The cute set helped to share the Christmas story to my 3-year-old granddaughter. I told just once, but she remembered the whole story and told me using these characters. I'll try to make the story movie using this set before next Christmas!
We have a nativity set that we display at advent, and the kids love it. I bought this one so that it could be theirs: to set up, rearrange, and play with as they wished. my kids LOVED doing this. They liked that baby Jesus could be lifted up separately from the manger (his face does look a little old). I often found them playing out the Christmas story.
we bought a couple more sets to give to my nieces/nephew (one of whom is my god daughter) after hearing that they didnt have a nativity set in their home, and for friends who loved playing with the set.
Super nice set for a great way to teach the story of the birth of Christ!
Well made, sturdy, very nice colors, and perfect size for little hands, Did I mention what a good deal this is?? Well, you couldn't ask for a better price! So glad I bought this for my 3 1/2 year old grand-daughter and the look on her face Christmas morning was priceless.
I bought this nativity set for its 'useablity' - it is touchable. We used it as part of our Christmas morning ritual with each person taking a piece and telling what part it played in the story of Christ's birth (with drama, of course). It was great fun!
