#56 Animal Set

Acquired 1992

Purchased from Rhonda Burtis' Christmas Around the World home party November 12, 1992. This set is unique to this company, and unique to me in that there are only animals surrounding Baby Jesus. It is a round grape rope base with a lighted (battery operated) wooded stable. The set includes a camel, cow, donkey, lamb, chicken, and duck all surrounding the Baby Jesus. This is another one of those sets that wasn't too impressive in the catalog, but I purchased it anyway because it was different. But once I received it, it was so special that it has become one of my favorites. While I was able to purchase it half price because of other purchased items, its list price was $32.90.
