Chickadees just might be the cutest little birds around. One of our favorites, they flit about and seem to bring smiles and cheer wherever they go. Nothing brightens up a winter day as much as the sight of this small bird settling on a branch outside your window. Keep your globe out of direct sunlight. Sunlight shining through the water is a magnifier and can cause a fire. Sunlight can also cause the water to discolor. Dust with a soft cloth. Glass cleaner is fine on the globe. CoolSnowGlobes are made of glass and are not toys for children.
