Opened day one last night, and there was nothing behind the window. Opened the package to find that several products were missing... Photos attached. Was excited for some fun time with my toddler counting down to Christmas and completing the activities, but that's hard to do when you're missing several pieces.
Her being two, I have not held her to opening only one flap a day, and just let her pull two or three things out at a time, in no particular order. For the most part, the items have been great, though altogether I am not at all convinced they would value the $18-$20 dollar price tag that Amazon charges (Full disclosure, I got mine as a warehouse deal for $5, and I feel like that's about what the supplies are worth). So far there have been about 8 crayons, 4 scented markers and 2 mini markers, a couple of very small packs of modeling clay, a set of watercolor paints (definitely for an older child), a crayon sharpener, a large twist up crayon, and a pack of color-in cards and sticker sheets that comprise the Xmas activity pack. So, sum total value probably in the 5 to 10 dollar range.
My main complaint has to do with the scented markers included in this set. Apparently they are part of Crayola's scented "Doodle Scents" line, and hew pretty far from what one might consider "normal" scents for a coloring item. The first two were OK, strawberry and cotton candy (DD loved those), but the third one got a bit weird ("Breath of Air" - not a concept a child can really grasp in terms of smell...), and then the 4th was simply revolting: "Barnyard", which smells like straight animal urine, and will ostensibly cause your home and child to do the same. It went immediately into the garbage, and really left me scratching my head about what Crayola may possible have been thinking by including such an honestly disgusting product in a child's art kit.
So, bottom line, this is a great concept for an advent calendar (no sugar here, and lots of imaginative fun), a not-so-great value at full price (definitely contains no more than $5-$10 dollars of supplies), and a really terrible implementation in terms of at least a couple of the products (animal musk is a REALLY unwelcome addition to my home's holiday festivities). But my two-year-old happily covered herself in the better smelling strawberry marker and it was really ease to wash off, so that is a plus as well.
Word of advise - parents need to peek at the activity sheet before the kids. A couple of days have 2 sheets, some days have none. But the directions for the activity are on the inside of numbered "door" on the front of he calendar. READ THESE. For example - Day 4 says to color an ornament and decorate it with stickers. When you go to pull the activity sheet from the No Peeking folder, there will be a wreath ornament plus a second sheet with stickers to color.
Update: there is an opening on the back of the box that you are supposed to open day 1. It actually DOES have a daily project. You pull out one sheet each day. We missed it because we were only focused on the front of the box. Luckily my son found the door (day 17..) updating to 5 stars because the little projects look like fun and more of what I was expecting.
Crayola has put thought into the random items giving children experience with the variety of Crayola products there are.
The problem was the box, when my child opened a day on this calendar, the others were so close that it would open another days item. By day 13, the box was torn apart, losing the element of surprise that an advent calendar provides a child.
Again, the items inside were great but the box has been poorly designed.
