A Festive Tradition
This festive Christmas tree-shaped wooden Advent calendar is an attractive addition to the holiday season. The painted tree with sparkling accents stands about 16 inches (40.64 centimeter) high in a sturdy wooden base that doubles as a box to hold the adorable ornament decorations. Each ornament is decorated differently in holiday patterns and Christmas themes. Choose a special one each day leading up to Christmas Day to create a sparkling and ever-changing piece of art that adds a festive air to any mantelpiece, table, or shelf. Mark the arrival of the big day by topping the tree with the sparkling star ornament. Add to the family’s holiday cheer by reading aloud the poem on the back of the tree -- as children get older, take turns reading the lines or stanzas. This special calendar is sure to be a family favorite year after year.
Decorating your Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar will not only become a highly anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote and reinforce many developmental skills as children grow from year to year. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to learn to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop color recognition and memory skills. For example, have kids find all of the ornaments that have red but no green or name all of the colors on individual ornaments. Or, ask them to choose five ornaments and study them carefully; then, have them to close their eyes while you remove one ornament. Can they guess which one is missing? The learning possibilities are endless!
Starting December 1, place a magnetic ornament on the tree!
Top the tree with a shining star magnet!
The attached wooden box stores all the magnets in one spot!
Holiday poem on the back encourages a festive read-aloud tradition!

-Easy for even little kids to do (great for toddler age)
-Glitter on the pieces and tree adds a little pizzazz to it
-Little tray is easy for clumsy fingers to do
-It's a generous size
-The tree is just a sticker on some thick board. When it arrived it already had started peeling on the top (see picture). We are going to have to baby it to make sure it doesn't peel more
-No cover for the tray of ornaments during storage. I wish either it came with a box for the whole thing or at least a cover for the tray. I will have to be very careful putting this away so we don't make it peel more than it already is and so that we don't lose any ornaments (I will probably just put them in a ziplock).
I was lucky to snag this on a lightening deal for $11.99, which I am happy with. If it were $19.99 I would be a little more annoyed at the peeling issue. If it lasts until kindergarten I'll be happy.
That said, I give it three stars because I expected the quality to be slightly higher. While the tree feels quite sturdy, the paper that is pasted on (the green part, or background, of the tree) is already starting to peel away on the corners. A few of the ornaments already started to peel, as well, and I've had to use hot glue to fix them.
All in all, I love the look and I the idea, but the execution is far from perfect. Some Melissa and Doug items are such wonderful quality, but I find that anything with images (like puzzles or something like this tree) have the sad tendency to peel, flake, or otherwise scratch away.
