#559 Peanuts Nativity Possible Dreams

Acquired 2009

While our family was visiting Knotts Berry Farm in December 2009, just before leaving the park, Janine spotted this nine-piece Peanuts Nativity in one of the gift shops. She called me on her cell phone and guided me to the store she was in. As soon as I saw it, I told the clerk to box it up for me! The set is called Possible Dreams by Clothtique.Clothtique are hand-sewn stiffened fabrics combined with hand-painted resin blends. These combined materials create the magic of Clothtique as everyone's favorite comic strip characters, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, come to life in the nativity story called Possible Dreams.It was sold as three sets at $85 each from Department 56, released in 2009. Charlie Brown's Christmas Play includes the Stable, Lucy (Mary), Charlie (Joseph) and Woodstock (as Baby Jesus). The three kings include Franklin (the boy king), Marcy (in yellow wearing glasses), and Peppermint Patty (in pink). The last set is the angel and shepherd set including Sally (the angel with a trumpet), Linus (the shepherd) and Snoopy (as a lamb). Total purchase price, $255.
