Last year I ordered the LEGO Advent sets for the first time. I didn’t realize just how popular these sets would be, and my son loved them! I bought the Star Wars and the LEGO City sets and I couldn’t have been more pleased with them.
Well the 2018 sets have been on sale for a couple of months, and I’ve purchased the LEGO City set, and I’m about to buy our Star Wars set. I bought the LEGO City set when it was about $9 lower than it’s retail price. (Get it sooner, rather than later. You won’t be disappointed.)
The Star Wars set is about $6 lower than the retail price. I’m ordering it in the next day or so. When my son saw the City set, he mentioned that he really had wanted Star Wars. And it isn’t often you can find LEGO sets on sale.
Last year I let him open both sets every morning. This year I think we’re going to stick with one in the morning and one in the evening. The pieces build to make a more cohesive set, and they include some characters you may not see in other sets. I’m not as thrilled with the Star Wars set this year compared to last year, but I think we were spoiled last year. The pieces still look fun.
December is a tough month behavior-wise for us. Schedules are thrown off, and I do look for incentives for my son. He loves a behavior chart, and this gives me something to look forward to each day as we count down to Christmas.
Last year, these sets only went up in price – and I think they were unavailable at one point. I highly recommend buying one of the sets soon!
