Our number one line in nativities, Fontanini Heirloom Nativity pieces can be purchased individually, making them the perfect gift to add to each year. Also available is a set specifically designed as a child’s first nativity and another that is a wedding set. Others prefer to put together their own set. We have had scores of customers who appreciate the child-proof material they are made of. The Lesso Family has used their set to teach their children the true meaning of Christmas and the gathering of the nativity figures to the stable in time for Jesus birth on December 25 is a wonderful family tradition.
