One2Believe Nativity Set
Our family was thrilled to receive the One2Believe Tales of Glory Nativity Set in the mail. One2Believe is a Christian toy company whose vision is to provide toys that help parents bring their children up in the Lord. They desire to see our children enter into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
This 18 piece set is attractively and carefully packaged. The nativity itself is colorful. It includes a stable with star attached, Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus, manger, palm tree, 2 angels, a donkey, 2 sheep, 2 shepherds, 3 wise men, a camel, and a hay bale. The nativity playset is well-made, from PVC, and designed for children ages 3 and up. It includes a small booklet that tells about Christ's birth.
My children can't keep their hands off of the Tales of Glory Nativity set. I keep reminding my older girls that it is meant to be played with. They want it perfectly arranged on the coffee table at all times, but the younger children are eager to hold the pieces, rearrange them, and pretend with them.
Although it is a toy, it is also attractive to display. We have found it to be well-made. It has survived aggressive play and continual use in the weeks that we have owned it. Our 6 older children (ages 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, and 13) have all enjoyed it, but the 2 year-old and 4 year-old have tested its quality daily.
We have had family here this week, including cousins ranging in age from 2 to 11 years old. The other children also enjoyed looking at, touching, and playing with the Tales Of Glory nativity set.
The only negative thing about the Tales of Glory Nativity play set is that we continually have to track down missing pieces, which have wandered away with the help of our preschoolers. Some of the pieces have even flown across the room, repeatedly. But, somehow ... I think that isn't an issue with the nativity set itself, but the preschoolers instead.
One2Believe has many other Bible play sets, Bible action figures, and dolls, but the nativity set is my favorite. It is the largest play set they currently sell, and it is available for $24.99 at the One2Believe website. We have another children's nativity set that is similarly priced, but we really prefer the Tales of Glory Nativity Set. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift to any child, or family with children.
