Colors fade over time
on November 17, 2012
I have had my set for seven years now. They have sat through snowstorms, been encased in ice, and have ridden on floats in parades. The only mishap was that last year when I went to set it up, we blew a fuse. Fortunately, our local electronics store had just the fuse we needed!
The colors aren't as bright as they used to be, but these have weathered well.
Because they are plastic, the one thing that is a problem is wind. I tend to place mine in a sheltered spot. You can also stake them down. Do price around, since I noticed that they were less expensive at a local store, and that Amazon had multiple listings.
I also have the Three Kings and Shepherd sets, but this is a nice one to start with.
