It is made of hard plastic. It is old, maybe 1940's? It's missing the sheep and I think an angle from the box it came in. They always gave Mary blond hair in Europe. I have a wooden Nativity that’s made from olive wood. It was made in Bethlehem. A good friend gave it to me as a gift. I actually keep it up all year around. I like this plastic set. I was telling Sarah the story of the wise men bringing baby Jesus gifts for Christmas. We tell our kids this is why we give each other gifts on Christmas.
