I have the children aged 4, 7 and 8. We received our first lot of Christmas countdown letters last year and they were fantastic. My kids where so excited to find the next letter and see what antics the elves had been up to. They especially loved Marty the mischievous elf. The letters are a wonderful way of bringing that extra sparkle and magic to Christmas and will definitely be one our traditions for the years to come. I highly recommend them.
