Holztiger Nativity figures are hands-on play for all. With Holztiger Mary, Joseph and Jesus the story comes alive. Holztiger figures and animals are handcrafted from solid maple and beech wood by a German toy maker and hand-painted with nontoxic, water-based acrylic paints. All Holztiger animals are sealed with a nontoxic water lacquer to protect the wood from perspiration and saliva. Holztiger figures are recommended for three years and up.
