From 2002 through 2004 MINI USA sold collectible snowglobes as part of their MotoringGear collection. They were limited editions and there was a different one each year.
Shown is the MINI Snowglobe 2004. It features an Electric Blue MINI.
Once these snowglobes sold out, they could often be found for sale on MINI forums or eBay for upwards of $100 or more.
