When I was a child Advent Calendars only came in one variety – the chocolate kind purchased at the grocery store. You can still find simple chocolate advent calendars at the supermarket – but I have to admit, I kind of love being able to skip the sugar and get my kids excited about fun toys, collectibles and books each December morning!
With five kids to buy for I spend a lot of time looking at advent calendars, and I’ve used that time to come up with a list of 24 amazing Advent Calendars for the 2019 holiday season!
From licensed toys and board books to collectibles and art supplies, here are some of the most exciting 2019 Advent Calendars for kids!
This is always one of our favorite advent calendars – with 24 mini Thomas & Friends engines (6 are exclusive Christmas engines!) kids will love discovering a new train each day, and this is a great way to grow their collection!
Superhero (and villain!) fans will love this collectible calendar, featuring 24 mini Marvel Funko Pops!

This re-usable advent calendar is my personal favorite. Fill it with treats year after year – it’s especially great if you have multiple kids. I am able to fit treats inside for all five of my children so that I avoid having to buy five separate calendars each year and I can customize the treats to their current interests! This one goes out of stock pretty often, so make sure to check back if it’s not currently available!

Each day reveals a new book. When read in order they tell the Story of Christmas and include a golden thread to hand from the tree. A lovely set with beautiful illustrations!
