I bought this globe several years ago intending to give it to my partner's niece who was about 5 or 6. But I liked it so much I kept it! His niece will be 16 soon so I don't suppose she'd want it now. It's different to most snow globes as it's sparkly bits that float around when shaken rather than ‘snow’. It sits in front of the pc and I give it a shake every so often. Lots of bubbles in the water and reflections of my conservatory. It's very pretty but I don't feel these shots have done it justice.
