We love stationary as much as the next person here at Mother & Baby, but even we are a little confused by W H Smith’s latest advent calendar.
2017 seems to be the year of experimental advent calendars, with playmobil calendars available for tots, and a whole host of cheese and prosecco advent calendars for parents. But this has to be the most unusual novelty advent calendar yet – 25 days of erasers.
For £6, your little one will be able to unwrap a rubber a day in the run up to Christmas day, where they will open the window containing TWO erasers.
Unfortunately, parents are a little confused, a couple taking to social media to ask isn’t this a lifetime of rubbers?
What do you think? Would you buy it? Let us know in the comments below!
