In 1982 the Snowman animation was first shown on television, it captured peoples hearts with the story of a snowman coming to life and taking the boy who built him to the North Pole to meet Santa and we all remember the beautiful song `Walking in the air’ as they fly through the night sky.

Snowman History

One of the most iconic snowman films is “The Snowman,” a beloved animated short film based on the children’s picture book by Raymond Briggs. It was first released in 1982 and has since become a holiday classic. The film follows the heartwarming story of a young boy who builds a snowman that comes to life at midnight. Together, they embark on a magical adventure, flying through the night sky to the North Pole. The film is renowned for its beautiful hand-drawn animation, accompanied by the hauntingly beautiful song “Walking in the Air.”

Over the years, “The Snowman” has become a holiday tradition for many families, and its popularity has led to several spin-offs and adaptations, including a sequel called “The Snowman and the Snowdog,” released in 2012.

At World of Bears, we have a selection of Toys and Collectibles from Rainbow Designs and Steiff.

Love this shark. I'm a real sealife kinda girl, and this shark has the cutest little smile. Makes you want to go swimming in the ocean more often.
