Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam1975 Great craft project to do with kids
My son loved painting this and getting it ready for Santa to fill for Christmas. You need two coats of paint if using lighter colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grafter Value for money
I had a lovely afternoon painting this with acrylics and it looks fantastic. Amazing value, to think it will last year after year. Will be buying more to paint as presents!

wow, when I saw this I had to have it, and will be my project for next year, for my Grandson Tyler who loves all things red and truck...and this will be red, seems sturdy enough, so hope it will last him a few years.

Lovely product, very cute! But very tricky to paint! Took a lot of time and patience!

Rated 4 out of 5 by diynanny perfect diy advent calendar for christmas
very simple item which was easy to paint and decorate to your taste. Children were wowed by the glitter I used and the top and back of the truck were ideal spaces for writing a Christmas wish and the name of the child. The only thing I would have liked to be different is the size of the little cupboards as, although they are ample for individual sweets or chocolates, small packets would not fit or little gifts. Overall, it was good value for money and can look expensive if decorated well. Will also last for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sophsiebea Different but doors open to easily
Love this. So lovely to be able to make something so different so personal... Only small issue I have is when you pick it up some of the doors open, allowing presents to be seen and fall out...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hantsmum Disappointed
Was really looking forward to creating something special with family, unfortunately this was not it.
Firstly the wood is very dark, which needs at least 2 coats of (acrylic) paint, something little ones dont understand.
Some of the doors are really stiff to open, some wont stay shut.
The actual compartments are internally tiny, we just got the smallest of the choc coins in with the door shut. Unfortunately the lovely wrapped santas and snowmen we got, didnt fit in.
Stressful and disappointing activity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kate29 looks fab when finished
I painted this in acrylic paint, which worked well. One point I will make is that since I painted the doors, they do stick a bit and I had to prise a few open

Rated 2 out of 5 by eizzard broken had to return
bought this for my son, unfortunately when he took the wrapping off a couple of the doors were broken. on returning it to store I found over half the ones on display were broken, so opted for a different style of calendar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Littlelostsmurf Inexpensively create a family heirloom
My first impression when seeing the advent truck in person was that this product was smaller than expected and I was unsure whether It would have enough space to be used for all three of my boys to share. I decided to buy it anyway and felt I'd got a bargain. On unwrapping a couple of the little door knobs fell off on first opening the doors and a couple of the doors were misaligned and sticking shut but I never addressed this with the store as I still feel that despite slight imperfections the product is fantastic value for money. My family's advent truck is now all decorated and we are over the moon with it. I'm so glad I went through with the purchase and kept the item despite its minor quirks as we now have a family treasure to pass on down the generations.
