“ Brand: Disney / Type: Snow Globe „
Disney regularly have beautiful ornaments and things for your home and most are aimed at adults rather than children. Disney films are great and I always loved Beauty and the Beast the most. As a 21st birthday present my boyfriend bought me this snow globe which is huge and a lovely reminder of a momentous birthday. I have this out on show on my dressing table and it looks very cute. I was so pleased with this when I opened it, although I do not think at the time I released how much it cost. ==Price and availability== The Belle Ballroom snow globe is expensive and currently you can buy it for £105 from the Disney store online. I think my boyfriend paid £75 for it quite a few years ago for my 21st birthday. ==Description== This is a truly beautiful snow globe that is well crafted and made with incredible detail. The ornament measures around 300 mm tall and 180 mm wide. It can certainly take centre stage on any shelf or unit. The ornament features castle steps and a grand band stand on which beauty and the beast are caught in a romantic moment inside the snow bubble. On the steps you will find Cogsworth, Luminare, Mrs potts and chip. They are all painted beautifully and you can spend a while with your wandering eye taking all the detail in. The snow globe is not a typical one, ie you do not need to flip it upside down to see the glitter snow rain down, there is a little switch which activates this for you. At the same time you can hear the lovely tune of, "tale as old as time." The base of the ornament features a little plague that says Disney and Beauty and the Beast. ==My observations== We have the snow globe on the dressing table in bedroom as it gives the room a lovely girly finish to it. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite Disney films and this is a lovely collectable piece to keep forever. What I like best is the music it plays, it is soft and musical and very quaint. I like the way this looks in my room and I love how well made it is, it is really is very beautiful. It is a dust magnet though. ==Overall== This is something that we will keep forever and I am still really pleased with it. As I got it as a 21st birthday present it has a momentous meaning for me. I will keep this forever and hopefully my children will get to appreciate it too. There are many different snow globes available from Disney which you can buy in store but this one is the most beautiful I have seen. These collectable items become more and more rare as at some point Disney stop making them and build new ones. This could be worth a lot more money in the future so I will be hanging
Having a wife who is a huge Disney fan and knowing that her favourite Disney film of all time is Beauty and the Beast I regularly keep an eye out on the Disney store website to see if there is anything that catches my eye for her and last Christmas I spotted this amazing snowglobe for her but how did it go down? Pros: This is a simply stunning piece that has amazing detail throughout. The snow globe is showing the ballroom scene from the Beauty and the Beast movie and manages to re-create it in fantastic detail. The outer edges of the snowglobe are covered with a number of the main characters from the film and thanks to the use of resin for the creation of this beautiful ornament the detail able to be able to shown is simply breathtaking. This snowglobe is a large scale piece (height 30cm by a width 18cm approx) that can act as beautiful centrepiece of a table and will genrate a huge amount of compliments from those who witness this for the first time. My wife was shocked by the fact this was a snowglobe when it came to her opening this on Christmas day as she had not seen another snowglobe of this size but thankfully she was amazingly happy with this due to the level of detail and obvious work that has gone in to to creating this piece. The snowglobe plays the tune "Tale as old as time" which is one of the best known and loved songs from the film Beauty and the Beast and as this plays you can also switch on for the snow to be blown around Belle and Beast inside of the glass globe itself (this does use batteries but this is not a piece where you are going to try to save money on batteries once you have paid the price for the snowglobe itself as this is not a cheap piece). Negatives: This is a very expensive snowglobe at £75 but you are getting a truly stunning piece that is full of detail and has obviously been created with love, time and care so you are paying for something that is going to last you for years and bring you joy each time you look at it. Overall this was a piece I got for my wife for Christmas and she was delighted to receive. I was impressed with the size and intricate details of the snowglobe and it was very much obvious that this had time spent on it as it was created. Paying out for a snowglobe is not something I ever thought I would be willing to do but in this I spent £75 and am shocked to say that I do not begrudge it whatsoever as my wife simply loved this and even coming up on a year later she still looks at this regularly and comments on how much she loves it so for me this is a piece worth having for those who truly love Disney.
