Santa's Railroad Advent Calendar
What you get
This product will not be restocked in 2022, but the Christmas Village Advent Calendar is available while supplies last!
Hop aboard Santa’s railroad and count down to Christmas with 24 days of presents! Open a new envelope each day, then follow the step-by-step instructions inside to build a new piece of your North Pole railroad wonderland — from Santa’s sleigh to a snowy mountain to some busy li’l elves. What will you uncover next? Maybe a polar bear? Maybe jolly old St. Nick himself? Anything is possible on this fast track to hands-on holiday fun. Now that’s the ticket!

• Includes a jam-packed supply kit full of felt, foam, yarn, stencils, and more — everything you need to complete and customize each project.
• Includes instructions and materials to string up the envelopes into a festive holiday garland.
• The completed scene includes Santa’s workshop, a train station, a 3-piece train, a mountain pass, elves, a reindeer, sleigh, Santa himself — plus 3 lights to lend a cozy glow to your North Pole diorama. And more!
• This project can stand alone or be displayed with the Christmas Village Advent Calendar.
• Dimensions for completed display: approximately 36 x 12 inches (92 x 31 cm) or more — feel free to spread out!
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“You can’t have a cozy Christmas scene without some holiday glow! That’s why we included a pair of lampposts and a light-up furnace with the build — to add a little warmth to your wintry wonderland. ”

Saving this for my class to put together leading up to the winter break, but from what I’ve opened it looks fantastic. Enough envelopes for every student to open and build one, and the pieces are good quality. My only complaint is that the smaller pieces like mini dowels fall out of the envelope, so more secure packaging would be great.
