Why not share this post!

Are you looking for non-chocolate advent calendars for toddlers? There are lots of different options out there and we've found some of the best toddler advent calendars for you. 

Advent Calendars for Toddlers 

"Can you recommend a toddler advent calendar?" is a question that is getting asked multiple times a day in our Facebook Group at the moment. I know it's something I was always on the lookout for too. 

While there are plenty of cheap chocolate advent calendars out there, if you're trying to avoid chocolate or would prefer something more substantial there are lots of other options out there too. 

I've put together some of the most recommended calendars that have been shared in our Facebook group and added in some of my favorite ones too! 

Reusable Felt Christmas Tree Calendar 

I love the idea of this felt advent calendar as it's great for younger toddlers. They get to take out a new stick on decoration each day and you get to start a tradition and use it every year. This felt tree advent calendar is available HERE on Etsy. 

Personalized Advent Calendars 

I really love personalized Christmas gifts  as they often become keepsakes too. This personalized advent calendar allows you to fill the boxes with your own ideas.  You can get this one HERE on Etsy. 

Hot Wheels Advent Calendar 

If you have a Hot Wheels fan then they'll love this advent calendar - it comes with 8 decorated cars and 16 accessories with one box to open each day. I really love that it also includes a fold out play mat for them to play with their new cars on! Recommended for 3+ and available HERE on Amazon

Little People Advent Calendar 

We've always love Little People and this advent calendar comes with a mix of little people and accessories including Santa and Mrs Claus! This one is recommended for ages 1-5 and is available HERE on Amazon.  

Crayola Advent Calendar 

If you are an arts and crafts fan then the Crayola Christmas countdown calendar is a great one to try. This one is recommended for ages 3+ due to some small parts. I love that the gifts can be used long after Christmas too! Available HERE on Amazon.

Disney Story Book Advent Calendar 

This is quite an impressive calendar! If you take a look at the reviews on Amazon you'll see that it's huge! It comes with 24 mini Disney books and is a great tradition to start. Available HERE on Amazon. 


Paw Patrol Advent Calendar 

For ages 3+ the Paw Patrol advent calendar has 24 Paw Patrol toys and accessories to play with - perfect if our toddler is a big Paw Patrol fan. Available HERE on Amazon 

Joyin Transport Advent Calendar 

I really like this calendar as there's a toy each day and they're also the kind of toys that can be kept and used for non-Christmas play too. Each toy is a pull back transport toy - lots of fun! Available HERE on Amazon. 

Joyin Mini Plush Advent Calendar

If your children are like mine and LOVE plush toys then this advent calendar will be popular. With a new mini plush each day this one is a favorite of mine. Available HERE on Amazon.
