What is an Advent calendar?

A traditional Advent Calendar is a Christmas scene printed on cardboard, with little paper windows – one for each day of Advent – which open to reveal further Christmas scenes, so the user can count the days to Christmas. Our digital Advent Calendar is much more exciting, of course, because the main scene and the daily surprises all come alive with music and animation!

Strictly, Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve, but most modern Advent Calendars – ours included – start the Christmas countdown on 1st December. We also depart from tradition by including Christmas Day itself!

I downloaded this 30 minutes ago and it's already crashed at least 10 times. Also my phone's overheating (new Samsung 22 Ultra so it's not a dinosaur). If you're doing any of the activities that are supposed to save your designs (snowflakes, gingerbread house, bird cakes ... yes all these have crashed already, within 30 mins of use) I recommend making your edits quickly and backing out to main screen often, before it crashes and you lose your design. Games also freeze. Good luck with this thing.

Really lovely, with lots of functionality. I love the layers of detailed background, being able to do things like pause on paintings in the art gallery to really study them, rotate and resize tree ornaments, and adjust audio settings. I didn't have any of the issues others have mentioned. There was an update that loaded as I installed it, so it seems to be fixed. The only thing I miss is the picture puzzles, but I haven't done all the activities yet either.

Downloaded the advent calendar to my android tablet and it can't run properly. I watched the first day's video clip today and when I hit the button to return to the main scene, the app crashed and closed itself. I reopened the app, found the elf, and clicked the button on the main scene to go inside the house (where the games are) - it crashed and closed again. Tried entering the house several times from the calendar menu and main scene - it crashed and closed every time. No quality control.
