PRODUCT: Tidlo Wooden Nativity Scene (www.john-crane.co.uk )John Crane Tidlo Wooden Nativity Scene

DESCRIPTION: A 17-piece wooden role-play Nativity set for children, containing stable with detachable Star of Bethlehem, three wise men, infant Jesus and his manger, Mary, Joseph, three shepherds, camel, sheep, donkey, cow and tree. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Whatever your views on religion, the story of the nativity is an important Christian lesson that most children are made aware of from an early age, and this beautiful and educational Tidlo Nativity Scene is a fantastic way of introducing young children through this famous Christmas story in a really fun and uncomplicated way.

The set is very modern in its design and contains a generous number of stand-alone pieces for your child to re-enact their very own festive nativity scene. Not only are the all the pieces solid wood which makes them incredibly durable, but they are a really nice chunky size for little hands to hold, arrange and manoeuvre.

The pieces include a wonderful open-fronted stable, fairly large in structure and complete with arched window, pitched roof and fun detachable Star of Bethlehem which simply pegs onto the front of the roof. In addition, the set includes the classic nativity characters of Mary and Joseph, the three wise men, three shepherds and of course the baby Jesus and his manager, along with a tree and a selection of animals associated with the Nativity (donkey, cow, sheep and camel) to help set the scene.

The pieces are wonderfully colourful to provide lots of visual stimulation, and the attention to detail in their painting is simply amazing, for example in the animal markings, the straw design of the stable and the costumes, facial features and accessories of the figures, including the shepherds' staffs and the gifts form the three wise men representing gold, frankincense and myrrh.

This is, in our opinion, a really delightful set which is finished to a very high standard, and is beautifully designed to appeal to children of a wide age range, encouraging plenty of role play as well as communication and discussion around the Christmas story.  

BAD POINTS: The set is quite pricey but you get great quality for your money.

PRICE: Approx. £30
