H192528 - Bethlehem Lights Battery Operated 6"Egg Snowmanwith Timer
Really Cute Decorations
My holiday theme is Snowmen. I bought both styles of this adorable decoration. They are perfect for table top placement, on mantels, etc. I have an foyer that has two tables in it and by putting one of them on each table with some tree greens, it makes an adorable welcome to my home. The light emitted gives my hallway a very nice warm feeling.
The price is an excellent buy.
I purchased after Christmas 2011 on clearance, to go with another Beth Lights snowman on timer with legs. I put it up anyway since I leave my decorations up longer than most (toward the end of January). I got so many compliments on the one with legs so it was placed in the same nook in my kitchen that I decorated the snowman with legs. The legs light up on the other snowman, as well as the snowman. I placed some cotton "snow" underneath and stuck a few miscellaneous items on it (2 Christmas village trees I got for 50 cents each, a metallic car with a Christmas tree on top that I got for under a dollar -- all at after-Christmas sales at the end of January when it's pretty much "everything must go."). I called it my "fun corner" because most of my decorations are more formal and elegant. I got so many compliments on the "fun corner" at my Christmas gathering.
Egg Snowmanwith Timer
I have and love this snowman.. I can have him out all winter long.
These are so adorable! I ordered all three styles for myself and ordered extras for my daughters and some other family members. They will make great gifts for next Christmas. I do agree that the battery compartment is a little difficult to get into but as long as you have a mini screwdriver or as someone else mentioned a screwdriver for glasses you shouldn't have a problem. I love the size...they are a little bigger than I imagined and I love how the colors change. I can't wait to put these out next Christmas!
Does Anyone Test Products?
Very cute but wouldn't work out of the box. I tested the batteries--new with full power. I even put them in the opposite way because I had heard something once that something was wired backwards. going back.
I ordered two of these for my Mother's birthday (12/22). When I first received them,I installed the batteries (some difficulty as many others point out) and they worked perfectly....and were adorable. Just before wrapping, I turned them on and one of them would not light at all! So at the last minute, I was without these as a gift for my Mother. I love Bethlehem Lights' products, but they really need to offer more reliable products. Unfortunately, both of these are going back as I do not have any confidence in the other one to continue working either. I will be very hesitant in the future to order BL products until I have some assurance their quality control has improved!!!
I gave 3 as gifts and all my friends loved them! I put batteries in so they could be turned on as soon as they were opened. Yes, the screw to the battery compartment is tiny, but if you have a small eyeglass screwdriver, no problem. A cute, reasonably priced gift for anyone that wants a little Christmas cheer.
So Cute You Could almost hug him
I love these guys. I have the snowman with bucket of snow balls and ordered one for a gift. Installing the batteries is a little tricky, and you have to have a really small screwdriver to open, but it is worth the trouble. It is on every night and I hope you have some more next Christmas
Cheerful & Delightful Part of the Holidays!!!!
These cute snowmen are a cheerful & delightful part of the holidays. I purchased 2 and then came back for 2 more. They make me smile when they are on and even when they are off. I will agree that the battery compartments are a bit tough to open as the screw seems like it is never undone but I just took a magnet from my fridge it up it came. The clearance price is great and I believe that these snowmen would be much more in a retail store. Thanks QVC!!!! For these adorable friends for the holidays.
Cute, Cute, Cute
Love this snowman and had no problems with the battery cover.
really cute and bigger than it seems
Received these and they are adorable. I expected them to be smaller than they are. I ordered these in time to get all three versions (pail, present and wreath). Received the wreath and present and have tested those so far. They are big in diameter which makes them a nice size.
My only challenge was the battery door. It is held closed by a little screw. You need a little screwdriver. Regular size wont work. One of the covers wouldn't come off when I unscrewed the screw but I was not about to send it back when they are sold out. I cut along the seam of the cover until I got it open. The batteries fit nice. It has a switch. They are cute and colorful.
My only suggestion to the manufacturer. Can you make these with an electric cord. I had some snow people back when and there was a base with three light sockets for colored bulbs like you put on the Christmas (can't write Xmas - was told by a friend once how dare you take Christ out of Christmas). tree. And, the lights faced upwards. This base had a cord to plug. Then the bottom of the snowman which would be hollow would fit on top of the lights and voile. If it had an electric cord with a base I would have given this product a 5 plus.
That while these egg snowmen are very cute, as cute as the snowmen couple, it IS difficult to open the battery box. I DO have arthritis problems, but I was determined to get it open without waiting for my husband to get home from work. BL needs to use the type of box with the pull open handle, not the screw type. Majority opinion should rule. As you can see, many people have the same complaint. Luckily, mine did work when I finally got the batteries in.I gave him 4 stars for cuteness, and recommend him for cuteness, but not for ease of battery use.
