Department 56 ornaments can often be overlooked in favor of their old-fashioned villages. However, these Christmas tree ornaments are created with the same care and attention to detail that is poured into each of their miniature houses. Among their recent best-sellers is the Snowbabies collection.

Adorable and accurate depictions of children experiencing the wonder of Christmas are yours with each of the Snowbabies. These unique collectibles showcase the talent of Kristi Jensen Pierro, who derives inspiration from all children everywhere. She remembers what it was like to grow up and experience the joy of Christmas for the first time, and has translated that rapturous enthusiasm into a successful career as an artist.

Snowbabies and Other Department 56 Ornaments

Each of the Snowbabies is crafted from luminous porcelain, based on an original design by Kristi Jensen Pierro. The children are depicted in various activities such as knitting, Christmas shopping, dancing, cooking, and singing. Whatever your favorite hobby, you will find a tasteful representation of it within this collection.

If your style is more city than country, you will enjoy the series of Department 56 ornaments called Christmas Glitz. The collection consists of tasteful decorations laced with a pinch of sass, a touch of class, and a spritz of glitz. Reminiscent of Shiny Brite ornaments from the 1940s, Christmas Glitz will infuse a sense of glamour in any tree.
