Fabulous Foam Self-Adhesive Nativity Shapes
Not an equal amount of pieces
These are great, but there's not an equal amount of pieces. You could just give it to your kid and have them let loose, which would be fine (but not so much for the money). We separated the stickers into "groups" and it produced a lot, which is great (about 16-18 groups), but the groups were slightly uneven. Like Baby Jesus wasn't in the last 2 groups, for instance. Overall its good, though, you just have to ration it with some children.

Much cuter than the picture, but...
The stickers I received were not made of foam, but printed on foam board. On the plus side, they were very cute! All the figures were of a comparable size unlike the picture where Mary is larger than Joseph and the sheep are larger than the shepherd. I was very pleased when I opened the package. On the negative side, the foam board makes them less durable and in shipping some pieces got bent or dented and are not usable. Many of the figures were misprinted or mis-cut, so the images ran off the edges. Also, as noted in other reviews there is an uneven distribution of the figures. I only need two complete scenes, so this was not a problem for me. I received the following distribution:
-32 baby Jesuses
-8 standing sheep
-24 right facing sitting sheep
-24 left facing sitting sheep
-16 palm trees
-24 kings with grey beards
-16 kings with no beard
-24 kings with red beards
-23 green trimmed gifts
-27 brown trimmed gifts
-24 purple trimmed gifts
-24 large stars
-unknown number of assorted smaller stars

Perfect and great for the price!
We used these at a craft table at our church's Christmas party. We thought young kids would enjoy it but were surprised to see the teens making beautiful scenes with these pieces too. Great quality. We didn't have a problem with the quantity of any piece since the kids used them in so many ways. (for example one child just used the three wise men on the bottom and a star at the top). Some kids cut out photos from christmas cards put it in a foam frame and used the pieces to decorate the frames. This item is great and for the price it is exceptional. I'm reordering now.

I used this with my Sunday School class and their eyes lit up immediately. It really helped peak their interest in the nativity story. For the large pieces I got 9 each and for the small pieces I got 18 each so it can only be used for small classes. But the quantity I got for the price was most acceptable.

A few hitches
I had the same problem as many others...too many of one type of sticker, too few of another. Not good in a Sunday School class. Surely there is a way to even things out. Because you would have to buy multiple units to ensure having enough of each piece, the price is way to high.

Nativity Foam Stickers
I love the product, the only problem with these types of "packages" is that there are unequal amounts of characters and you cannot complete a set. Therefor, much of the package is wasted. Please, in the future put equals amounts of characters, items.

Too many stars
WAY too many stars & only 54 Jesus's in 1000 pieces! So, not all the kids will get full nativity sets they'll just have to draw the rest. One entire lot of palm trees needs trashed b/c they have paper stuck all over the front of them. Overall, for the price, they will work, just wish they gave me more Jesus!

I like them but...
I like the stickers even though there were some that were not cut right and there weren't enough of some of the pieces. We made cards so the Kindergarten children made use of the stickers in a variety of ways. However I would like to see you make these into sticker sets like some of the other sets. This way there would be enough of each of the figures and they would all be the same size.

SUPER GOOD BUY!!!!!!
I brought these to have on hand to use. I love all the different designs, great variety, even better than I expected. Variety of sizes, colors and the colors are vibrate and not dull. You get a lot for your money. I am a really big fan of stickers and I use a lot of them in my projects. I like to have a lot of different kind of stickers on hand to use with my projects.
I am going to use them on my Christmas cards that I am going to make for Christmas, on some gift bags, I am also going to use some of them on a small Christmas tree skirt, and on some door knob hangers

My kids love stickers, and I am constantly looking for new and different stickers for them to play with. I bought these stickers to go in their Christmas stockings. While they stick well and portray the nativity scene, I was quite disappointed with the quality of the stickers. I had to sort through them and throw out several pieces that were off center. An angel missing half her head, a shepherd with no feet, etc.
