Hank and Dory: The coolest septopus and blue tang duo to ever hit the silver screen. These characters and their interactions were so much fun to watch in Finding Dory that I couldn't resist this fantastic Disney Store exclusive snowglobe (in fact, I got this for my birthday back in May before I even saw the film- I just knew it would be great). It captures their first meeting and overall adventure in the Marine Life Institute perfectly!
I'm so happy to see the Disney Store snowglobes making a comeback. They used to be commonplace with each new Disney/Pixar film, but there hasn't been a Pixar themed snowglobe release since Brave in 2012. I hope this is the start of a resurgence.
Taking a look at the outer box; it's pretty neat, showing off the globe from all angles.
Now for the unboxing. This is a wonderfully sculpted and finely detailed snowglobe. The character likenesses are spot on and the paint application is almost flawless. Though some people have claimed this is made of plastic or rubber, it's actually a coated resin material with the globe itself, of course, being glass (so yes, the entire sculpt is very breakable). I love the addition of the metal Finding Dory logo plaque on the front there as well- nice little touch.
The entire snowglobe is about six inches high with an eight inch diameter.
Part of the fun of Disney snowglobes is their features (some play music, some light up, etc.). This one includes an automated blower inside the "coffee pot" so that the glitter twirls around on its own without shaking! You can see the ON/OFF switch on the back there (requires 3 AA batteries, included).
If you're a fan of the film, you can't go wrong with this display piece for your collection. Highly recommended! See it in action in my YouTube video below:
