10 of the Best Wooden Nativity Sets for Kids to Play With

One of the things I love about a wooden Nativity Set is that they are made to last! Not only are they robust & tactile, but they're also eco-friendly too, making them a perfect gift to share. For me, the best Nativity sets are the ones that invite young children to dive in & play encouraging hands-on exploration of the Christmas Story. This selection of Nativity Sets do just that, so whether you're looking for one for your family, a gift for a child, or one for your Classroom or Church, there's something for all ages here.
