As a kid in Sunday School, I loved flannelgraph stories. This is a perfect nostalgia item and also loved by ALL kids. A hands-on way for kids to think of what really happened at Christmas while they arrange and re-arrange the pieces each day. Perfect item!! Love it!
I love the Peanuts Christmas movie and so does the rest of my family, husband included. I was very excited to find this and didn't even mind much paying full price for it (we really wanted a real Advent calendar that reflected our faith and would be enjoyed by our son). However, this is flimsy and not likely to hold up for more than a few years. The backing is lightweight foam board and could bend very easily. The felt sags away from the board already after a single season's use. Also, it is VERY crowded once all of the characters are in place. It should have either been scaled up or the character size scaled down - we left a few of the less important pieces off because there was just no room for them. Overall, we will keep it but I am very disappointed with the quality - it is quite poor.
I gave this advent set as a gift to two young fellows and they loved it and so did their mama. It is of exceptional quality and lots of fun.
The kids are taking turns adding the pieces to the calendar every day. They haven't missed a day! We love it!
Sent it as a gift so I have not seen it but I know it was received in a timely matter.
