Because nativities are created entirely of wood and natural materials, never display them near an open flame such as candles or a fireplace, or a direct heat source.  Because we have no control over display location or use of your nativity, we cannot assume any liability for the product however it is used. As there are many small, fascinating pieces in each nativity, it is always best to keep the nativity well out of the reach of small children where those pieces could cause a choking hazard.
