One faulty snow globe. And, another snow globe video about something that is broken…

If you are a fan of snowglobes, hope you will take the time to watch our wilderside video full of interesting snowglobes such as the “Holy Moly it’s snowing in Baghdad” model. Ours have an ecological twist. See video at bottom.

If you bought a “Jumbo Snow Globe” from Hallmark (looks like Frosty the Snowman), here is some information for you about a recall:

(excerpt from) Consumer Reports Blog
Hallmark’s over-heated snowman and other holiday recalls

Today Hallmark recalled 7,000 17-inch-tall snow globes after getting two reports that the decorative globes had caused items nearby to ignite. According to the recall notice, when exposed to sunlight, the snow globes can act as a magnifying glass and ignite combustibles. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall, is advising consumers to immediately remove the snow globes from exposure to sunlight. They can be returned to Hallmark for a refund.

The “Jumbo Snow Globe” is in the shape of a snowman with model number 1XAG5093 and UPC code 795902066666. The snow globe measures 11 by 12 by 17 inches. The model number and the UPC code can be found on the back of the hangtag. They were sold at Hallmark Gold Crown stores nationwide from October 2008 through November 2008 for about $100. For additional information, contact Hallmark at (800) 425-5627 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.hallmark.com.
