The Playmobil Nativity Set is a great nativity set for children over the age of four. It not only helps to teach about the Christmas Story, but it also is one of the few dedicated Christmas toys that promotes creativity and imagination.
It will sadly soon be a collector’s item too, as Playmobil retired this set in 2010. This is a very popular play set, so if you happen to be looking for it, get it while you still can.
Children will spend hours with this set when it comes out each Christmas, and is another great set to get everyone in the Christmas spirit by spending an evening with the kids going through the story and setting it up. Children who have a play nativity set are much less likely to play with precious and often fragile display nativities.
This is one of the most complete nativity sets I have ever seen for children, and unlike similar sets, everything is included in one box with no need to buy portions separately.
And with anything made by Playmobil, this set is very durable which is perfect for children who might be a little rough on their toys. The ability to mix and match practically everything in the box keeps kids creative as they learn about the Christmas Story.
What does the Playmobil Nativity Set Include?
Made just for kids, this nativity set includes Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, the Shepard, Angel and 3 wise men. It also includes the stable and manger, a lamb, dog, donkey, cow and the camel that accompanied the wise men, complete with gift boxes, harness and saddle. All of the figurines are pose-able, and many of the human figurines come with accessories they can hold in their hands, such as a lamp for Joseph, and a star for the Angel.
It also includes a book of the Christmas Story, with illustrations depicting everyone in the nativity Playmobil style.
