Wooden Kyrgyz Creche

This one has been on here before too.  My husband put it together while we were in Kyrgyzstan the first time.  They do sell sets that use these, but I like this one because I can rearrange the people the way I want them.  It's the only set I have where there are women besides Mary (the one with the shorter white fabric hanging from her chin is one, and the other is the right side of the short pair). 

In this photo they're arranged to have Mary, Joseph, and Jesus with Anna and Simeon standing behind them; two short shepherds, male and female; and two Wise Men.  I've also rearranged it with the one who's Simeon above as a Wise Man and Anna as a midwife.
