I still gave this 3 stars since my daughter loves the Minions, and Lego didn't have anything she was really fond of.
TL;DR: Cute Minion figures, terrible plastic bricks, bad molding, unimaginative models, misleading illustration.
Mega Bloks makes better posable minifigures than Lego, but everything else about their sets is inferior, or at the very least, inconsistent quality. They're marketed as being "compatible" but Mega Bloks bricks feel cheaper than Lego, and are frequently poorly molded, leading to build issues and frustration, as noted by many other reviewers here.
This set is ~1/3 the price of a comparable Lego advent calendar, and it shows. The cardboard is thin and rips easily, the compartments are not well sealed and contents will spill from one calendar day into another. The model images pictured on the front are misleading, as they grossly out of scale. For example, the "tree" is barely taller than a Minion figure, and the "stocking" is almost as big as the tiny fireplace it's pictured hanging from, something it cannot actually do either. As I said, (and it can't be overstated) the bricks are poorly molded from cheap plastic, and the bricks with designs printed on them, such as the gingerbread man and the snowman, are crooked and poorly applied.
As for the builds themselves, they are mostly unimaginative and overly simplified; Lego makes much better use of a limited number of parts to produce a clever little kit. Some of the items, such as the Jelly Jar, Fart Gun, Water Cooler, and Unicorn are clever nods to the Despicable Me movies. Only a few of the items are technically "Holiday-themed," which I suppose makes this set a little more palatable to those of varying religious persuasions, and gives some of the accessories year-round play value.
The 3 Minion minifgures are cute and very posable, something Mega Bloks does very well. They are spaced out so you will get basically one figure per week, and they will never lack for things to interact with. These Minions and are wearing seasonal red and green overalls but are otherwise identical to the minions in other Mega Bloks sets. The arms can be notoriously difficult to get in; as others have suggested, try running the figure under hot water before popping in the ball joint, and try to work it in from the side rather than jam it in directly.
This has provided a lot of fun opening the days.
