I was so excited the other day to get a big box on my front door and in this box was a beautiful nativity set just right for children to play and learn with. My kids tore through the box and started playing with it right away. I was going to put it back in the box and save it for Christmas, but then I had a revelation! They can play with it all year round and then I can gather the pieces up at Christmas time and put it on the coffee table. Then maybe those little hands will stay away from my stained glass nativity set! So now it sits out for them to play with. They even incorporated it with their Little People play sets.
The set contains a very small storybook and 17 figurines. The pieces are VERY sturdy soft PVC. There is a star on the manger and I really thought it would just pop off, so I pulled and pulled and there it stayed! It's everything you need to share the Nativity story with your children. However I really wished it had a bit bigger storybook to go with it or some sort of mini curriculum for a school project, especially if you are to give this as a gift to an un-saved friend. It would be nice to have a little more meat in the storybook.
This set is recommended for children at least 3 years old, because there are some small parts. Now according to the description on the One2Believe web site, the nativity is made from PVC, which could be a danger to children who put things in their mouths. One 2 Believe has many toys available and the nativity is only $24.95 so you'll want to be sure to check it as well as all their other toys all out at One 2 Believe In .
