The Christmas window display was unveiled to the delight of city dwellers for the first time in 1949.

For many children, one of the highlights during the long wait for Christmas is Stockmann’s fairy tale window display that is unveiled at the opening of the traditional Christmas Street. Everyone is anxiously waiting to see what kind of world will be displayed in the window this year and what characters it will feature.

Stockmann’s fairy tale window is special because of its moving characters and the interactive action buttons on the window, which can be pushed to change the action in the display. For example, the lights of a house can be lit. The skillfully designed window displays are a delight for the whole family.
