Which One to Buy?


Both of the sets mentioned are unique in their own way. Falling around the same price range and both featuring the high-quality design and construction LEGO is known for, the better of the two is a difficult choice. In reality one is not better than the other we think if comes down to personal preference. Each set has its own setup and custom Christmas themed pieces and each set offers a 24-day countdown. While many people around the world are Harry Potter fans; not everyone has partaken in the global phenomenon making the LEGO city advent calendar set a more universal choice. Instead of Harry Potter characters, you will find holiday staples and cheerful LEGO city citizens.

The Harry Potter advent calendar comes with more pieces, especially because of the dinner theme and dining hall set but the extra pieces shouldn’t be a reason to purchase one over the other. So, if your family has read the saga, watched the movies a million times and enjoy the entire story of the young wizard, you’ll want to go with the movie themed set. Each one comes with connecting blocks and universal pieces that can be combined with original LEGO sets giving families a chance to build creative designs together adding to the homely feelings that only the holidays can produce. Both of these advent calendars are a perfect addition to holiday traditions bringing out the kid in even the oldest and grumpiest of people.
