Target can’t keep these Christmas lights in stock!

These $5 string lights from Target are the must-have Christmas item of the moment. They achieved viral popularity as soon as they hit the shelves of Bullseye’s Playground, and people are losing their minds over these battery-operated string lights!

Snow Globe Lights from Target

We wanted to see them up close, but this was no easy task. They sell out almost immediately after being restocked in many locations. We were finally able to get our hands on some, and we can see why Target shoppers are loving these lights.

Each of the light bulbs on the strand is like a little snow globe with a tiny winter wonderland inside. They all contain a miniature Christmas tree and powdery white “snow.” The strands are 2.5 feet long with just six bulbs each, so no matter what you’re decorating with these lights, you’re probably going to need more than one string!

These lights are not sold online, so if you’d like to get some for yourself, you’ll have to find them in the Bullseye’s Playground section of Target, near the front of the store. You’ll need to be fast though because these are flying off the shelves!

    I’ve gone way too many times to Target and have never found them. They look so fun for Christmas

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      They sure do! Hoping you still might spot them on your next Target trip! 🤞

    • Dana

      Try going to your local Dollar Store and buying everything and make them yourselves. I have bought plane bold lights before that open up to replace the bulb in oh, so I’m sure a cheap Dollar Store will sell everything you need for these.

    Do they have a timer?

    • Donna

      No, they do not have a timer (require 2 AA batteries, not included)

    How do I check to see if my local target has them?

    • Donna

      You would have to call your store and give them the DPCI # 234-03-3537. The have a red set as well which has the same DPCI #, so make sure you tell them you are checking for the clear/warm white lights and they will probably have to physically check (and not just put the # into the computer). Hope that helps 🙂

      • alexandra

        Thank you!

      • Marie

        This really helps when you need to ask customer service to check store stock. Thanks so much Donna!!

      • Janice

        Can you please verify the DPCI? Its coming up as invalid. Thank you!

      • Moore Than Lips

        Thank you for this! Called a local store and they are holding some for me!! YAY!

    Omg I was stalking my store almost on a daily basis for weeks looking for these! I finally got a set this wknd and today I went and they actually had quite a few. I was shocked. I grabbed another set and now have what I need. Hope others that are looking are able to find them, they really are unique.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! So glad to hear you found them, MrsBK!

    • britbashammcmanus

      Can you post a photo of what they look like outside the package?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hoping you find them, Lesli!

    These are adorable! Haven’t seen them at my target.
    Speaking of target…has anyone seen a dollar spot item that is a coffee cup ornament that says “dear santa I’ll me nice after coffee” – I’ve seen pix, but don’t know if it’s Target or elsewhere since I’ve never seen it in person.

    • Shannon

      It’s from target. I got one and it’s super cute.

  7. Bzroses13

    I work at my local target and just noticed these today! Very cute!

  8. H

    I bought these last year at bed bath and beyond and Martha Stewart had them as well @ Macys I think they were 10 lights. Have also seen a similar set at zulilly under primitives by Kathy brand

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks so much for letting us know the other places you have spotted these!

  10. Marie

    I finally found the pink tinsel table top trees for $3! Love them. I have to check these lights out too. This is becoming an addiction.

  11. Stacy

    I had to go to two Targets but I found them! Thank you! They will make a great stocking stuffer for my snow globe obsessed daughter!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh perfect! Super happy you could find them for her, Stacy! You’re most welcome!

  12. Michele

    It’s because several jacka** scooped them up and now are reselling them on eBay for $20 a pop ! I just did a google search and saw lots of listings for them. I can’t stand people who do that !!! 🤬🤬

  13. Mindy

    If anyone finds these are are willing to send some to me I would appreciate it as these are on my college kids list and none near me have any – I will even send you a FED Ex to send to me

  14. KraftyKim

    Thanks Shannon! I will definitely keep checking then!

  15. Helen

    Yes thanks to this post I got the last 2!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice, Helen!

  16. Amy

    IKEA had super cute Christmas string light options this year, too!

    • Wendy

      I would love to have those lights decorating my house this year. Would anyone be able to pick up a few bags if you see them. I will pay for shipping to Canada.
      Thank you

    As a 2× housefires survivor, I always look for the UL label on electricals.
    Some Target items do not carry this..
    do these lights?

  18. Darla M selka

    How much were they and are they for sale this year?
