One of the best selling pop-up advent calendars from last year… The story is the traditional advent story, which certainly counts in it’s favor. The pop-up part works well, for people who are handy with their hands. A significant minority of users report that it did NOT work for them, though. 

The story-book part of it does get unanimous positive reviews – one grandson going so far as to take it to his bed-ridden grandpapa – to be read from it.
