Have enjoyed Nativity Puzzle
We bought one several years ago for our grandchildren and have had many years of enjoyment. We love the wooden puzzle. It has been hardy. We bought another one this year as a gift for a cousin.

The puzzle is beautiful and well made but the blades used to make the interlocking cuts left such a tight fit that the puzzle is difficult to use. I hand sanded each inset groove so that we could use the puzzle, but then it made it usable and the graphic & wood quality is very nice.

Not so good
The nativity puzzle has the picture I wanted, but the pieces are so tight, the layered wood splits while trying to take the puzzle out, even when I'm the one doing it. I bought 8 for our grandchildren and now I have a lot of gluing to do during an already busy time of year.

VERY THIN WOOD
I really love the nativity scene and how there is a picture at the top for the kids to refer too but the wood is so thin, and will break extreemly easy. Might as well of been a thick cardboard instead of wood. I would expect this thin wood from the dollar store puzzles but not here.

Very good quality
It is a very nice gift. I would buy it again.

Content for the Price
It was a good price on an almost fair-quality product. I call it 'fair' quality because for the sale price of $1.49, I couldn't expect much better. I'm content with my purchase.
These wooden pieces need to be initially separated carefully. Smooth out or sand the jagged splintered parts, if you can. Once initially broken apart, it's easy to put the puzzle back together.
Ideally, if giving as a gift, do open the package and pre-break the pieces apart since you know that can be an issue. I wish I had done that, but I didn't test out this product.
I really like the preview picture on the puzzle.

Works great with the Sunday school children. They love it!

My 4 year old loves anything nativity. I got this for her. The wood pieces are really stuck together when you get it. The pieces break off when trying to get the puzzle apart. I did it myself, and I was being careful. Also the sticker of the picture is coming off and I have only had it 3 days.

Good wooden puzzle
Loved the idea- there were some splinters on the edges. Could use some sanding before child plays with it. But pieces feel solid and picture is not peeling off.
Makes a great Christmas activity!
