We have never had a nativity set of our own so I thought it was about time. I wanted one that was kid friendly, but not hideous and not too kid-ish. After scouring the internet, I found the perfect set for us! This wooden nativity set is simple, modern and super durable. Oh, and it's totally affordable! We love it. Elliott loves getting down under the tree and reciting the story "Once upon a time..there was Mary. And they went to the city..." Also, he can build his own "barn". Doesn't get much better than that! And yes, we have some presents under the tree. These are our "tester" gifts. I wrapped a few of Elliott's gifts that if he did get into them, he wouldn't be able to tell what they were and wouldn't be able to open the boxes. So far, it's working great! He hasn't touched them. Besides putting them under the tree himself, like a "big boy".
