Out of the 4 candles, one never worked and the other three broke within a couple days of using them. They looked amazing for the couple mins they worked but definitely poorly made. There are probably better quality products at the dollar store.
I use a lot of candles and these candles were, in comparison, very not good quality. I would not buy. They might be but not worth it. They burned very quick (not amazing for advent) and the dripped (never good).
This product is just what we wanted. We have had significant difficulty over the years purchasing amazing quality Advent candles at a reasonable price. When an LED set became available it seemed to be a solution to our annual issue. Unfortunately, the quality is very poor. One of the candles only worked for approximately a week. Another stopped working and then worked intermittently. Two others functioned.I changed the batteries, checked the contact points and examined the units. Nothing created a difference in their performance.I intend to return this product.
These candles are a amazing concept, but they fail to perform as promised. I bought two sets, and both sets have candles that lost their inner ring within the first loading of batteries! So we either have to hold them on continuously, or not at all. It's very frustrating.
Amazing look but one candle only lasted 2 weeks AND i only turned it on and opened battery compartment once. The whole part of the candle that screws in and out to put batteries in it came out and botttom will not stay in candle so one advent candle is not working :/
Ordered these candles for my church's advent wreath. After one use, the candles were already broken. One candle came broken and the on/off switch wouldn't even work. I would not recommend these.
Most of the time you are going to obtain the same bag of gummies, maybe with some shape or color difference. I guess this is to be expected, given that's what Haribo is known for. The other candies within the calendar were very amazing when they did crop up, but they felt a small few and far between. The sour gummies weren't what I was expecting as an American consumer. I was expecting more like Sour Patch, what they are is more like a blood orange flavor, still beautiful good, but very various from typical "sour" candy in the US. Packaging held up well and things didn't escape into other days. The artwork on the front is divisive, mates that I've showed it to weren't fans, I didn't mind it much, but it's very much on brand with Haribo.
I bought this for one of my grandsons who has a serious peanut allergy. My daughter told me it was absolutely elegant with plenty of jellies and was worth every penny! She said the presentation was gorgeous as well. I'm glad to hear this as I was curious about the higher compared to other Advent calendar choices that did not appear to be definitely nut in the manufacturing facilities.
My 3 year old and 4 year old boys loved making these candles with a small support from mom. They are beautiful, smokeless and dripless. I love them and will be buying them every year! The project only took about 30 mins total, and was simple enough for my children to do with me.
We thought this android game was perfect perfect because it was christmas eve when we got it looks like kid noticed it and i saw it but it did look that amazing after i got it for apt bit but when we got it done it was amazing but the joke when was better thank you
Amazing item! My son doesn’t like chocolate, so it was amazing to search an advent calendar with gummies. Amazing dozens of treats: little picks of mini gummies, chews, huge Christmas shaped gummies. Item was fresh. Will definitely again next year if available.
As I prefer to use blue rather than purple for Advent, I was satisfied to search this candle set. But they burn very fast--if I had burned them every day of Advent, they wouldn't have lasted--and wax ran down all over my candle holders and onto the fabric beneath my Advent wreath. Next year I'll look for dripless candles, even if it takes longer to search them in the right colors.
This was exactly what I was hoping for. For years we have given our children an advent calendar with chocolates inside to build the excitement and fun of awaiting Christmas. My youngest however, doesn’t like chocolate all that much so I’ve been searching for an alternative and this is perfect. He is living the dozens of the candies included which is more than just the standard delicious Haribo gummi bears.. we have discovered fresh candies that we’ll be unlikely to search after Christmas since they aren’t commonly sold in the US.
This is a fun Advent calendar, exposing my kids to various gummy options famous in Europe. It is a amazing method to introduce them to a candy without needing to huge quantities. When I purchased I did not attention that this is a German calendar, which was a amazing addition to the UK calendar I purchased as well!
I was looking for Advent calendars for my boys - something various and fun. They are really enjoying this so far. When they give me a gummy treat from their calendar, I think they taste a bit stale and hard. But the children have no complaints. The only thing they absolutely didn't like so far was the round, ropey looking thing. They said it had a really powerful orange chemical taste and they both threw theirs away. And they both say they will "be angry when they begin the other one" (since there are two of those included). It's a bit expensive - probably $3-$4 worth of candy for $20, but it makes my boys satisfied and gives them something to look forward to every morning.
We obtain this every year to roll our own advent candles and my children always look forward to this activity! The kit is well-made and comes with very detailed instructions as well as some info on how to use the candles for Advent. We will hold getting this each year!
The quality is low. Latest year we went through three or four sets of these and then went without candles for the latest half of Christmas. This year luckily I forgot to additional sets. I created a last-minute trip to Globe Shop and bought their 2-packs of candles. Those have lasted us through the latest week of Advent and 11 days of Christmas. We'll never these again. It's convenient to this set, but it's a huge waste of to candles that burn so quickly.
This application works beautifully - if you wait until Dec 1st! It doesn't let you to cheat. The only slight downside is that it will stop of your screen times out, so you need to hold your screen on/active while the melody plays. A lovely advent calendar app.
Works like an Advent calender but instead of opening doors, you obtain a musical treat. However the execution is buggy. First, something times out after a min and then the melody stops. Second, it easily gets jammed somehow, and all the indicators on the screen begin blink sort of randomly. The only method to recover is to power the phone off.
I think it's an interesting application but unfortunately it's not working... Tap the X'mas ball there shows 25 numbers but all of them are in grey color, no matter I tap which number will back to the X'mas ball page again and nothing happen. ============================= Dec.2nd updated: Now it's working and it's absolutely awesome!! Ps, hey, don't yell at me for the negative comment as there's nowhere in the description that the application starts on Dec.1st.
Bought 2 of these, one for each of our sons. This is excellent for tweens and teens that have aged out of traditional advent calendars yet still have something to begin next to their younger siblings. Some of the numbers were very hard to search since they blended in the image---that was almost a android game in itself! Nice dozens of gummy candies--some sour, some ropes, lots of various shapes other than bears. Candy was new too. Since we bought two it was interesting to note that each day was the same dozens of candy as the other box, although usually a various color or flavor.
My Granddaughter absolutely loved this advent calendar! She can't eat chocolate and this was the excellent alternative! She has loved every treat she has found hidden behind the doors. She can't wait for Christmas Eve to see what's behind that door! I will be purchasing this again next year.
This was an incredibly unique project for me to do with our daughters. We are an interfaith family and have a lot of combined traditions. Making these created lighting our family advent wreath even more meaningful this year. If you haven’t rolled beeswax candles before, please read the directions! They burn really well and do not drip much. You can sort of “smoosh” the bottom of the candles to create them fit different size candle holders. Really attractive candles!! So glad we found them!
I have an advent wreath candle holder that is very hard to search narrow enough candles for. This beeswax candle kit was the excellent solution. It had enough beeswax for a 2nd year with my narrow candles. The candles are simple to make, and everything required was included. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was.
Do you wish to hear the story of how the worlds heroes got started? How about just one hero? Welcome to Advent (Red Mage book 1), the Story of Drew Michalik. A person who has enlisted into the coast guard and is now working Cyber Security in a bunker in Washington DC. The story starts with someone saying "Begin" and the globe gets assimilated into the system. Xander Boyce has woven a system that is complex and yet easy to understand. (A) connects to (b, c, and d) and can make linked skills there of (ab, ac, ad). Skills can be slotted into a persons respective chart (unique to each individual, reminds me of Final Fantasy 10's grid system but custom tailored to the individual.) A person seems to have affinity towards certain types of Xatherite (yay for color coding). The story has a lot of names to hold track of, at least for myself.I recommend giving this a read honestly. The story is compelling, well thought out and the characters act within reason for people suddenly thrown into situations well beyond their control. I haven't felt anything has been "forced" to let plot to happen. If you're a fan of characters acting consistently with their personalities then you're going to like Advent (Red Mage book 1).Writing: 10/10Plot: 10/10Amount of research place into plumbing just for a single chapter of this story? 15/10Overall impression: A amazing read and somewhat thought provoking on how humans would react to being place into related situations. If I had to choose a globe to live in, this would definitely create my top 5 choices of locations to e additional 5 points is because I HAD TO figure out why he couldn't flush in one chapter and decided to look up how plumbing works myself
Couldn't place it down, literally took a dump truck hitting a power line for me to stop reading. The magic feels very materia based but quickly upgrades and mixes magic to turn easy items very powerful. The main hero doesn't instantly obtain along with people and isn't magically in charge, some characters even stick with him because he is powerful and can protect them. The few times he doesn't he beats himself up over what he can't control. Very human feeling and just shear stubbornness pushing him forward.
Nice to have a Christian Advent calendar. Only issue with this one is the design (very attractive ) has the 3 Kings........they only came on the stage AFTER the birth of Christ.Would love to have the company's artists make a stage with the travel to Bethlehem, and then ONLY on the latest window On the eve of Christmas, a picture of the crib. The crib with the Holy Kid does not appear in the Christmas Story until Christmas! An Avent calendar with either the kid Jesus or the Kings is absolutely MEANINGLESS and it removes all the explanations to our kids on the meaning of Advent and their excitement on opening a everyday window with a small suitable text.
First things first: 1.) There is no chocolate in this calendar. For some this is a drawback; I actively dislike Advent calendars that include chocolate as I feel they contribute to the increasing commercialization of Christmas. 2.) This particular calendar ends with a larger door that includes a Nativity scene. I consider this a plus, and test to search calendars that have this feature, which I consider the "big payoff" to the countdown. I've purchased several Bernadette Watts Advent Calendars the past few years and really have fun both the main illustration and the scenes inside each door. I search these reminiscent of the German calendars I used as a child. The scenes inside the doors are very easy but charming: a robin, an orange, a present, etc. I only have one issue, and for some this may not be an problem at all. The calendar is mounted on cardboard stock. This does create it more sturdy and easier for little hands to begin doors, but I prefer the ones on thinner paper. We hang the thinner ones in a window or stand in front of an electric light, allowing the tissue-paper illustrations to be lit like stained glass. If they could create their calendars on the more traditional thin stock, they would be excellent to me. Whether that's an problem for others depends on your private preference.
