Yes, we know the acrylic globe has a long scrape (not deep) to the surface. This globe, however has got to be one of the most heartwarming and cheerful Christmas pieces we have seen.
As Snoopy has possibly absconded with Santa's cookie for himself, an eager Charlie Brown is reading to his little sister, Sally, in her polka dotted pink jammies, and who is struggling to stay awake. It is a nostalgic scene right out of childhood and Peanuts has captured the sentiment of Christmas Eve perfectly
Made of acrylic (no glass) and set upon a plastic red base (no sharp corners), this lovable globe goes further when the switch is turned on. As the globe lights up, a swirl of silver glitter spins around while one of three Holiday songs plays. And if one does not wish to hear the music and just wishes to watch the glitter swirls peacefully in silence, you can turn the switch to the far right.
This globe comes with a "Try Me" button which works independently, free of any batteries. We are not sure how long the battery to this switch will last, but the globe itself, with three AA batteries (not included), is independent of the switch and operates beautifully.
Charming and just peacefully adorable.
Songs played: "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", "Silent Night", Jingle Bells".
Origin: China; pre-owned
Dimensions: 8 1/2"H x 4 1/4"W Square Base

There is no damage to the interior figurines or to the red base. The detail is sharp and the colors are vivid. The glitter is clean and shiny.
