Last year I really wanted to find a nativity set that Gianna could play with to help prepare her for Christmas.
I eyed that Fisher Price set and were surprised by how expensive they were.
This year I did a little online shopping and found an adorable set out of resin that was unbelievably reasonable and durable.
Aren't these guys just precious?
Gianna has spent HOURS playing with her "Na-tiffany" - and it has been touching (and hilarious) to watch.
The cast of characters include the usual Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, an angel, 3 kings and a shepherd ~
occasionally joined by Diego, the dollhouse family, a purple pony and even an extra Mary and Joseph.
One of my dearest friends started a beautiful tradition with Gianna. Each year on the anniversary of Gianna's baptism, Lisa sends her a piece of this Fontanini nativity set. She got Mary last year and Joseph this year. I keep these two out year round so Gianna is always reminded of these important role models. I love that they're kid-proof as well as beautiful!
