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.

I rarely write reviews unless an item is the best or the worst. Sadly, this an item I would tell you not to buy! The first one I bought was my favorite Santa holiday scene and it did not work. So maybe I received one that had problems. So, because I really loved it, I sent back one and ordered another. The second one came today and this one doesn't work either. Apparently others have had the same problem. I am very disappointed in QVC and Plow and Hearth for not better quality control and monitoring of this product.

Hard to star rate this one - just ordered the 3rd one and hoping this one will turn on. LOVE the idea but so disappointing when nothing happens when you flip the switch :/
Rated 1 out of 5 by Princess Slicko Big Dud.......Doesn't Work
Like many other reviewers stated it does not work. Too bad because it is really cute. Not the usual quality I am used to from Plow & Hearth. It's such a disappointment but back it goes and with all the trouble others are having I will not replace it with another one.
