This impressive German advent calendar is extra large at 19.5 inches! Bears, cats, dogs and various critters sail on their Christmas themed tall ship to the North Pole. The ocean swells with holiday festivities; an octopus holds candles forming a aquatic advent wreath, seals with angel wings sing carols and penguins, polar bears & arctic turns offer presents to the merry crew. A Christmas tree tops one of the masts and Santa tosses treats to the fish. A red border frames the delightful scene.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
