We added this set and the others in the series to the Activity Bags for our young members at church. We also added an Arch storybook to each bag - each book matched the story that the Glory Play Set represented. The little ones seem to enjoy playing quietly with these sets during services, and the sets help teach them stories from the Bible.
We read the Christmas story every year to our kids before tearing into the gifts. We have a nativity set that we set out just for the little ones. Ours is ceramic and has been glued together numerous times over the years. So when it was time to buy one for our grandson, we chose this one. it is not ceramic. He absolutely loves it.
