These wonderful Disney snowglobes are now appearing on DisneyShopping.com. Both are listed as having been created exclusively for Disney Store Europe. Ummmm. Then what the heck are they doing on DisneyShopping.com? The Bedknobs and Broomsticks (must have it, might not be able to wait for a sale on this one) globe is listed as a limited edition of 600. I do not have a UK listing to compare it to but the Hunchback snowglobe is listed as a limited edition of 750 and the UK website says it is limited to 2000. Ummmm. What the heck? Limited edition sizes and exclusives and so forth don't mean a lot to me. I buy what I like and I like what I buy, but it would be nice to know just what the facts are.
While writing this post, I decided to email guest services at DisneyShopping.com and was checking the UK site to make sure I had my facts straight. Turns out the UK listing states there are no more then 2000 made and after it being on the UK site for a number of weeks now you can still purchase one that has the number between 19 and 50. Guess maybe they aren't selling too well over there which explains why they are being made available here and the reduction in edition size.
And just so you know, I decided to buy the Bedknobs and Broomsticks snowglobe instead of taking a chance on missing out. There is a 15% off new arrivals code and I got 2 which put my total over $75 so I get free shipping with my Disney Visa. I figure there's a good chance this will be the only B&B globe ever produced.
