17100 Dick Bruna's Christmas Crib.

Dick Bruna's Christmas Crib.

The play materials seem to be enclosed in a folder: on the front a picture of a crèche with little Bruna figures; on the folder back the instructions, in English, showing a little girl colouring the characters and the scene, pushing out the characters, bending the flaps, and setting up the scene. Inside would be the background with side flaps folding out and two sheets of punch out characters. (Hard to determine given the shrink wrap.) Very charming little nativity scene, with figures that can have their own skin colours and costumes.
