Kringle Express Set of 5 Illuminated Glass Ornaments with Gift Boxes
Great but please check before Christmas!
I ordered two sets of these last year when they were in Christmas for July. I did not check them when I ordered them, so in December when I got them out for gifts there were many that the glass was broken. I was devastated. So please check if you order these early. They make great gifts for teachers!
NOT a good purchase
QVC offered a similar item in 2012 and this item in 2013. The ornaments in 2012 exceeded the quality of this item. The differences between 2012 vs. 2013 are 1) the glass was not as thick which made the ornaments very fragile (maybe the reason so many glass balls were received broken). 2) There was a faux snow applied to the ornament. and this snow was on the battery compartment and switches. Operating the switches was very difficult and resulted in broken switches. 3) The battery life was only two to three days for me. I discovered the poor quality of the ornaments after I had gifted one of these to a neighbor. :(
Beautiful, But Broken
I made the mistake of not checking these when they arrived. Then, when I went to wrap them to give as gifts very close to Christmas, I found on three of the five, the glass was broken. It was too late to send them back for replacement for Christmas gifs at that point. The ones that were intact were very beautiful, though.
Make wonderful gifts
This was my third order. Everyone that I give one to wants to know where I get them.
They are wonderful gifts for young or old. What a wonderful way to say Merry Christmas .
Great Got Both Sets
Last year I purchased both sets! They are amazing! As a family we get 1 ornament every year. WE chose one of the traditional for us and gave the rest as gifts. I did the same thing with the Angels. They light up beautifully!!!!!
I ordered three sets last year (1 angel choir/2 xmas icons). Had to send one set back due to one xmas icon did not light up...it was replaced with no problems. I used them as Xmas gifts for the ladies I play cards with, hair stylist and neighbors. They loved them!
I had one Angel left and gave it to my daughter who was in the hospital with cancer. She kept it on her food tray all the time. It now sits on my sideboard in front of her picture and it lights up every evening at 8 pm. These are lovely gifts!! Thanks!!!!
Bought 2 sets for office gifts. Where are u going to get something so pretty, in a very nice box and gift card, batteries and Extra batteries for about 5 bucks each? Everyone loved them and appreciated those extra batteries. I was so happy I had some left for myself. Just beautiful and very long lasting batteries!! I never do reviews but these are just such a great deal I wanted to share.
I purchased these after I was given one as a gift... They are cute as a button and they stay lite for a long time... Now I have some of my Thanksgiving gifts to give out this coming year... Also saved one for my self.... They are great...
Received one of these as a gift, then ordered a set for myself, some to keep, some for gifts. Pretty even when not lit up, box presentation is also nice. Beautiful when lit, nice to have extra batteries, but original battery life seems reasonable.
Nice Ornaments But...
I ordered a set of these Angel ornaments (very pretty) for Christmas gifts. Upon delivery, I checked each one of these to make sure they worked (since some reviews were negative). The first one I checked had a loose switch, had to play a little with it to work, so had to keep that one for myself. The others turned on and seemed fine. After giving the rest for gifts, the following day one of the recipients called and said that after trying to replace the batteries that didn't last, the insides of the ornament, the Angel, fell apart. There was no way to open it and fix it. I don't know if the other three ornaments had any problems as I did know hear from the other recipients. I did call customer service, the rep was very understanding, felt bad that this happened and credited my account for two of the ornaments. So, I would say, if you want to purchase these, inspect them and hope that they last awhile.
Not to be missed!
If you are a collector, these will not disappoint!
I wasted my money !
For the first time since you begin some 27 ? years ago I wish I could have sent these back. never returned one thing, but these were awful ! They worked for a day, and I gave one to my grandkids and theirs never worked either. I didn't have the heart to ask for it back, but I'm glad I didn't give in others away for gifts. What happened QVC ? was like throwing my money down the commode....
