Will be back in 2023!



WE ARE NOW SOLD OUT! We'll be back with an all new Advent Calendar in 2023!

The ProjectPlay Christmas Advent Calendar is back!

New and improved, this year we have created the ultimate eco-friendly loose parts Advent Calendar that will not only grow with your child, but the bags can be re-used for years to come with future Advent Calendars! The perfect open-ended gift for Christmas!

Each Kiwiana inspired 'Swanndri' cotton bag, designed exclusively by ProjectPlay, contains one loose part from our range (some of which contain a special edition piece). Opening one bag each day, by Christmas, your little one will have their very own 24 piece heuristic play set to treasure. Imagine your little one's joy, opening each bag and discovering a world of opportunities for their play!

Choose your Advent Calendar with a beautiful Hogla rope basket, so your 24 piece loose part set has something to be stored in... Or go without the basket and hang the 24 bags, as decorations on your Christmas tree!
