I added this to the setup.js and it works:

Object.defineProperty(global, 'Node', {
  value: {firstElementChild: 'firstElementChild'}

Mocking the library is a solution if that’s ok to you.

//  smooth-dnd.js or vue-smooth-dnd.js inside __mocks__ folder

module.exports = {
  // some mock implementation

Solves the problem and as a plus we don’t mess with the environment.
