Super Deluxe Nativity Scene
Beautiful and colorful but not enough support and average quality.
Beautiful and unique design and loved the fact of having a yard decoration that I did not have to provide electricity to and could see during the day; however, the quality is not that good. I had to add wooden stakes and poles to the back of the taller items to keep them from blowing down. The construct only provides a short metal frame to support the individual items. In addition, some of the slots to connect the 2 pieces together were not installed properly so I had to struggle to get a couple of them attached. Also, the paint started coming off where the pieces come together. The metal design of each figure is strong and the colors are bright and beautiful but there were some quality issues. It is not as flimsy as other holiday yard decorations I have seen nor as cheesy looking. Overall, I really like the decoration but not how much extra work it took to get it to stay up and put together and how soon the paint started coming off.

Glad I bought it!
I had been looking for a pretty Nativity for outdoors. This fit the bill well! It is large enough to make a noticeable impact in your yard but sized well not to take up too much storage space.

Love this Nativity Scene.
Loved this purchase. It is well made for the price. In looking over the other customer reviews I was prepared for the possible instability of the taller figures so I braced them with stakes in the back. I had no problem even during a windy snowstorm. They show up well during the day because of the bright colors but the small clear strands of lights I used at night weren't enough to show the figures. Next year I will have them lit up with flood lights which I hope will show the scene better at night. I am very happy with this purchase and look forward to setting it up for many years to come.

Much better than expected.
One small complaint being that it needed more and larger spikes to hold it upright.

TIMBER!!! Super Deluxe Nativity Scene
Why Timber?? Because each piece kept falling, would not stay firm in the ground and if a small breeze came through....TIMBER!! Assembly was extremely easy. Keeping the individual pieces in the ground without falling over (due to top weight of some of the pieces) or falling due to some wind was impossible!! More reinforcement needs to come with this nativity scene. Every day I was having to set up the nativity scene as if it were day 1 of me putting it out for display! I will be returning this product for a FULL REFUND!!

The figures won't stay standing up.
For the cost of this nativity set, I believe the manufacturer could have made the stakes on the bottom of the figures longer so they would go further into the ground. I had to purchase wooden stakes at a cost of $25 to drive into the ground behind the figures and then tie the figures to the stakes so they wouldn't fall over.

I've gotten compliments on my Nativity Scene, just wish you would make the camel and cow also

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.
