There's never been a better time to buy a Lego advent calendar than right now. Or, well, maybe if you're the planning type, you could argue that it would have been wise to buy one months ago, before the rest of us realized that we need to get our acts together and order one before December 1, which is frighteningly close. But anyway, at this very moment, there are still plenty of these exciting Lego-themed countdowns to Christmas on shelves, and they're at the lowest prices they've been all year.

We hope you're reading this with your shopping trigger fingers poised because advent calendars do have the annoying tendency to sell out quickly, especially when there's a rare discount on the highly coveted gifts. Amazon, Walmart, and Target all have sales on their calendars as of this writing, but they're also available at full price from stores like Nordstrom, shopDisney, and Kohl's. Still, if you happen to miss out on the several Lego options below, take a peek at some of these other great 2021 advent calendar options.

That said, Lego advent calendars are some of the best. We just love the way each of the 24 surprise boxes reveals an element of the entire scene—be it a Star Wars Christmas, a snowy Lego City, or a house party among Lego Friends, the Avengers, or Harry Potter and his classmates. Some of the daily gifts are mini-figures, while others are bricks that kids will enjoy assembling into vehicles, structures, and, yeah, even alien weapons. There are also no years on the Lego advent calendar boxes, so if you want to pick up, say, a Lego Harry Potter calendar from 2019, your kids won't be the wiser.

Below are the best Lego advent calendars of 2021 (and a couple from earlier years), at the best prices we could find while supplies last. (We featured multiple options in case one site sells out before the others.)
