Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kteacherj Beautiful but doesn't last
I love this set but it does not hold up well. I purchased this second set after the first one bubbled an peeled. This one did the same thing the very first year. I even tried coating it with a polyurethane seal before putting it out but it didn't help at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMR52 It was a good buy and looks very nice, so colorful!
Beautifully painted, easy to assemble and store during the off season. Needs to be set up before ground is froze or wait until it snows so feet hold. Strong winds can push over so re-enforce back side .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrugalGail We are so happy with this set!
We are so pleased with this nativity set. In our harsh Buffalo weather we decided to protect it from the elements by spraying it with 2 coats of Krylon UV protection spray. It was inexpensive and easy to do and I am sure that it will extend the life of these metal pieces outdoors. I agree with other reviewers that the stakes are short, so these would need extra reinforcement in a windy location. (Our set is close to the house and under a tree, so it's not an issue. The short stakes are fine.) We love that they have no facial features. It allows the viewer to perhaps see themselves/their features in the Holy Family. This set looks particularly stunning when you direct a floodlight on them at night. That really makes a difference. We have gotten so many compliments on this nativity set. And best of all, they fold flat and take up little storage space when not in use, which is most of the year. We love this nativity set!!! It's an excellent value.

I have had these for now a few years after about the third year the paint peels and bubbles ,flakes off. and the stakes are to short the new England winter winds they blow right over. I really liike these wish the paint ws more duriable and the stakes longer so they didnt blow over.They need faces.

Very good quality for the price. Had been looking for an outdoor nativity scene and most of the sets I found were over $100. For $60, I was able to purchase the Holy Family and an angel. I like having the opportunity of purchasing additional pieces. I'm looking forward to December when I can setup the display!

This appears to be very nice. I received it after Christmas so won't get it put out until next year. I believe I will spray it with acrylic before using it, to protect it. But other reviewers are correct--the "stakes" aren't long enough to hold the figures up, especially in this Arkansas rock! I think they are only 4-5" long. I will find another way to make sure they are secured, but it could be quickly fixed by adding another 2-3" to the stakes. At the price this costs--it SHOULD be fixed!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lisamomof5 Not worth 34.98!!!
Very poorly constructed!!! I had to keep standing them up as the spikes are not long enough to keep them up. Very disappointed with this purchase!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadyOrv Great purchase
We bought this item 4 or 5 years ago. It has withstood the weather, and looks great from the street. We put a spotlight on ours to highlight it. One of the comments mentioned that they tended to blow over in high wind. This year, we put a brick on the back of Joseph and Mary, and this took care of that problem. We have received several compliments on this yard decoration.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jodi I am very satisfied with my purchase.
To tell the truth, I looked at this Nativity set for several years but would not pay the original price with the shipping. I finally purchased it this year and was not disappointed. I've actually had a couple compliments on it. The only negative I can tell you is that the Joseph & Mary lean forward. You need something to hold the hinged stand on the back in the open position.

This is a well made and colorful little metal outdoor nativity set. It should last for years. Some people may not like the fact the characters do not have faces.
