"I am so disappointed with this calendar. I bought 2 and they looked lovely. However, when we tried to hang the ornaments, the strings broke off several, and those that didn't break wouldn't hang on the beads, they just fell off. I am going to have to completely rework this using Velcro."
"I never go online to rate products but I have to share my disappointment with this one. It's adorable in theory but so poorly made. The balls that the ornaments are supposed to hang from are coming off already and it's only 12/9. Also, the ornaments won't actually hang from them. You have to hope the felt materials will stick together instead of the strings on the ornaments hanging onto the balls on the tree. There are lots of cute Christmas Countdown options out there. Skip this one!"

"I got this years ago. It doesn't hang well. I use tape to lay it flat against the door because there's a flimsy hard cardboard bracket aligning the top where the ribbon is attached that buckles. The ornaments don't attach to the balls at all. I use masking tape so they stick. The numbered pockets are roomy so I can insert surprise notes of activities we'll do that day. Despite its flaws we've used it for years & my kids love it. My sister's has no flaws at all. Even her ornaments attach."
