Last year we broke with tradition and got our son one of the LEGO Star Wars Calendar 2011 sets rather than a traditional chocolate advent calendar, why they have become traditional I do not know.
Although we are not a religious family I feel advent calendars are a nice thing for children who can't fail to get excited about Christmas 2012.
The LEGO Star Wars Calendar 2012 is a very similar idea to the previous year ones that were immensely successful with children around the world.
You get a small LEGO Mini-figure or a small model everyday up until Christmas!

LEGO Star Wars Calendar 2012 Review
So lets take a look at what lovely LEGO Star Wars toys are going to be in the box this year. As I mentioned we got last years for our Son and we found the sets were just right for him to build himself (he was 3 at the time).
So like last year this LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2012 will contain 24 fantastic toys for your children to collect in the run up to Christmas.
This includes 9 LEGO Minifigures and some of these are ones you will not have seen before so its definitely a must for all those young and old (;)) LEGO Star Wars fans out there.
There are loads of little mini ships and I'm happy to see there is an AtAt, they are flipping ace and I love seeing how those clever chaps and chapesses at LEGO have worked out how to make incredibly realistic ships within the confines of the LEGO System.
I'm assuming that the Father Christmas styled Darth Maul is the fantastic LEGO Star Wars Minifigure you will get on Crimbo eve day, and I have to say its a right cracker!
Yes the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2012 is a quite lavish Advent Calendar but as a LEGO fan it appealed to me because not only does your Son/Daughter get a cool toy to build with a play with each day, they also get to add this to their LEGO collection for ever.
In contrast if you have a chocolate one the the pleasure is over in a mouthful and even then more often than not the chocolate is sub par rankness, well not that many kids would complain about that!
All in all I highly recommend this LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2012 and we will be getting one for our son this Christmas.
