The Snowman was first introduced to audiences in the form of an iconic, award winning picture book by Raymond Briggs in 1979. The first short film version of it was made for television in 1982 for Channel 4, before then being extended into a longer form. The short animated film featured the now famous song 'Walking in the Air', which was covered by Aled Jones as a young chorister three years later, with the song making it to the top 5.
The magic of Christmas
The Snowman encapsulates the magic of Christmas. Even though the original Raymond Briggs story did not feature the Christmas element, its focus on the magic and the dreamlike occurrence of a snowman coming to life has something of the Christmas spirit about it. This was then harnessed in the later screen adaptations. In Raymond Briggs' story, the snowman melts the next morning. But with these wonderful soft toys, you and your kids can have eternal fun with these lovely snowman characters as they are made to last!
