Though we’re still several months away before the start of the holiday season, some online retailers are now making room for LEGO’s seasonal Advent Calendars. LEGO initially mentioned them earlier this year at the floor show of the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and this time around, thanks to Swiss online LEGO retailer Mein Spielzeug, we now have our first look at some of these annual sets, particularly starting with the LEGO City Advent Calendar 2020 (60268). Read on for a rough translation of its product description including some set pictures.

This latest LEGO City offering seems to be inspired by the new LEGO City Adventures TV series, which include characters such as Daisy Kaboom, Duke DeTain, and Chief Wheeler among others. Mein Spielzeug also mentions a release date of September 1 for the LEGO City Advent Calendar 2020 (60268), so we can expect this to be somehow listed at LEGO Shop@Home sometime soon.
