We've purchased Playmobil Advent Calendars for the last four or five years. I prefer them to the chocolate calendars, as candy and cookie consumption are already a little high during December.
They're a fairly inexpensive way of adding Playmobil dolls and accessories, especially children and animals, which are my kids' favorite Playmobil toys.
My children gallop to the calendar first thing in the morning to open that day's box.
I have to admit that the dolls don't usually stay in the scene. The kids play with them along with their regular Playmobil stuff. They're pretty good about remembering to put them all back at the end of the day.
