Rated 2 out of 5 by Grammy from Disappointing The characters have pictures on just one side. What good is a three dimensional toy that is only printed on one side? Mary and Joseph are both facing the same direction, so you can't put them on either side of the baby. This is not usual for a M&D toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nana from Outstanding! I bought this for my two grandchildren ages 5 and 11. It is easy to set up and is sturdy. They love to play with it, and it is great for teaching the story of Christ's birth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lholz58 from Needs bases, please! This set is just darling, sturdy and very appropriate for kid play. However, it desperately needs bases for all the figures. They constantly fall over, which is very frustrating. I hope to make some, but why don't they just come on the set? It would be perfect then.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Storm from The Only Thing Stable Was The Stable When my wife and I first saw your Wooden Christmas Nativity Set we were both very excited because all the other Nativity sets the same size were way too delicate for our three grandchildren to set-up and play with. Just looking at all of the figures in the box, we were very impressed with the sturdy wood material used, and the vivid colors used on the stable, people and animals. It is definitely a very nice looking set in the box. The first thing I wanted to do when we got home after buying it was to set it up, which turned out to be easier said than done. I have pretty steady hands, even after 69 years of use, but getting all of the figures in the position I believed they should be in was very, very difficult. As a previous customer had said in their review, the figures needed an wider base in all directions. With such a high center of gravity on the taller figures it was nearly impossible to avoid tipping them over and causing a domino effect among the rest of the grouping. I did finally get the job done, but it should not have been a job.; It should have been fun, which I am sure it would not have been for my grandchildren. My four-year-old son does have a very steady hand, which he has shown me many time over the past 2 years, using blocks of all shapes and sizes. Anyway, after experiencing the frustration I had making all the figures stand-up as they should, I realized this Nativity set was not as perfect as I had first thought, and hoped. As a result, I returned the set to the store I had purchased it at, and have not yet found a replacement, which is rather disappointing this Christmas. Perhaps if the Nativity set had been child-tested, the need for effective bases would have been discovered and remedied before this set was sent out. Sincerely. Rawland Storm P.S. I just noticed the area for the inclusion of a video. Unfortunately, I just noticed it. Just imagine all of the pieces, except one, being up, and then all knocked down by the last one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amy from Would be great with a redesign! Cute idea, limited display abilities. This is a nice set. The manger set up is thin and or arrived scratched. We have difficulty making the roof piece fit. The figurines are realistic. My biggest complaint is that you cannot actually put it under the tree because the figurines will fall over if you try to put them on your tree skirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharon from Easy sharing of story of Christmas First time I put this together with my 3 year old granddaughter but then she could use it herself. The pieces enabled to give her a simple version of the story of the birth of Jesus so completely met my goals. It is very easy to store in the box and will see many years of use. Thanks so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann from Beautiful and sturdy Nativity! Lovely, sturdy Nativity. We've had lots of fun playing with it in many ways...but we've also used it to recreate and tell the Christmas story. Best looking Nativity I've found.
