The Packaging

You can’t fail to notice the advent calendar, with its trademark purple box. The graphics on the front of the box are similar to the set from last year, and most visibly there isn’t a dedicated Father Christmas/Santa outfit this time around. You’ll also notice the appearance of a squirrel!

The back of the box gives you an idea of what to expect, as we’d expect, including some ideas for scenarios you can set up using the models. Also, you know, if you’re feeling generous, you can buy some of these carefully selected Friends sets to make LEGO’s day.

As with the [set number=60024]City Advent Calendar[/set], the box has a lid that opens up to reveal a Christmassy night-time scene, as well as the 24 numbered panels. Yes, once again I’m going old school, because I’ve had trouble opening the time space continuum (which is how most of us get plain white backgrounds).
