The world of Snowbabies bisque figurines began in 1986 when the first model was introduced by Department 56. Ten years later in 1997 the Snowbabies Friendship Club was launched.

Department 56 itself was founded in 1976 and In 2005 after purchasing Lenox from Brown-Forman, the company changed their name to Lenox Group. It is most famous for its lighted porcelain houses.

Snowbabies artist Kristi Jensen Pierro freelanced for Dept 56 until 1987 when she was hired as a full-time illustrator/designer - one of her first projects was to develop the newly created Snowbabies series.

Kristi's ideas for Snowbabies are then sent to the sculptor who model the three-dimensional prototype to the exact specifications of her artwork.
