A beautiful Nativity that doesn't need to be out of reach of little hands! This set will help children remember and learn the Christmas story as they use the 19 wooden pieces to reenact the wonderful night of the Savior's birth. The puzzle side is a scene of the stable with the star overhead and Bethlehem in the background. When the pieces are flipped over Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus are joined by angels, shepherds, wise men and adoring animals.
On the surface, this is a normal wooden puzzle. But wait! Look at the other side! Every piece of these unique puzzles is a free-standing play figure on one side, and a puzzle piece on the other. Plus, when the puzzle is taken apart, the underlying image is the inside or background of the play area. For example, the nativity puzzle is a scene of a stable on the outskirts of Bethlehem. But after the pieces are removed, the image reveals the inside of the manger. So, kids get to assemble the puzzle, and then play with the figures and backdrop!
