It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas. With a nationwide heat wave occurring, the thought of possibly waking up to a blanket of snow sounds delightful. While that's not likely to happen for a few more months, we can take solace in knowing it's never too early to start shopping for the holidays.
Advent calendars have emerged in popularity over recent years, with themes ranging from cheese to skincare options. One that particularly caught our eye (and is fun for the entire family) was the Disney: Storybook Collection Advent Calendar. Perfect for any child and the young at heart, it's available for pre-order for only $32 on Amazon.
"I have bought one of these advent calendars for the past three years, and my kid loves reading one book a night. He gets so excited to see what the next one will be," wrote one satisfied customer.
Another happy reviewer added: "I have been buying new Advent calendars every year. The kids always outgrew the Advent toys, this one they won’t outgrow. I bought this one and we are going to keep it as our new tradition! It was exciting to guess what the book might be, and it was heartwarming for the kids and I to cuddle up and read these. The stories are good enough, some better than others; which lead to nice family discussions. I love love love this! The calendar even looks like a giant book! So cute! Can’t tell you how happy I am with this! No defects, it’s perfect!"
"The calendar arrived promptly, in excellent condition, with no damage," one more raved. "The calendar itself is wonderful, and very special! I get it every year for my grandson. There are new stories every year, and he is so excited to open and read one each night at bedtime. Plus, they are books that can be saved and read at any time!"
For the person that's strictly interested in Disney princesses, there is also one dedicated completely to their love of Tiana, Cinderella and Pocahontas. That's also available for pre-order ahead of its September 13 release.
