Helpful Advice For Care Of Your Musical Snowglobe.
Q: Is my snowglobe suitable for children?
A: Musical snowglobes are classed as a decorative ornament. As many are made of glass and contain small parts so they are not suitable for children. We recommend that children are supervised when handling the snowglobe.
Q: Where should I display my snowglobe?
A: As with all decorative ornaments, you should display it on a shelf that is strong enough to take its weight and not in direct sunlight. Avoid extreme exposure to heat or cold.
Q: Why do snowglobes get air bubbles?
A: Do not be concerned if your snowglobe has an air bubble, it is common. There are various reasons why snowglobes develop air bubbles. Exposure to heat can cause evaporation of the water in the globe and cold can cause temporary shrinkage of the rubber seal that holds the water in the globe. Sometimes trapped air in the lining of the seal is also forced out during shipping because of vibration. The manufactures of the globe have no way to guarantee that snowglobes will not develop air bubble at some time in their lifespan.
