Color Your Own Snowman Snow Globes
The kids loved them & they looked wonderful with the pictures inside. The snow globes were a good size and we put our own drawings along with some extra photos inside. Filling them was a little difficult and the tab that holds the pictures in broke off on many...but a little tape held them just fine.

TOO SMALL and HARD TO FILL
I was so disappointed. The kids were excited, but that all went to the wayside when we tried to fill these up. I had to use an eye dropper! It took about 8 minutes a globe (times 23 is a lot of time). Not a quality product and would not order them or recommend them.

Good deal for the price
I got this as little gifts for my toddler daughter's friends. Instead of using the snowman, I carefully personalized it with little pictures. For the price, it's a very cute item. As for assembly, I made sure to read all the reviews to prepare myself. I ended up using a new bulb syringe to fill it up with water. I could never get it perfect (there was always a little bit of an air bubble and I wish there was more glitter and snow but overall they turned out so adorable. It's hard to find small pics to fit in it perfectly but luckily with a design background I was able to size and print it out with good results. I did have to pick images that were lighter since it's a little hard to see with darker pics. Overall the result was great but I have to admit, it took me more than a few times to get it perfect.

These could have been a little bigger. But they were easy to do and I put a picture of each child in them with one side the color piece. I had to use a straw to fill them with water, but once that was figured out, they were a snap.

Virtually Impossible to fill with Water
A good product with one major design defect.
It has a very small hole for adding the water. This makes it virtually impossible to fill with water. For water to get in, air must get out, and there is second hole for the air to exit.The single hold is so small that it cannot serve both purposes and surface tension closes it. Putting it under water does not permit water to enter, and trying to put it under a faucet fails also.With great effort, a super narrow stream may let a little water in, but few children could pull this off, and I, an adult, did not get one more than a third full before I gave up in frustration.
It appears the product was not tested before being marketed. . If this problem was fixed, they would have an excellent product.
My son enjoyed the coloring of the first one, and if it had been possible to fill it with water, it would have been something he could give to relatives with pride.

Worst Craft Project
It was hard to fill up with water. They leaked and got the paper inside wet. The kids-age 7 to 8 weren't into them. Waste of money.

Classroom purchase: arm to hold picture in broke and water would not go into the globe. We tried several ways and finally had to give them coffee straws. Then getting the water to fill up both sides was difficult. This turned into an hour long project.
