Now that the clocks have changed and the evenings are drawing in, people's thoughts are turning towards that special time of year, Christmas! At Barretts of Woodbridge, we're kicking off the festivities with the reveal of our all-new range of German Musical Snow Globes. These traditional, hand painted Snow Globes have been a massive hit at Barretts for several years now, and you can see why. And they're returning with a variety of new styles for the 2018 Christmas season.
Don't forget, we still have the old favourites - just visit our on-line Christmas store to see the complete range. Or better still, come and see these lovely Christmas treats for yourself in-store, plus our other fantastic festive ranges.
New for 2018
Check out this stunning wooden base 'Building a Snowman' globe; featuring two excited children building a snowman outside their wintry home, seemingly unaware of Santa's sleigh sweeping beneath their feet. This is a large snow globe, which lights up and snows and makes for quite a display! When wound up, this snow globe 'Joy to the World' plays to get you in the mood for Christmas.
This traditional Nativity Scene snow globe is truly enchanting. An angel looks on as Mary, Joseph and the animals gather around the baby Jesus in the manger. The silvered base is beautifully ornate, and a discreet button at the back, once pressed will start a gentle 'glitter' snow and light for a few of minutes. The globe plays 'Silent Night' when wound by the decorated key at the back, and the scenes inside the base rotate.
Wooden base Snow Globes are very popular, and Santa's Gnome is a charming example shows Santa getting some help making a toy solider from one of his gnomes, or perhaps he's giving a lesson? The globe plays 'The 12 days of Christmas' when wound.
Another wood base Snow Globe, relax with Santa Claus before the big day with our 'Santa in Armchair' snow globe . Wind the globe up to dance to 'Jingle Bells' with the big man himself. His lamp lights up too!
This gorgeous wintery Sleigh Ride scene is one of our favourites! The painting is very fine, with the figures in the sleigh clear and the colours vibrant. When wound, the scene rotates and 'Walking in a Winter Wonderland' plays.
He might not be a musical snow globe, but our 'Big Snowman' still plays 'Silent Night' to the villagers in his belly! This decoration will make a wonderful centrepiece to your Christmas mantlepiece. The village scenes light up, and a train rotates on the top, with Santa's sleight rotating underneath.
