I wanted to have a set that was safe for Cai to play with and that we could set up in his room every Christmas.
I bought two diy kits from Hobby Lobby. The first was blank wooden dolls that I painted myself.
The second was a foam build your own stable with a star and square black manger. It came with the foam stable in six pieces, the star and its stick, and three already made peg figurines.
I gave Cai the figurines to pla with, well, Mary and Joseph; Jesus is a bit too small.
