""I wondered just how the "snow" in a waterless snow globe would look. I thought it must be real light, floating particles of plastic of some kind so I took a chance and ordered all three. Well, one was totally broken--the little house was loose and clunging around in the broken shards of the glass jar. The other two were unbroken but the "snow" seems to be fine sand or ground glass. Being heavy, the fake snow doesn't float at all and falls quickly to the top/bottom, like salt inside a shaker. They are not at all what I would consider a "snow globe." Maybe they should rename them to "Snow Scene Jars."
While the idea may be charming for a kid's project--using canning jars and white sand with figures glued to the lids--they certainly are not worthy of gift-giving from an adult to an adult. Even kids would know that one is supposed to add water to a snow globe. I feel very foolish and disappointed for even giving them a try.""
