I brought these advent letters while at the spirit of Christmas. I was draw in by the feel and look of the actual letters. It all looked so magical. My son is autistic and loves a map. He is now totally obsessed with the North Pole map that comes with the set. I knew he would be and I was worried that the letters would make this worse for him. My worries were totally wiped away on day two. He is so excited to see his letter poking out of the letter box each morning. He loves the mischief and adventures the elf’s are on. It’s actually helped his huge and sometimes uncontrollable excitement for Christmas. His little sister really loves them too and it’s bringing out such love and sharing between them. The last couple of days I have heard the latest elf adventure being acted out in their play. I want to say thank you to the lady who listen to my concern and didn’t push me into buying them when she heard my reason. These letters really are making our Christmas this year. They are what Christmas is. Magical joyful and giving. My one bad point is that I am having to read each letter every night. Christmas eves bedtime is going to be a very long one. I would highly recommend these letter for anyone that really loves the magic of Christmas.
