Kristi Jensen Pierro’s adorable collection was inspired by her own childhood experiences. Hold special moments shared with loved ones close to your heart forever with Snowbabies™ figurines and hanging ornaments.

These charming, hand-painted porcelain bisque Snowbabies offer countless opportunities to celebrate love, friendship, inspiration and life’s memorable moments. With exciting new colours, textures and features on offer we see this enchanting collection grow from strength to strength, making it easy to express sentiments of love, friendship, gratitude and support.

Snowbabies can sled, make snowballs, ride polar bears and frolic with their animal friends. Since their introduction, Snowbabies have enchanted collectors around the country and have brightened the imagination in all of us who celebrate the gentle play of youthful innocence. Her drawings are sent to a sculptor, and along the way she adds little touches that make each Snowbaby unique. Snowbabies will immortalize every occasion shared by you and your loved ones, and those moments we all want to hold close to our hearts forever.

Who could possibly resist ‘Glamping’ or ‘Seeking Adventure’ with one of Kristi’s new Snowbabies? The new additions for 2016 continue to celebrate the playfully innocent antics of childhood… Three of the most cherished Snowbabies have been given a modern makeover too — take a look at ‘Kristi’s Classics’ — a celebration of the rich history and evolution of this popular collection.
