This review is from: LEGO® City Advent Calendar 2824 (Toy)
We have enjoyed this calendar, the kids like it and the concept is great. There's just one small problem... I did not enjoy, nor did I appreciate the Santa Claus that came in the set. He is naked and taking a shower. I personally feel this was distasteful to include in an Advent Calendar

I totally agree with the creepy santa in a speedo in the shower. I posted the picture on facebook and my friends were also creeped out.

Wow, that was surprising to read. I nearly purchased this for my grandson. How rotten that this nice toy had to be ruined by an inappropriate Santa Claus. Playmobil should take notice here and take care of this child-unfriendly Christmas toy. Santa in a Speedo? Give me strength.

This is the first thing my son noticed in the tiny picture. We had a laugh about it because it is so creepy...what weirdo thought that up. Anyways, agreement here, thanks for the review!

we bought this for my daughter (and the lego star wars calendar for my son), and when we saw the "naked santa" in the picture, my daughter, son, husband, and myself all laughed...hysterically!!!! my daughter laughed and kept saying "ha ha, naked santa, naked santa!" it's actually one of the reasons why we picked this one instead of the other lego city advent calendar. we were not offended because, c'mon...it's a harmless little lego santa, and technically he does have a little black "speedo" on. it's just a funny, quirky addition to the advent calendar, and both my kids loved that it's unique and kooky, compared to the other same-as-the-rest, boring advent calendars out there!

Santa asks kids to sit on his lap...

That's pretty dirty.

How is it distasteful? It's very weird, but also funny and goofy, and not distasteful at all.

I did talk to LEGO. They admitted it was a mistake, apologized and sent us a new Santa - fully clothed. LEGO is awesome!
