Big thanks going out to Want Not regular—if slightly mysterious—reader M, who pointed out this morning that the Star Wars Lego Advent Calendars are back in stock at Amazon. Do note that these aren’t exactly on sale, but these will be impossible to find as we get closer to Christmas, so if you missed it last time and want one without having to trade a kidney on eBay, get moving.
Alternatively, they also have the Lego City Advent Calendar in stock for $5 less. You don’t get Yoda in a Santa suit in that one, though.
And no, before I had kids the idea of dropping $35 or $40 on an Advent calendar filled with sharp tiny pieces I would later step on had never occurred to me as a viable scenario. I’m ashamed. A little. But you haven’t seen my kid’s dimples—they defy logic and common sense. It’s not my fault!
