Shopping for a Christmas gift for kids that would create a perfect bonding experience? There are just a couple of toys that give kids engagement and educational value that they would truly enjoy, but with the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, it’s guaranteed to become a hit.
Advent Calendar 2017
By Having This LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar set, kids can open a window daily to reveal one LEGO Star Wars gift. They’ll have 24 days with 24 different gifts to keep excited about, providing a new profound way of practicing patience through play.
This LEGO Star Wars set includes a variety of Christmas, Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, and Space-themed LEGO gifts. There’s five minifigures, two holiday-themed Droids, and vehicles just like a LEGO sleigh (how adorable is that), A-wing Starfighter, AT-AT, Sandcrawler, Star Destroyer, Millennium Falcon, and Jabba’s Sail Barge, to name a few. There are also a wide range of tiny, LEGO gears, including the Hoth command post, gun turret, Ewok weapon rack, blaster rack, catapult, and more.
What’s great about the pieces for this LEGO set is that a lot of the weapons and vehicles may be moved and adjusted as you please. Prefer to adjust the sail of Jabba’s Sail Barge? You can! While they’re tiny, these minifigures are exceptionally well-thought-of, and you can never fail with a LEGO Star Wars set.
LEGO Fold-Out Playmat
If you’re a LEGO or Star Wars fan, whether you’re the parent or kid, you’ll definitely love looking into the modern ‘Surprise Egg’ version with this Advent calendar. And since it includes an awesome-looking, fold-out playmat designed with Star Wars scenes, having fun with the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar might be a tradition that your family could cherish for several years.
Pros and Cons
If you’re a fan of LEGO’s Star Wars minifigures, you’ve probably been waiting for this year’s set for a while, and would love everything about it from its box to the tiny plastic partition minifigures are placed. But if you don’t share the love for Star Wars or anything LEGO-related, this gift won’t please you at all.

Note that a few people who bought LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2017 complain of not having any Star Wars-themed pieces, which seems to become a packaging problem from LEGO. The upside though, is that complain to LEGO once about it, and the company would make things right super-quickly.
If you’re searching for an actual Christmas gift for kids that they’ll be opening in addition to the remaining gifts under your tree, note that the LEGO’s advent calendar isn’t exactly ideal since all purpose of the game is to have fun with it 1 day each time, 24 days daily until Christmas day.
The ‘Surprise Egg’ model to count down Christmas with the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2017 version is a unique and fun experience for kids and adults alike. With daily gifts presented in a cool, neatly-organized box, Christmas will arrive faster than you can say “May the Force be with You!”
While you ‘d think this would make a great Christmas-day gift for your tiny Sith Lords, consider this LEGO kit as an advanced-Christmas gift and you’re good to go. If this is the very first time you ‘d be buying an Advent calendar from LEGO, explain to your kid that this Advent Calendar is a special type of Christmas gift that he/she will be opening daily until Christmas. You ‘d be amazed at how thrilling this “unique” experience might be to kids.
