I don't usually buy sets these days, and even though I'm a Town/City fan I wasn't overly excited about the Police theme in the advent calendar. But I think as a whole it has a good selection. Even if you don't like the models provided, there's a good choice of parts to use in your own creations. The highlight of the set for me is the hoodie minifigure, which stands out visibly from the rest of the set and looks the most desirable. I'm not sure what his actual role is, but I'll probably find myself collecting a few of those torsos. The safe and the police dog are also great. I think the price point is slightly high, even though it's priced less than last year's calendar (at GBP 24.99), but I suppose it's justified when taking packaging into account. It might be worth grabbing one of these closer to the big day, hopefully when they're discounted.

This advent calendar is a lot of fun. There is a lot of variety in the items to build and some of the different days are the same item put together to have one large item. It wasn't as Christmas themed as I originally figured it would be, but had remembered it is a Lego City calendar which is how it sounds. This particular calendar had a couple of "convict" mini figs and a cop, and had a small police station and jail. There was also a couple of snow mobiles and police car to build. It did include a Christmas tree and presents to try and keep the holiday theme. There are a lot of small pieces to keep in mind for anyone with young children. Each day has about one extra Lego piece for the small parts of the item to build. It was tough waiting each day to have to open each one up to see what was inside to build. Would recommend this to anyone with children or adults to love Lego's, like myself. Will definitely be purchasing these calendars from now on every year.
