Nice addition to my Christmas decorations
Been shopping for a Nativity set for outdoors for a LONG time. Ordered this one last year, but it was out of stock. So glad to see it again. I would have loved to get the donkey, ox and camel that was in last years set, but they were not available. I am happy with the set. I had to change location once to get a little more protection from the wind. I did spray them with polyurethane for protection from the weather and painted a few details on some faces where there were none. I love seeing them when I pull in my driveway and my grandchildren were thrilled to see that "Grandma had a Baby Jesus". I just wish retailers would try a little harder to carry merchandise made in the USA. I would gladly have paid more for American made products.

I love the look of this nativity - very classy.
Very nice nativity, however, I've had several issues with getting it to stand on it's own. I purchased 3 ft. fence stakes to support them, and that seems to have helped. I also have sprayed them with clear varnish to give them extra protection from the weather. I've had one king break where they attach and I'm missing the angel torso. I'm calling customer service to see what we can do about it. Other then those issues, I love it, and hope to use it for years to come. I have been so unhappy with the choices in the stores for a yard nativity, so this one is perfect.

They look Great BUT
These items are made well, look good and would be a great display for the Christmas time...................................BUT with the windy area I live in, I cannot use them, there is no way to secure them that the winds cannot knock them over, so to prevent damage, I sit them up inside my house in area of my Christmas Tree......................

affordable outdoor nativity
I really wanted an outdoor nativity set and so many were so expensive and you only get a few characters. This one you get quite a few and the all look great I am very pleased. I wish they had a camel.

Could it be better...sure but it would cost a lot more.
The set is made of very light weight metal--arrived with dimples on several of the characters, likey from shipping. No matter, you won't be able to see it from the street. Durability of the paint is in question--we will see how it looks after one season. The stakes that secure the characters to the ground are nothing more than 3-4" inch long thin metal rods. Seeing how I have a north facing yard, there is no way these will stay in place against the winter winds. So plan for supplemental anchoring if you are in my boat (this was expected). Overall, this is the most durable/affordable/complete nativity scene I could find for the price. Also keep in mind, this set was drop shipped from the Oriental Trading Company. Merry Christmas!

Easy to store a large scene
Though it has several pieces it will be easy to store as they all flatten.

Haven't used yet. It's Sept.
The detail is very pretty and I like the fact it is metal, not wood. I feel it is going to make a lovely contribution to our Christmas yard display.
