I remember as a child every morning in December being so excited to open a door on my Advent calendar. Back then it was just a piece of chocolate — and not even good chocolate at that — but it was still fun to open that little cardboard door to see what animal or character was behind it.
Fast forward to the present, and now there are so many kinds of Advent calendars for kids of all ages, including Disney lovers, Marvel and Star Wars aficionados, and we can’t forget fans of Universal properties like Harry Potter and Jurassic Park. Just in time for December, we’ve collated a collection of our favorites below and some of them are even on sale for Black Friday.
