Rated 4 out of 5 by Paula Children Love It!
my grandchildren LOVE this calendar. bright colors, each ornament is unique and very pretty, the tree and ornaments are well made, not flimsy. i would give it FIVE stars except for two things: 1) when the season is over, there is no way to store the ornaments. it would be nice to have a lid for the red box, or, even better, have the red box be detachable (with a lid) to be able lay flat for storage. 2) i realize there is a fine line on magnet strength; you don't want to have them stick TOO well or little hands can't take them off. the ornaments stay on without a problem; personal preference would be to have the magnets a little stronger. that being said, i will repeat that my grandchildren LOVE this calendar.

This was the perfect advent calendar for both my 2 year old and 4 year old grandsons. The two year old is a little young to understand time/days but he loved just playing with it so we talked about the ornaments, especially the star on top. His cousin, who is almost four, understood the concepts very clearly. It did help him be more patient as he had a better picture of the days! It is quite sturdy and colorful. I definitely recommend this product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Susan Very nice but not "religious".
I like this but was disappointed there were not many religious wooden magnets. I'd expected a less secular Advent Calendar. Still plan to gift it to our 4 young grandchildren for use next year but will keep looking for a more Christ centered one as well.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Christina Damaged during shipping but otherwise love it!
Item arrived slightly damaged (banged up along the edges during shipping) otherwise we are very happy with the calendar. My son loves putting up the ornaments every day. It definitely will be a yearly tradition to bring out the advent calendar each year.

Child who is 3 can decorate the tree by herself.

Perfect for what I was looking for. Magnets stay in place. Well made. I don't know if Melissa and Doug sell replacement ornaments, but my only concern is that my rugrats will lose some throughout the years. But that's kids for you...

Easy to use. Pretty beside our other decorations.
