Recently I posted about a German nativity set… the only issue with it is it’s so delicate that it’s not exactly kid-friendly–it’s really meant to site on a mantle, not to be played with. This set, also from, Germany is perfect for little ones.
The carving and hand-painted details are so lovely, but the pieces are nice and sturdy. I love how Mary and Joseph have their hands folded in prayer.
My in-laws have a fun tradition of not putting the baby into the manger until Christmas morning. Makes things very exciting for little ones! Available anywhere in the world from Hocusadabra.
