Sorry for posting in AIBU but I need the traffic. Today at a friends house my DD age 2 knocked over and broke a snowglobe which had huge sentimental value to it's owner (my friend). She is devastated and I feel awful. I have been hunting high and low for a replacement but so far have had no luck sad

I was hoping the collective power of mumsnet could help me to track it down so I can cheer up a rather upset lady and relieve myself of my guilt.

Have attached a photo of the broken one, does anyone recognise it at all?

That looks like the Card Factory bear doesn't it?

Maybe check their site/email them the photo?

I agree that it looks like a Card Factory bear.

Once all of the teacher stuff is off the shelves they'll have regular stick back in.

Well a replacement won;t be the "same" will it? Or is that me being over fussy?

No it won't be the same but it's the best I can do really. Will check card factory now, knew it wasn't tatty teddy like OH keeps saying.

what does the plaque the bears holding say?

It says 'Best Mum' so really isn't going to be back in stock until Mothers Day.

Sorry sad

There are lots of companies that say they repair snow globes if only the glass is broken.

I thought the same about Mother's Day. Have emailed card factory to ask if they can sell me one now I've established where it is from, fingers crossed!

Where are these snowglobe repair companies? It is only the glass that is broken but all repair companies I found were in the US.

They do all seem to be in the US. There's an eHow on how to do it yourself, but that seems a bit extreme.

Have you tried a jewellery store? Like those who repair musical boxes? Apparently they might be able to help. Or glass repair specialists. They usually only advertise crystal glasses etc but they might be able to help.
