Description: Waiting for your purchase is this charming CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN CALENDAR from AVON. It was issued in 1987 and was made in China. This one has never been used, just removed from the bag to photograph. The calendar is made of a nice Christmas green cloth. At top, it is attached to a wooden rod or dowel and has a reddish orange cord for hanging. On front we see a scene of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus seated in their house drinking tea, while a reindeer waits out front. A squirrel watches the festivities and tiny birds peck the snowy ground for seeds. Below this scene is a section of small pockets, numbered 1 through 24. Included with the calendar is a small stuffed cloth mouse. He has an orange body, 2 small beige felt hearts that represent hands, a red bow tie with white dots, and pink dots in his ears. You place the mouse in the day's pocket that matches the date. Begin with 1 and move the mouse each day until you get to 24, then it is Christmas Eve. This helps kids keep count and prevents their constant asking how many more days until Christmas. It is a cute idea and a great way to teach and interact with your child. The bag contains a small packet of silica gel, so you should keep this out of the reach of your child. The bag says the calendar may be cleaned with a damp cloth. The fabric content is 100% cotton. You might need to lightly press the calendar before hanging it. It has been rolled up in the bag since around 1987, so it is slightly wrinkled. Otherwise, it is in mint condition. This item is hard to find, especially in this condition. It has all its original parts, even the silica gel!
