#273 Abbey Press Plush Nativity

Acquired 2001

Purchased, November 2001, this set was a new feature this year from Abbey Press. In that I have several lovely children's sets, I hesitated whether I should make another investment. But it looked “cute” in the catalog, so I ordered it! This set is absolutely lovely with exquisite and multiple detailing. It is an all-fabric bean bag set! The stable is also cloth and becomes the holder for the pieces when they are put away. It includes 14 creative pieces. The three animals, camel, sheep, and donkey, all have button-on movable legs. This set includes the traditional Mary, Joseph and Baby, an angel, a shepherd, and the three kings. In addition, there is the drummer boy and a palm tree! Purchase price, $158.
