The Disney Vinyl Tsum Tsum Advent calendar is starting to show up and stores and we take a look at what it contains (warning: Spoilers about the contents in the post)
First lets take a look at the front and back of the box:
The Calendar has 24 doors, one for each day of December leading up to Christmas. It includes a total of 6 Large Tsum Tsums (with Holiday Headbands), 6 Medium Tsum Tsums (the box says in Holiday Attire but that isn't completely accurate), 6 Small Tsum Tsums, and 6 Holiday Accessories.
So now lets start taking a look at what is inside each day!

Before making comments here are a few pictures of the unique accessories with Tsum Tsums:
Ok, so thoughts about this Advent Calendar. If you haven't been collecting the Vinyl Tsum Tsums and didn't get last year's Vinyl Advent calendar then it is pretty good with a good variety of characters and cute Holiday themed accessories; however, it does contain a lot of "regular" Tsum Tsums that have previous been available. Even the Christmas Mickey and Minnie were in last year's calendar. Some of the accessories are cute and the connectable reindeer headbands are a nice addition; however, some of the others (Christmas Present and cookie) are repeats from last year as well.
Overall I think there should have been more variety and new stuff given the cost. Last year at least all the mediums were Christmas themed (and they hadn't been released previously), all the accessories/headbands were new too so it was more worth it, and the Small sized Tsum Tsums were covered in glitter making them a little more unique too.
While this is a cute calendar and definitely a fun thing to get for Tsum Tsum fans there isn't enough unique about it to make it stand out.
