We just picked up the 7" set of 14 pieces, as well as the 10" set of animals and the lighted stable. We got the larger animals to go with the smaller set based on other reviews. We are glad we did, as the proportions seem more realistic. The pieces seem strong, so we expect we will have fewer one-winged angels and three-legged animals than we had in our family's well-worn porcelain sets growing up. The colors are vivid and the whole set is very pretty. We are quite pleased with this purchase and can highly recommend this set.
These figures were anything but "real life." They were very roughly designed and the painting was crude and not well done. I ended up giving the entire $180 "Real Life" set to the Idaho youth ranch to sell in their used merchandise story.
Extremely happy with this pretty set the face are so pretty, baby Jesus is a bit older than I had thought he would be not an infant's face but his face is still pretty. I love the complete set. Packaged very well, received in a few days and love the complete set.
