Description

Gather around the Christmas tree alongside twenty-four fanciful birds with this interactive pop-up Advent calendar from The Met. Each day of Advent, find and open the numbered door. Remove the bird inside and hang it on the pop-up tree by slipping the folded tab over a branch. On Christmas Day, top off the birds' nested Christmas tree with a golden star.

The calendar is based on the watercolor Avian Holiday (1953) by Adolf Dehn (American, 1895–1968). Known for his humorous satires and social commentaries on modern life, Dehn, whose work is in The Met collection, concentrated as a young artist on printmaking before focusing on watercolors in 1937.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avian Advent calendar The Advent calendar was introduced to us by my Dutch parents while living in Indonesia, ?1938? After our post WWII arrival in Holland in ?1945?, my grandparents surprised us with our first Advent calendar, (since the war). I kept this lovely tradition alive, passing it on to my children who intern passed it on to their children. I fell in love with the Avian advent calendar features and purchased it for my great-grand children. There is nothing more thrilling for a child during the Advent season as getting up in the morning, running downstairs to anxiously open the designated "window'', without being allowed to "peek" under the next day's window.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Advent Calendar leaves a bit to be desired I love advent calendars, and use them every year. This one seemed lovely on the website, and my family loves birds, so I tried this one out. It unfolds to a quite large footprint, with the tree being a nice height. The birds seemed cheaply made, and there was not a lot of variety. Red, Yellow and Blue, with a small amount of size variation seemed a bit lackluster. Being used to much higher quality calendars, I would not recommend this one. The two stars are for the originality; I have never seen such a calendar before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not quite live up to expectations The stand of the calendar and the tree itself are very well done, I was exited to see the birds that would go on to this beautiful tree. That is where the disappointment came in, the birds are too vague, barely discernible, stylized. I was looking forward to talking with my grandson about the different birds, looking them up to read about them etc. I really liked the idea, the execution was not quite what I had expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable and Different Have have bought several Advent calendars for my daughter and her first grade class. They love the pop-up Advent calendar this year. I have also bought the holiday chain pkgs for their projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing Tree The pop-up tree is missing, what a disappointment to my kids. Be cautioned, you might get the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great pop up ; disappointing birds I'm always trying to encourage young urban citizens to become more aware of nature. The tree pop up is clever and fabulous but the blobs called birds are ever so disappointing. I would encourage the artist to connect with the Audobon Society for some real and fascinating education.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different type of Advent calendar My grandchildren and their parents are enjoying this Advent calendar.  My daughter-in-law is a wildlife biologist and is a bird specialist, so she is happy to have this fun and instructional tool for the boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique advent calendar. A wonderful Advent calendar for those who may want something other than a religious or Santa-related way to count down December. An usual, easy to set-up 3-D centerpiece, although it requires a lot of flat space, and inexpensive for the quality. Easy for elderly relatives and little kids alike to put the birds on the tree. Recommended highly.
