the blowmolds are plastic christmas decorations (nativity set).

If the existing paint is structurally sound but faded, then I would wash then paint. If the finish is gone, I would wash, prime, then paint.

I will not need to prime. What type of paint should I use?

Painting plastic

You will need to thoroughly clean with TSP (trisodium phosphate), sand to give tooth and spray with acrylic spray paint.
