Reviews - What do customers think about Nativity-What God Wants For Christmas (ORD #053897?
A wonderful new tradition Dec 22, 2008
The book contains a brief rhyme from the angel's perspective for each day. They are beautifully written and correspond with the figure in the box for that day. I don't know how much I want my children to play with it (not super sturdy boxes, not all the characters) - there are better sets for that - like the Little People Nativity by Fisher Price. My favorite part of each day is the question posed to the children. There is a Bible verse to look up to help answer the question. My children get excited to look up the verse to see what the Bible says. We are using this with a five and seven year old. I think it is best suited for ages 4 to 9.
Family Christmas Tradition - it will become a Classic! Nov 30, 2008
My grandchildren love this set! In fact my 6 year old granddaughter wants to play with it all year round. Nothing blesses your heart more than to see your grandchildren reenact the birth of Christ and each time they play with it they put the words into their heart. What God wants for Christmas is YOU!
If you purchase this set my advice is to purchase the hardcover book with CD also. The children can play with the set and listen along with the CD. The hardcover book is very pretty on it's own but the best of both worlds would be to have both.
I recommend that you make this a tradition for your family as you share the TRUE meaning of Christmas.
Best Tradition Jun 16, 2008
We purchased this for our family and then for our Godchildren and made it a tradition at Christmas. They look forward to what is in each box and seems to forget from year to year. It is a fun way to review the Christmas story and remember the true meaning. Our smaller kids love playing with the box's contents too.
Fun and educational! Jan 14, 2008
What God wants for Christmas is a great teaching tool for anyone who wants to tell children the real story of Christmas. My Granddaughter played with it for hours and wanted me to read the story over and over. She was so happy to know what God wanted for Christmas. Box number 7 reveals the gift God wants from you. Kids love to get to the end and reveal the gift. The pieces are sturdy so little ones can play with them and rearranging them on the board is fun. This kept a 4 year old busy for a couple of hours! That's a miracle too!
Wonderful! Jan 13, 2008
This was wonderful...just what I was looking for! My daughter (3) loved it and looked forward each day to opening the next box. I know she'll be excited to do it again next year. My only complaint is that I wish there were 3 wise men and maybe a couple more shepherds. But other than that, it's great. A wonderful way to share the Christmas story and the Gospel with a young child.
