HARIBO Advent Calendar 2017 Review - Take a Peek at What's Inside

*This post features a press sample and affiliate links

Chocolate advent calendars aren't for everyone and I'm delighted to feature a fantastic alternative today that won't break the bank. The HARIBO Advent Calendar is currently available for just £7 via Amazon. The calendar is larger than the advent calendars we're used to and features 24 doors with a sweet treat behind each door. All of the treats are individually wrapped and many are Christmas themed. I love the Christmas scene featured on the front of this calendar and it certainly looks nice and inviting. 

HARIBO Advent Calendar 2017 Review - Take a Peek Inside

There's a good mix of treats inside and as we opened each door we enjoyed not knowing what was going to be behind each door - a range of treats rather than the same chocolate every day definitely adds to the countdown excitement! Here's a look at exactly what's inside (I won't ruin it and tell you which door they're all behind):  

We love Haribo and I loved that some of the treats were Christmas themed whether this be a mini bag of Winter Wonderland themed sweets or a large reindeer shaped jelly. 

HARIBO Advent Calendar 2017 Review - Take a Peek Inside

There was even a Christmas Tree behind one door (I've taken it out of it's wrapper for this photo).

The Christmas themed treats were mixed with regular favourites including with my personal favourite - Maoam bars! 

As my three were digging into this calendar I couldn't help but think it would be perfect for school teachers to use in their classrooms. Our school normally use chocolate calendars but I think this Haribo calendar is a lot less messy AND the children can keep the wrapped bag of sweets in their drawer until home time. Of course, these calendars aren't just for kids, Grown-ups will love them too and I must admit Steve and I did sneak a couple of doors open when the kids weren't looking. A daily dose of HARIBO in December will definitely keep me happy! 

HARIBO Advent Calendar 2017 Review - Take a Peek Inside

If you or your kids love HARIBO, this calendar won't disappoint and thanks to it's size and the range of treats included, I think it offers very good value for money.

Remember Christmas from your childhood & you'll realise it's not all about the presents

At this time of year, it is all too easy to get sucked into consumerism. Endless toy adverts, pressure from Social Media to have the 'Perfect Christmas' and big-ticket items often costing the same as a small car can all lead to a lot of pressure on us to spend more than we can afford. I am certainly guilty of that. I've been thinking about my own childhood though and apart from the year I was surprised with a bike, it's not the big gifts I remember at all. My memories are filled with lots of special family times and today I'm going to remember these and come back to them when I feel a pang of guilt for not adding another 'must-have' gift to the kids' present pile this year.

My Favourite Christmas Memories

1 - Putting the Christmas Tree up

This was always a family event and we'd usually put our tree up on the first Sunday in December. We pretty much had the same tree and decorations for most of my childhood and I loved seeing the same decorations year after year.

2 - Lying in bed on Christmas Eve

Is there anything more exciting than lying in bed on Christmas Eve and trying to get to sleep so Santa Claus can visit?

3 - A Fancy dinner with crackers and a decorated table

My mam would always decorate and set our table on Christmas Eve and it always looked so beautiful! There was definitely something special about sitting down to dinner fancy tableware, proper napkins and crackers. Sharing cheesy jokes around the table is just the best.

4 - Going to see Fenwick's Window in the dark

This is a big thing in the North East and when you are taken into Newcastle to see Fenwick's Window, you know that Christmas is on it's way. In the 80s and 90s we'd always visit on a Thursday night (late night shopping back in the day) after school. We'd park in Civic Centre, fight the crowds to press our nose up against the window and check out the theme for this year, take a ride on the Helter Skelter that was always along the street and then head to McDonalds on Northumberland Street which was a real treat for us.

5 - Big family get-togethers

Christmas always meant big family get-togethers. I loved our big parties on Boxing Day at my mam's aunt's house. We'd all sit around the table for a buffet, I'd get to play with my cousins and we'd play a song or two on the piano.

6 - Chocolate for breakfast

Christmas Day is the only day of the year that I'd be allowed such an indulgence and sample a couple of chocolate coins from my stocking before breakfast. What a treat!

7 - Body shop gift sets

When I was around 10/11 I was obsessed with Body Shop gift sets and products. I remember one year being so excited at the fact that I received not one but two bottles of Dewberry bubble bath. Sometimes the most inexpensive presents are the best.

8 - Advent Calendars

It's September and my children have already started asking about advent calendars. I love this part of Christmas - both enjoying a chocolate every day AND sharing with your friends at school the picture behind the door.

9 - Christmas lights

Another part of Christmas I distinctly remember is being taken out for a drive in the evening and visiting a few streets that went all out with Christmas lights. As a child I had never seen anything like it. Magical!

10 - Shopping for gifts

There were 5 of us in my friendship group at school and we all used to spend a couple of £ on special gifts for each other. This might have just been a door plaque, bubble bath or friendship bracelet but buying and receiving these gifts was always super special.

My own Christmas memories aren't the times I received an over-priced toy or the latest electronic device and I bet yours aren't either. This is something I'm going to keep at the front of my mind over the next few months as I start my Christmas shopping.

9 Fairytale Christmas Markets to Visit in Europe 2017

I love a good Christmas Market and it's my dream to visit a proper Christmas Market in Europe. It's my birthday in December and I keep hinting to Steve to take me to Belin but so far it has fallen on deaf ears!

Today I've put together a list of some of the best Christmas Markets in Europe. Let me know if you've visited any or there are any others you'd recommend.

Stuttgart, Ludwingsburg and Esslingen Christmas Markets - Germany

Credit - Exraordinay Chaos
As Extraordinary Chaos points out in this post, Stuttgart in Germany is only just over 1 hour away and with flights from Heathrow available from just £24.99, it's not an expensive place to travel to either.  There are three markets to visit in the vicinity ranging from the main Stuttgart market with it's street food and ice rink to Ludwigsburg with it's twinkling lights and gingerbread and the picture perfect Esslingen Medieval Market with street performers, craft stalls and magical candlelit evenings.

  • Stutttgart Market runs from 29 November - 23 December 2017 : Website
  • Ludwigsburg Market runs from 23 November - 22 December 2017 : Website
  • Esslingen Medieval Market runs from 28 November - 22 December 2017 : Website

Landshut's Christmas Market, Bavaria - Germany

Credit | A Bavarian Sojourn
Landshut's Christmas Market is small but perfectly formed and A Bavarian Sojourn has captured it perfectly in this post. There's plenty of festive food available as well as warm spiced wine, a children's funfair and gifts to buy. Temperatures can get chilly so wrap up warmly for this one.
  • Landshut's Christmas Market runs from 30 November - 23 December 2017 : Website

Bologna Christmas Market, Italy

Credit | Space in Your Case
I will be honest when I say that visiting Italy in December is just never an option that has crossed my mind but after reading this post by Penny from Space In Your Case, I have well and truly changed my mind. Bologna looks SO festive! From fairy lights, to Christmas trees and beautiful decorations everywhere you look, Bologna is home to some of the best hot chocolate that money can buy, fabulous street food and gifts and you'll definitely receive a warm welcome.  

  • Bologna Christmas Markets take place throughout December : Website

Berlin, Leipzig, Munich and Salzberg Christmas Markets, Germany & Austria

Credit | The Family Adventure Project
The Family Adventure Project visited four cities in their quest to experience an authentic Christmas Market and documented their journey here (well worth a read).  First stop was Berlin which they describe as the Hollywood of Christmas Markets. There are actually over 60 Christmas Markets in Berlin offering everything from tobogganing and ice skating to chocolate covered pretzels, fire pits and fairground rides.

Next up is Leipzig, one of the most historic markets in Germany. With over 250 stalls there is a fairytale forest where the trees talk, elaborate wooden stalls, a Ferris wheel and handmade gifts, it's clear to see why this market is a popular choice.

Munich Christmas Markets are super popular so expect them to be crowded. From alpine carol singers to nativity accessories for sale, gingerbread stalls and hand blown glass decorations, there is so much to see and do.

Salzburg Christmas Market is picture perfect with simple wooden huts and open courtyards. Treat yourself to a Schnitzel or Strudel and take in the atmosphere as you admire the hand crafted goods for sale. 
  • Berlin Christmas Markets run across various dates : Website
  • Leipzig Christmas Market runs from 28 November - 23 December 2017 : Website
  • Munich Christmas Markets run from 27 November - 24 December 2017 : Website
  • Salzburg Christmas Marker runs from 23 November : Website

18 Awesome toys from the 80s and 90s that you can still buy today

*This post contains affiliate links
I'd love to hear what your favourite toys were as you were growing up. For me, it had to be my fashion wheel and Barbie caravan. I would spend hours playing with them! Today I'm taking you on a trip down memory lane and remembering some of the best toys from the 80s and 90s that are still available today. I would LOVE to play Atmosphere with my own children and think Heidi would love a Cupcake Surprise Doll. Let me know if you have any favourites from the list.

1 - Tamagotchi buy here

I remember forcing my parents to feed and water my digital pal when I was at school! Not sure I want my three to do the same.......

2 - Super Soaker - buy here

A Super Soaker was the ultimate outdoor toy in our area and our whole street would often head outside and join in with a massive water fight whenever someone decided to wash their car.

3 - Atmosphere - buy here

Atmosphere was the game of choice for us girls when we were around aged 10. We would go over to our friend's house, dim the lights and pop in a video. Yes - I'm sure it was a video back in the 90s.

4 - Fashion Wheel - buy here

Fashion Wheel was one of my favourites. I'd spend hours in my bedroom creating new designs and imagining a career travelling the world as a designer (that dream totally worked out).

5 - Thundercats figures - buy here

Steve loved Thundercats when he was younger, in fact he still has a couple of the figures today.

6 - Glo Worm - buy here

I distinctly remember from my childhood if there was ever a new baby for us to visit, they'd always have a glo worm toy!

7 - Tracey Island - buy here

My little bro was lucky enough to receive his own Tracey Island for Christmas and we'd spend hours playing together. Thunderbird 2 was totally my favourite!

8 - My Little Pony - buy here

I didn't own any My Little Pony's but one of my friends did - I remember she had stables for them and everything. It was always our toy of choice whenever I visited on a play date.

9 - Buzz Lightyear - buy here

It is probably a little past my time but I still remember the huge chaos when everyone needed a Buzz Lightyear for Christmas but they were sold out everywhere.....

10 - Barbie Caravan - buy here

I LOVED my Barbie Caravan and it was probably my most played with toy. We went on many adventures together and I loved that it had it's own detachable car.

11 - Spirograph - buy here

Looking back now, I think a Spirograph is a pretty boring toy but really enjoyed creating lots of crazy patterns, I think it was therapeutic!

12 - Mr Pop - buy here

Mr Pop was one of our favourite childhood games. The anticipation waiting for the face to pop was almost too much at times! I think I'm going to buy this for my own children this year.

13 - Mr Frosty - buy here

I yearned for a Mr Frosty when I was a child but it was always a big fat no. Every single Christmas morning I'd hope that this would be the year and it never was. As a grown up myself now, I can totally see where my parents were coming from. We've tried Mr Frosty and although the kids loved it, I thought it was pretty crap!

14 - Cupcake Surprise Doll - buy here

I adored my Cupcake Surprise doll and both myself and my cousin had one. They looked like a cupcake but would open out into a doll. They each had their own scent too - mine was strawberry.

15 - Pogs - buy here

The pog craze well and truly swept our middle school by storm and every child would own hundreds of them. Break times were spent swapping and playing and I actually can't believe they are still around now.

16 - Stretch Armstrong - buy here

I remember walking past Stretch Armstrong toys in the toy shop and always thinking they looked like so much fun. I never got to play with one though. Sob!

17 - Screwball Scramble - buy here

My next door neighbour had Screwball Scramble and every time I went over I'd insist we play - I was obsessed! I think my three would enjoy this now too.

18 - Mouse Trap - buy here

My grandma had a retro version of Mouse Trap and I always remember playing it when we spent the night. Happy days!

If you enjoyed this post please follow Mrs Mulled Wine on Facebook here, Instagram here and Twitter here. Thank you!

Let me know if you'll be taking a trip down memory lane and buying any of these retro toys this Christmas or if there's a toy from your childhood that hasn't made my list.
