This German advent calendar, originally printed in 1988, features a free standing 3D design that folds out to display the shop. The Christmas shop is full of mouth watering sweets, toys and boxes with surprises. The shop is decorated with garlands and a Christmas tree. The shopkeeper smiles sweetly at the child on tiptoes peeking over the counter at all the wonders.
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.
