so I got my advent calendar! It did not take long to arrive :) I was however, happy that I only paid the $260 for it because it's not worth the full price of $500. It's well made (plastic), detailed, and pretty sturdy, but for $500 I would expect more than a plastic house. So, if you're going to get it, definitely get it at the sale price. Oh and it looks really pretty at night when it's lit up. I also assumed, because I didn't read the description properly, that it would need to be plugged in, but it's battery operated (3X AA).
I was a little apprehensive when ordering due to price & ltd. amount available but so happy with it. Very fine details & great illumination. I was expecting porcelain (product detail did not state what it was made of or how it was powered; battery) but happy with the heavy plastic. Lighter & less fragile. I am very happy with it & consider it a great value (less than $300.00 with tax).
I have been wanting this advent calendar for years!! Finally decided to give in and get it because it's such a great price now (and I was driving my husband crazy!). Can't wait to get it! I'll update my review when I actually have it in my hands :) I'm just so excited I had to post something!!
