When I was a kid, the only advent calendars I ever knew about were the ones filled with little pieces of chocolate. Aldi’s and Amazon still sell these – they’re filled with German chocolate – and they’re still amazing.
But there are so many more options for advent calendars now, and a lot of them can be used year after year. Here are more than 15 of my favorite Advent Calendars for Toddlers, including the one I ordered this year for Camden!

Classic Advent Calendars for Toddlers
Melissa and Doug Magnetic Countdown Tree Advent Calendar
This calendar is a basic, classic Advent calendar. It is tree shaped and has a circle for each of the 24 days of December leading up to Christmas. Toddlers can pick and place a magnet for each day to cover the circle. Because it’s a wooden tree, it would be a cute decoration to set up each year!
Wooden Fillable Advent Calendar with LED lights
I love the look of this classic wooden advent calendar. The scene on top lights up, and the little boxes are perfect for stickers or small treats or trinkets.
Nativity Scene Wooden Advent Calendar
There are 3 different styles of this calendar: the one pictured above, a nativity scene on top with boxes underneath, and a gorgeous sledding scene.
Disney Advent Calendars for Toddlers
Disney Christmas Storybook Collection Advent Calendar
This is the one I picked for our family, and I could not possibly be more excited about it! There are 24 Disney storybooks to count down the days until Christmas, one for each day. We love to read every single day, and instead of doing a 12 days of unwrapping books, I thought this would be fun! Plus you can mix up the order of the stories every year if you want!
Toy Story 4 Movie Advent Calendar
If your child is a Toy Story fan, this is the calendar for them. This Advent calendar for toddlers features all the characters from the Toy Story 4 movie, as well as stickers and a surprise on December 24th!
Paw Patrol Advent Calendar
If your toddler loves Paw Patrol like mine does, this Paw Patrol advent calendar for toddlers is perfect! It includes all the Paw Patrol pups, as well as accessories like a snow slide, Christmas tree, snowboard and more to get kids’ imaginations going! This one is definitely one of my favorites, too.
Disney Pixar Cars Advent Calendar
Camden loves watching Cars 3 on Netflix and this is a super cute Advent calendar scene to go along with it! I wish I could get him 10 calendars this year. Haha.
Mickey Mouse Advent Calendar (Amazon Exclusive)
I’m loving this Mickey Mouse calendar! My kid is just starting to get into Mickey, so this might be a great option for next year. This calendar comes with 11 characters, stickers, and customizable decorations.
Disney Jr. Advent Calendar
We haven’t hit the Disney Jr. phase yet, but I would love to get this calendar when Camden gets into these shows. It’s so cute! Your child gets 11 figures of their favorite characters like Doc McStuffins, Puppy Dog Pals, and Mickey and Minnie, as well as accessories, stickers and decorations to go with the characters.
Miscellaneous Advent Calendars for Toddlers
Thomas and Friends Minis Advent Calendar
If your toddler loves trains and/or Thomas, this is the option for you! I’m in love with this one, because it includes 24 mini trains. None of the days are just accessories or decorations – your child gets a new mini train every day!
Peppa Pig Advent Calendar
Every day is a Peppa Pig-themed surprise in this two-sided calendar! There are multiple character figures, as well as accessories and play items to go with the characters.
Pull-Back Vehicles Advent Calendar
This calendar features 24 pull-back-and-let-go vehicles; one for each day until Christmas. What a great collection!
World of Eric Carle Pop Up Snow Calendar
If your toddler loves Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar author) or pop-up books and crafts, this would be a great calendar! Each day features a pop-up item that adds to the Christmas scene. When it’s finished, it makes a beautiful decoration or gift from your child to someone.
PlayMobil Horse Farm Advent Calendar
This is cute if you’ve got a horse lover or if you’re looking for a non-Christmas themed countdown. The horse Advent calendar includes a horse, two foals, two ponies, three people and a bunch of accessories to create a horse playland. Once the holiday season is over, kids can keep the horse stuff out to play with or you can put it away for the next year.
V-Tech Smart Wheels Advent Calendar
We are huge VTech Smart Wheels fans here at our house, and if I hadn’t chosen the Disney storybook calendar, this would definitely have been the next choice! This Advent calendar for toddlers one includes a Smart Wheels Christmas train – how fun to add to your toddler’s collection of Smart Wheels! – as well as 2 ornaments and lots of accessories to play with!
