Earlier this month, we have learned that LEGO is in an early gift-giving spirit with the announcement of its next promotional available from October 1 to 25. The LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar 40222 is now available for FREE with purchases of $99 and more at any LEGO Brand Store and shop.LEGO.com until supplies last. Unlike the rest of this year’s Advent Calendars that are focused on Star Wars, City, and Friends themes, the Holiday Countdown Calendar focuses on more Christmas themed miniature builds and comes at a lower price point of $19.99. However, the 40222 is described as a 250-piece ‘build-and-rebuild’ set which means that unlike the Advent Calendars, you may probably not be able to assemble all the 24 suggested builds simultaneously.
Adorably cute and tiny as they are, LEGO’s database was recently updated to include several high-resolution images of the 40222 that gives us a closer look at some of its 24 suggested builds. Check out these images right after the Holiday Countdown Calendar’s official description.

Countdown to Christmas with building fun every day!

Also features a resealable box to store all the LEGO® pieces and a brick separator.
- Features 24 models, each with a winter or Christmas theme.
- Also includes a resealable box, brick separator and extensive building instructions for all 24 models.
- This item offers an age-appropriate play experience for ages 7 and over.
- Makes a great festive gift for LEGO® fans.
As of this writing, the LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar still appears in the My Bag section of shop.LEGO.com once your purchase reaches $99. It doesn’t appear to be listed for purchase though, since it doesn’t show up using the site’s search function. However, its retail value appears once you click on it through My Bag.
Nevertheless, it is still a promotional that is expected to run out quickly as we enter the holiday seasons, so better get a move on if you wish to have this one-of-a-kind seasonal set.
