Toy-filled advent calendars have become MASSIVE in Australia, and around the world. Kids love them because TOYS, and parents love them because they don't contain chocolate!
There are some absolute crackers available in 2018, and you can kind several options at Kmart, including Bloch Tech, LEGO, Ooshies and some exclusive Kmart advent calendars that are big on fun and low on cost.
Kmart Advent Calendars 2018
Kmart Australia has some exclusive advent calendars each year, and they are always popular - especially with parents who love the idea of a toy-filled advent calendar, but without a hefty price tag.
Bloc Tech Advent Calendar 2018
At just $9, the Block Tech Advent Calendar is even cheaper than last year (it was $10), but it's still packed with pieces that will thrill little brick-builders no end.
This calendar actually includes 243 pieces, a play mat and decorations, and what we love about it is that the brick pieces can used well beyond the festive period. Better still, all pieces are LEGO-compatible.
Stationery Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop
Stationery Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop is another exclusive Kmart advent calendar, and at just $10 it's a great alternative to the Smiggle Advent Calendar (which costs almost four times as much!).
Again, this is a very practical advent calendar, filled with pieces that will get used endlessly throughout the year ahead - all of it is great for those school pencil cases.
Contents includes a pen, pencil, glitter glue, mini tape, erasers, a spinning top, stackable pencil a notepad and loads more goodies to keep little students nice and busy.

LEGO Advent Calendars are always a hit, particularly the LEGO City and Star Wars editions, and the good news is that Kmart generally has the best prices on these in the country at $39 each.
