Department 56® Holidays, Special days, Every Day
Explore Department 56®. We know the importance of celebrating life’s extraordinary moments. From our villages and Snowbabies™ figurines, to our special collections and holiday décor, you’ll find unprecedented designs of the highest quality.
Our lighted buildings and accessories are thoughtfully created using hand craftmanship and artistry every step of the way. In fact, it takes over 60 individual steps to develop each product we introduce into our villages!
Our talented team of sculpters create a three dimensional was sculpt using skilled artistry, resulting in an incredibe level of detail. The sculpt is done in several pieces, each of which have to fit together like a three dimensional puzzle.
Each piece is molded by hand, with several different molds needed for the different parts that make up a bulding or accessory. We only use each mold for a very limited number of times to maintain the highest level of architectural detail.
Each building and accessory is painted by hand according to the artists' directions.
