It will come as a surprise to no one that the LEGO Star Wars 75097 Advent Calendar Building Kit is already the top selling new building toy on Amazon.com, and promises to stay there right through to December.
When thinking about presents for children for the holiday, LEGO is usually high up on everyone’s list. When thinking about presents for children, boys are going to be especially excited for Star Wars. So why not combine the two? And why not combine the two, so they count the days to both Christmas and the new Star Wars movie? For that matter, why limit it to children? Adults love both LEGO and Star Wars too.
Like with any Advent Calendar, there are 24 doors on the box. Behind each of the doors is a small LEGO toy. One door is to be opened each day of December before Christmas.
Star Wars Advent Calendar is not your typical LEGO set. There is no main building activity, but there are 24 LEGO Star Wars gifts to enjoy. These gifts range from small ships of about half a dozen small pieces to assemble, to holiday themed droid minifigures.

What We Like About LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar
Advent Calendars are half the fun of the holiday season. Kids will go all day driven by the excitement of opening another door tomorrow. There is also the curiosity to find out what is behind each door and how it will fit into the story built by a fertile imagination.
The Star Wars design just enhances the anticipation and excitement for this year, because children and Star Wars fans will be working towards both the release of the new film, as well as December 25th.
The franchise tie-in with Star Wars makes this kit much more accessible than previous LEGO Advent Calendar offerings, such as LEGO City Town or LEGO Friends, which have much smaller followings. Because it’s LEGO, the toys won’t be forgotten so quickly. They can be amalgamated into larger LEGO playsets and collections.
