bring fun after the holiday season is over.
- 1 Launcher
- 2 Angry Birds
- 2 Pigs
- Mission Cards
- The rest are blocks to build the the game with
