The REAL Polar Express Bell.

Remember the First Gift of Christmas? The Polar Express Bell?

Well, we know you do, because we’re getting LOADS of people searching for one for themselves. We first featured the official Polar Express Bell ten years ago – and every year we get a rash of people searching for one.

Because there is just ONE official Polar Express bell, which is genuinely a bee-yoo-tiful Sleigh Bell.
JUST like the ‘First Gift of Christmas’.

We were actually sent the bell to review, all those years ago, and I can honestly say that it is truly wonderful, exactly what you imagine would come straight off Father Christmas’ sleigh.

It has become one of our much-loved traditions – we always watch Polar Express on Christmas Eve, and when it’s finished and we get up to go and fetch the stockings, there the bell will be, magically appearing on the sofa.

This is not an “ornament” – it is an authentic, heirloom-quality sleigh bell and only available from Magical Bells. It is not mass produced by machinery. It is carefully handcrafted, with minimal hand tools, by second generation artisans. Brass-cast and then chrome plated (so it will not rust or peel), it will last as a cherished heirloom that can be passed down to future generations.

And yes – it rings beautifully!

It measures 2″ wide x 2″ tall, and weighs a substantial 3.1 ounces (the exact weight of 2 golf balls). It even comes with a soft brown leather reindeer harness attached!

The bell is roughly £24 plus the postage – and if you want one to sprinkle some magic on your own Christmas Eve then you’ll need to get ordering soon as they’re only available from Magical Bells in the US.
Do think about it – of Polar Express is part of your Christmas traditions, this beautiful is worth every penny.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
