Sweet Snowbabies


 Snowbabies are darling little figures that always make you smile when you see them.

They make you think about precious children and their antics.

Their faces are adorable, too. They are just the sweetest little things!


They are porcelain and hand-painted.

I love Snowbabies!

 Did you know Department 56 that makes the Dickens Village and New England Village pieces has also made hundreds of Snowbabies?

Their artist is Kristi Jensen Pierro. She modeled many of the Snowbabies from antics of her own children. 

If you Google her, you can read about her in detail.





Anyway, I just love Snowbabies and I'm always on the lookout for them in shops and at estate and yard sales.

Aren't the two in this post just adorable?

ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH SNOWBABIES?

A few years ago I found a collector downsizing her collection at a yard sale. Oh - I wish I had more money!
depending upon how well you knew the stories about them she would give you a better price.

I did come home with a couple nice pieces that day.

Sweet snow babies...only NO snow here yet to speak of. Ah, and I don't need anything else to collect so I will let you collect and show me, okay Susan?

Anon found my blog again...GRRRRRRR

I do see snowbabies from time to time and always think they are so cute but do not collect them. Next time I see one I will think of you!

hugs, Linda

I had one that a friend gave me. The snowbaby was holding my birthstone. But unfortunately, Jingles knocked it off a shelf and it hit the floor. Snowbaby is history now. :( Have a great day ! Tammy

I am familiar with them, but do not own any. I'm afraid my bell collection takes up so much space that I have no room for any more cuteness! Love to look at yours, though! :-)

Susan,
Oh yes, I love Snow Babies, and my sister collects them. I have never seen one as cute as this because it is a little box, and I love these boxes. I have a few of my own. I hope the new year is kind to you, Susan.

They are really cute. I don't collect them myself but I have always had a soft spot for sparkly snowmen. Kit

Hi Susan,
I've never seen Snow Babies except on some blogs. I think they are beautiful.
It's a good thing that I haven't seen these because I'd be collecting them. hehehe....
Have a good day

Yes, I know the Snowbabies. Really cute little things! I'm not a collector of them, though. These in your post are precious!

I love and collect Snow Babies. I have a ton. Got another this past week for under $2 at a thrift store. Perfect condition and the snowbabie was hugging Eeyore. Another of my favorites.

Hello from Spain: I love The Snowbaby. In my city stores these babies are not for sale. A pity! Keep in touch
