“ Brand: Disney / Type: Snow Globe „
My children have been collection Disney snowglobes for years. It all started when my son was 5 and he received his first snowglobe for his birthday and as it could get damaged he had to keep it on a shelf on display instead of playing with it ever since then he has asked for a snowglobe for christmas or birthdays and the collection grew and grew, the girls also collect the snowglobes now.
I normally only purchase the snowglobes from the Disney store however we did bring a few back after being on holiday to Disneyworld,ebay always have Disney snowglobes on the website for reasonable prices.
Stitch is one of my sons favourite Disney characters and he comes from the movie lilo and stitch.
Disney stitch deluxe snowglobe is a special snowglobe and i did not realise why at the time of purchase. As i couldn't find a stitch snowglobe in time for my sons birthday from the Disney store i resorted to purchasing the globe from Ebay. This stitch deluxe snowglobe had been listed as used and did not comes box but my son still loved it. I paid £15.00 on Ebay uk.
Disney stitch deluxe snowglobe is very sweet and contains loads of detail. The globe measures roughly 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide, he is classed as a medium sized snowglobe. The snowglobe is set out like stitch the experiment theme, he is blue in colour with a red spacesuit. The detail in the figure is so accurate just like stitch looksin the movie, he has his angry face on ready to throw a strophe is good at that also in the movie. The globe looks like a clear capsule with stitch centred in the middle of the base,on the bottom of the base it says experiment 626.
The snowglobe is colourful and detailed with sparkly glitter squares and not snow but most of the snowglobes we have from Disney have the glitter rather than the white snow. Disney stitch deluxe snowglobe is made from resin and glass,this globe is heavy compared to others we have.
What makes this Disney stitch deluxe snowglobe special from the others is the globe lights up green inside the capsule , this requires AA batteries to do so but really adds to the Disney magic for my son as he proudly shows everyone that looks at his collection.
I am happy with this Disney stitch deluxe snowglobe and so is my son. The only thing that's annoying buying second hand is not having the box. We have every box from each globe we have purchased but this one not a huge issue really. If you are Disney daft or a snowglobe collector this is one to add to the dust collection, fantastic snowglobe with lots of detail and stitch looks very cute even with his angry face ,its easy to fall in love with stitch.
As you are no doubt aware, I'm absolutely mad about Betty Boop and have reviewed a number of my gorgeous figurines. My hubby also has a passion and that is for Stitch. You may not have heard of Stitch, as when I first met hubby, I didn't have a clue who or what he was!
Let me tell you a little about Stitch. He's a Disney character who was named after the genetic experiment 626 and created by Dr Jumbo Jukiba. He is mischievous, wicked and extremely short-tempered, but very, very cute and was initially created to cause chaos and mayhem across the galaxy. You may well have heard of the cartoon Lilo and Stitch as in the first episode, his mistress Lilo, adopted Stitch as her "puppy dog".
When Stitch loses his temper, he sprouts an additional two pairs of arms and two antenna on the top of his head and he is extremely naughty. Stitch has a passion and that is for Elvis Presley and if you are familiar with the DVD's, you will regularly see Stitch dancing and singing along to an Elvis classic! If you google "Stitch" on the internet, you will be surprised to see how many matches you will receive for this delightful little character, who even has his own dictionary for his Stitch language.
I've given you a little background on Stitch, now on to my review of the Stitch Deluxe Snowglobe, which I bought hubby for Christmas last year. As hubby has every imaginable collectable of this cute blue furry character, I was delighted to see this gorgeous snowglobe on the Disney website.
The globe stands at 13 cms in height and 11 cms in diameter and is extremely heavy. As you can see in the photograph above that I provided to Dooyoo, a 5 cm Stitch figurine stands in the centre of the snowglobe. However, Stitch is evidently angry as he is displaying his extra arms and antenna.
The globe has been manufactured from an extremely sturdy plastic and has been painted in silver to resemble that of Stitch's cage and for those of you who are familiar with this cute little Disney character, you will recognise it from the films. The cage has been painted to depict tiny bricks and underneath is a red banner advising us that Stitch is experiment 626.
Stitch is blue and furry with huge ears and a wicked smile, which reveals all of his tiny teeth. The first time I watched this little character on television, I felt he was a little scary, particularly as he is predominantly aimed at a younger audience. However, as I watched more of this loveable character and learned of his friends, I realised that he is quite adorable and very cute.
He has a standard costume and this is what we see him wearing in this gorgeous snowglobe. He wears an orange spacesuit with a yellow triangular motif on his front and sleeves. The dome shaped globe is manufactured from a toughened glass and contains a clear liquid, together with hundreds of tiny square sparkles, which when shaken, float through the liquid and create a beautiful "snow" effect.
There is also a beautiful green light on this globe, which is operated by way of 2 AAA batteries and turned on with a tiny black switch on its' underside. The globe appears considerably spectacular when the light is in operation as it creates a beautiful effect, particularly as it enhances the tiny square sparkles. Unfortunately, the photograph does not do justice to this globe and in my opinion, makes it appear a little cheap. However, if you know a Stitch fanatic, I am certain they will not be disappointed with this as the quality and workmanship are simply superb.
For some unknown reason, you will not find this snow globe in Disney stores as it is only available on their UK website for £35. However, in order to receive free delivery, Disney require a £75 spend, otherwise you will be required to pay £4.95 postage and packing. I have only once ordered from the Disney website and was thrilled with their prompt service and my items were carefully packed to prevent any risk of damage.
If you love Stitch, you will love this deluxe snowglobe, which receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
