Top Ten Days of the 60235 Lego City Advent Calendar (2019)

This year's lego city calendar has been quite disappointing honestly in my opinion when compared to other lego city calendars this decade. At least the first half. Second half was better. My main problems with this one is that a lot of builds were just..., underwhelming. It still had its great points though so with that being said here's a list of the best days of it.
The Top Ten
1 Day 13: Granny With Book

This calendar was disappointing in terms of builds but legendary in terms of minifigures. This example is definitely the most shining gift that we've received in this otherwise disappointing calendar. The parts are excellent to begin with! The hairpiece, the face, the cardigan, and the book piece - this is just legendary! Okay, the trousers aren't particularly unique, but who cares when literally everything else is great? Even the book page part is detailed, with text saying "Once upon a time." This gift was just legendary, especially compared to everything else in this calendar.

2 Day 10: Woman With Camera

This is another minifigure with amazing pieces and great originality. Normally, getting a civilian isn't very interesting in my opinion, but this is an exception considering the pieces. It's a new scarf piece, and the hat is incredibly rare too. I know it appeared in last year's calendar, but this was my first one. The jacket is nice too. The camera and face aren't particularly interesting, but they fit quite well. So yes, another minifigure in the top two.

3 Day 20: Girl With Snowboard

Even the children's minifigures were greeted with originality. First off, a snowboard piece or skis are always welcome. They offer loads of playability and look great. While the yellow snowboard from the 2017 calendar is better than this year's green one, it's still a good one. The minifigure herself has an incredibly unique snow cap with a blue color, and it actually looks "wintry." However, the minifigure herself may resemble the girl figure from the 2015, 2016, and 2018 calendars too much.

4 Day 15: Snowmobile

Snowmobiles rarely disappoint, and this is no exception. This is probably the best build in the calendar. The orange and white color scheme is nice, and the overall design isn't questionable. I appreciate the originality as well, with the new snow chains. This is an example of a snowmobile done incredibly well.

5 Day 3: Eskimo With Broom

Another minifigure makes it to the top five. Man, four out of the five items on this list are minifigures. This one is particularly interesting. In the first half of this calendar, many builds were just uninteresting. This was the only thing in the calendar that made me happy. Quite ironically, this is a happy minifigure as well. It has two faces: a laughing one and a happy one, both of which are completely new to me. Its clothes are unique too. It has a lot of blue, and the broom is unique. Whether this minifigure is an Eskimo or not is up to you, but I think it looks like one, and I mean that in a positive way.

6 Day 17: Man With Fire-Extinguisher

This minifigure isn't a disappointment either. This is the first time we get a fire extinguisher in the right colors, red and black. Previously, all we got were boring yellow ones. The man himself is quite good as well. The gray hairpiece is nothing I've seen before, and the face with the somewhat "evil" look and gray beard is unique. The cardigan appeared in last year's calendar as well, but it's still fairly rare.

7 Day 16: Furnace

Another incredibly unique build that we haven't seen before in a Lego City calendar. I like the black and white tiles that serve as a floor, and I love how you get both an oven and a stove. Along with these, you get a frying pan and a pizza.

Okay, the pizza could have been way more detailed, I'll give it that. It also looks slightly unfinished, honestly. It feels like something should be there above the stove. Eh, it's great for what it is.

8 Day 7: Boy With Cookie

And would you look at that, all of the minifigures make it to the top ten of this list (excluding Santa, but you know why if you're a Lego City fan). As I said, the minifigure selection was legendary in this calendar. This one is weaker than the others mainly because it's more generic. The shirt, trousers, cookie, and cap piece aren't very unique. However, it's saved by looking good nevertheless. The face is incredibly unique, and the hat comes with a propeller, for goodness' sake! This is definitely a great build!

9 Day 21: Telescope

This is the most unique build we've had in an Advent calendar, probably. I mean, a telescope! Ironically enough, I got an actual telescope for Christmas this year. Anyway, this build is well-proportioned. It's not too small. The minifigs can actually look through it, and the telescope can be adjusted. It's a great build. My only complaint is that it looks a bit plain.

10 Day 12: Rocking Chair and Lamp

You know, I'm kind of starting to disagree with my point that this calendar was mediocre, because I seem to like all the items in the top ten a lot. Well, there are still half of the items I haven't talked about yet, but anyways, this is a pretty nice build.

The lamp, to start off with, looks really nice and unique, and I appreciate the details. The rocking chair isn't very detailed, but it goes excellently with the granny from Day 13. Overall, good build.
