Perhaps I would have been developmentally stunted because I did not own the classic Fisher Price Little People Bus as a child but luckily my cousins did and I was able to load the bus and drive the bus thus thwarting developmental arrest. I am kidding of course, but the point is that Fisher Price Little People toys have been great pretend play additions to any home with young children for a long time.
One of my favorite Fisher Price Little People toys, for my children of course, is the Fisher Price Little People Deluxe Nativity Set.
Our nativity set is the most cherished Christmas decoration that I climb the attic stairs to retrieve each holiday season. It reminds our family and our guests that the birth of Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season.
“And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7
My own ceramic nativity set was given to me by grandmother, so it is very special to me. At my house special plus fragile generally means hands off but my children were so fascinated with our nativity set and especially the baby Jesus figurine. (I once found him in my son’s jeans pocket when doing laundry.)
I am glad that Fisher Price has a created a nativity just for kids that they can touch, play with and enjoy as they reenact the Christmas story.
All of the figures in the Little People Deluxe Nativity Set are made from the soft, squeezable plastic that is virtually unbreakable and safe for young children. The deluxe set features 18 pieces including a crèche’ which is six inches tall. The crèche’ has a star on top that lights up and it plays “Away in a Manger” when the angel is attached.
The Deluxe Fisher Price Little People Nativity Comes With:
4 pieces of fencing (they snap together and can also snap to the crèche)
The Three Wise men (one figure is Asian, one is African American and one is European)
A bale of hay that opens up as a feeding trough
The Fisher Price Deluxe Nativity Set does require 3 AAA batteries and one of those tiny screwdrivers no parent should be without in order to activate the lights and music.
The Fisher Price Little People Nativity Set is a great set for families that want to share the story of Jesus’ birth and have a hands on learning toy that children can enjoy to reenact the Christmas story. Children can play with this durable and fun nativity set for years.
