#313 Bearfoots Nativity
Acquired 2002From Big Sky Carvers of Manhattan, Montana, Bearfoots (Kritters of Adventure) have added another nativity set this year. This entire line is so cute and whimsical - quite darling! From sweet baby bear “Jesus” in the manger, to the attending “angels” hovering above on white wings and flexible golden wire, it is a heartwarming cute scene. Notice that the attending angels stem from hollowed out tree stumps - perfect places for bears to hide. Ordered through Colorful Images, November 2002, purchase price $59.95.Janine saw this set on the internet and told me it has more pieces than I had. Of course, I told her to get them for me!!! I now have a complete set including the Christmas tree stable, a shepherd and a “bear” king”!It is now 11 years later, 2013, and I received a gift for Christmas from Janine. I opened the box to find Bearfoots Nativity pieces which I was sure I already had! She quickly informed me, that for these 11 years, my set was NOT complete! This set included two “bear” kings, a drummer boy bear, and a “cow” bear! Sure enough, my set was missing these pieces and I now truly have a complete set!
