Rated 1 out of 5 by Shaebud DISSAPPOINTED
I could not wait to put this sphere outside it looked so beautiful on TV.. But, I could not get this sphere to work. Put brand new batteries in & it would not light! Went on QVC website and read that the majority of reviews were that the product did not light. Did not expect such a defect from plow & hearth. QVC's Quality Control needs to check on this.

Just what I wanted to put in front of my house. Received it, and low and behold, it doesn't light. Tried changing the batteries, still didn't work. It will be going back.
Rated 3 out of 5 by MIKI1999 MINE WORKS but...
I'm still not sure whether I'll keep it and the fact that I'll lose $12.50 minimum if I do complicates the decision. I ordered the Nativity. It's okay in appearance but I'm not as impressed by it in person as I'd hoped. It is constructed well, and it works, (i.e. no battery compartment issues or visible flaws) So far, the timer also works. I find it particularly unappealing when unlit. I can't recommend it b/c too many purchasers have received a defective sphere.
Rated 5 out of 5 by B411 Beautiful blue glow
We purchased the one with the Santa Claus flying through the night sky. It was absolutely stunning with it's beautiful blue glow. I would highly recommend this globe, would be wonderful as a night light in a child's room as well.

I received this sphere during the Christmas in July show. I put it in the closet for now and was excited to know that only in a couple of months I could put it out. I saw the reviews on it and was worried that it may not work so I took it out today and put the batteries in it.
It lighted immediately with no problem and looked lovely. I'm extremely happy with it.

Get a washer from hardware store. It should fit on the top minus side of the battery. I had to use two of them. It works now.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Muggzy1 Nativity Glowing Sphere
I collect Nativity scenes and was so excited to receive my Nativity Sphere, but after putting 2 completely new sets of batteries in and it still wouldn't light up, I was really disappointed! I called QVC customer service - they were very nice and offered a refund, but no troubleshooting tips. So I researched further and saw that many others were having the exact same difficulties... I tried adjusting the "contacts" in the battery compartment as one suggested - yet still no luck... so took it to a local Battery Plus store and the guy was so helpful, tried different batteries, then adjusted the "contacts" in the compartment further and VOILA!!!! That was the problem - I had not adjusted the "contacts" out far enough to touch the battery positives (you need to be very careful not to break them).... SOOOO glad I didn't just send it back, as it truly is serenely beautiful! Hope Plow & Hearth will correct the problem! I gave 3 star rating as I LOVE it, but had such a terrible time just getting it to work properly.
