I decided to purchase this advent calendar because it is a nice size and made of good -- instead of cardboard -- so it will last longer. Kaisercraft has good instructions for assembly and decoration online. Putting the frame together takes quite a bit of time, but it is all worth it in the end. You can do so much with it and I am extremely happy with my purchase.
My daughter has been wanting one of these for a long time, this year is the year for her to start one for her daughter. This is going to be great for putting little pieces of candy or a small toy into, even notes from santa......
