Fisher Price….A Trip Down Memory Lane

Growing up, I have many fond memories of Fisher Price toys. Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments has been turning those fond memories into ornaments for us to relive those wonderful childhood memories during the holiday season.

The First to Start the Series….

In 2007, Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments started the Fisher Price series with toys from years ago. The first in the series is the See N Say. A childhood classic toy, the See N Say, made by Fisher Price is a 2007 Hallmark Keepsake ornament. Pull on the string and hear the authentic sounds of education.


The Barn with all the Animals….

I will never forget when you opened the barn door on the farm and it would make a mooing sound. The Play Family Farm does the same! This 2008, Hallmark Keepsake ornament, Play Family Farm, is the classic toy that displays sounds on a farm. Open the barn door on this Hallmark Keepsake ornament and see what animal sound you hear.


The Newest Addition to the Series….

The newest Fisher Price Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is the Change-a-Tune Piano. Rotate the knob to hear one of three classic tunes.


The Feature Pictured Ornament….

The 2011 Little People Lil Movers Fire Truck, is what is the featured picture for this blog entry.



 Two of my Personal Favorites….

From the Hallmark Fisher Price Ornament series, my two favorites are the 2009 Chatter Telephone and the 2009 School Bus.

2009chattertelephone.jpg    2009_school_bus_fisher_pric.jpg

A miniature version of the 1960’s classic Fisher Price toy, the Chatter Telephone has all of the bright color and the wheels move like that original one. The School Bus has the wheels that move and the bus driver and people inside.

What are everyone’s big plans for the weekend? We have Aiden the Elf’s birthday party Saturday that we are all looking forward to. I think we will finish up with the Christmas decorations and get up the last of the trees. Of course we will have some work to do because an elf’s work is never done. It is a good thing we love what we do!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Do not forget to check The Ornament Factory out on our other social media. We are on Facebook,Twitter , and Instagram!

The Timeless Disney Classic….Beauty and the Beast

All of the elves and I sure do like to watch Disney movies. We all have had a time where we are hooked on different Disney movies. Right now Jack the Elf is watching all of the Cars movies and Finding Nemo all day everyday. He will probably be writing blogs on those in the future. One of my favorites is Beauty and the Beast. I love Belles dress and the beautiful red rose.

The timeless Disney Classic, Beauty and the Beast, takes you on an emotional ride of love and the time old story of good verses evil. Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments has captured some of the most memorable parts of the movies in ornaments for all to decorate their Christmas trees with. Which one will you have on your tree this year?

Tale as old as Time….

The 2017 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, Tale as Old as Time, shows Belle and the Beast lovingly looking at the beautiful, magical, red rose. Press the button on the ornament to see the rose illuminate and hear music from “Beauty And The Beast”!


The New 2018 Beauty and the Beast Ornament….

This 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, Christmas Belle, is porcelain and a Premium Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, and it comes in premium packaging. Belle is holding a stunning red rose in glass similar to the one in the movie that loses its petals over time.


Beautiful Belle….

All Eyes on Belle comes from the 2014 Hallmark Keepsake release of ornaments. Belle is radiant in her bright yellow dress with a red jacket and looks ready for Christmas.


Belle’s Grand Entrance

Belle’s Grand Entrance is from 2006. This Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is made from yellow fabric. The ornament depicts Belle gliding down a staircase carrying a iconic red rose.

Celebrating 25 Years….

A New 2018 Hallmark Ornament to add to your Collection….

 Be Our Guest is one of the new 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that shows us Lumiere from the movie Beauty and the Beast. He is performing to the song “Be Our Guest.”


There are so many amazing Beauty and the Beast Hallmark Ornaments from over the years. You are sure to find one (or more) that you would like to add to your Christmas tree this holiday season.

For today we have lots to do at The Ornament Factory which is always fun. It is also Tuesday, so you  know what that means!!! Taco Tuesday!! We will be having tacos for dinner tonight. We all love tacos! I hope you all have a great day!

The Beauty of Birds…..

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! The elves and I had a great weekend and enjoyed a lot of yummy food! We were able to get some more decorating done too. Jack the elf has been busy with the outside lights. Elves, Brandon, Big Daniel, and Aiden have been hard at work doing some of the inside decorating getting the big tree up and lights on it. It takes some time but it looks amazing when they are done. Ben and Nathan have been busy shopping. This time of year is always magical!

I have always enjoyed looking outside and seeing the different birds. The more colorful the better. Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments has a special collection of just birds called Beauty of Birds. This series celebrates many different types of birds for the holidays.

The Start of Beauty of Birds….

The Beauty of Birds series started in 2005 with the Northern Cardinal, Beauty of Birds #1. The stunning Cardinal would look beautiful on any tree!



As the Years Went on….

The 2015 Western Tanager, Beauty of Birds #11 is another beautiful bird in the series. Looking spectacular with his red and gold plumes, the Western Tanager is the 11th in the Beauty of Birds series. Add him to your collection and you can almost hear him singing in the pinewood tree.


Cedar Waxwing, Beauty of Birds #9 was introduced in 2013. Love the beauty of backyard birds? This year’s addition to the Beauty of Birds series features an artistically crafted cedar waxwing. He’s proudly perched on a twig of mistletoe, which just might become this berry eater’s next meal.


The last of the series I would like to share is Pine Grosbeak. This Hallmark Keepsake Ornament joined the series in 2016 and is 12th in the series. Holding a twig a berries to share this beauty has vibrant colors to make it stand out.


You could make an entire tree out of this Hallmark Keepsake series. If you have a bird lover in your family or friends these would make a great Christmas gift. I have seen some people that have smaller trees decorated with some of the Beauty of Birds Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments too.

Back to work I go! Lots to do here at The Ornaments Factory! I am looking forward to later when I can go home and get some more decorating done. I have some great ideas for more lights. You can never have enough Christmas lights.

Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Shop for Your 2018 Hallmark Ornaments


Brrrrrr, it is cold outside! As the cool air starts to make its way around the United States, people are beginning to feel the holiday sprite. If you want to get a jump on your holiday shopping, now is the time. The good news is that you can buy Hallmark ornaments year-round. In fact, you can collect them from the first day of the year to the last, both in the store and online. However, the perfect time to shop for your Hallmark Ornaments is right now! Why, you ask? The answer is because there are some of the hard to find or limited edition Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments still in stock and you do not want to miss out!

Why You Should Hurry

Special and limited edition ornaments usually sell quick and become harder and harder to find closer to Christmas. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that the really popular Hallmark Keepsake lines sell out fast.

What Are the Hottest New Hallmark Ornament Releases for 2018?

There were over 125 new Hallmark ornaments released at the beginning of this month. Showcased at their annual debut, some of the most beloved characters were added to the Hallmark ornament collection.

The new “A Charlie Brown Christmas” storyteller ornaments bring back nostalgia for anyone who is a collector of the Peanuts series, Charlie Brown fan, while “The Blushing Bride Tasmanian She-Devil” will delight those who are fans of Looney Tunes.

Family traditions are always special around the holidays. We have a tradition of watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade every year. I always get excited at the end when Santa shows up. It is always nice to see the big guy. We also have the tradition of putting up more Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. Hopefully it will not be too cold outside.

The BIG question about Harley Davidson and The Grinch.

Hello fellow Hallmark Keepsake Ornament fans! All of the elves here at The Ornament Factory have been receiving many questions about two of the well loved Hallmark Ornament series. I am here to set the record straight on them.

The BIG Question….

The question we have been asked a lot lately is why is there no new 2018 Harley Davidson or Grinch Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments? This is a good question from fans of those two series.

The Answer….

Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments no longer has the licensing agreement for Harley Davidson and The Grinch. The 2017 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments for these two well loved series were the last.

There is Hope….

These two series could still return. Back in 2012 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments had this very thing happen with Mattel and had to stop making a popular series, Barbie, among others. In 2015 the beloved Barbie series came back as Hallmark was able to get the licensing agreement back. Barbie even did something cute with one of the 2015 ornaments. They did the Celebration Barbie from the two years that were missed. These were the 2013 and 2014 Celebration Barbie Ornament Set and the 2013 and 2014 Celebration Barbie Ornament set (African American).

You Can Still Order….

All of the previous years Hallmark Ornaments from the Harley Davidson series and The Grinch series are still available! You can still order them from The Ornament Factory.

A Few of the Harley Davidson Ornaments….

The 1999 Electra-Glide continues the evolution of this classic touring motorcycle. The Electra-Glide name became part of the Harley-Davidson legend when an electric starter was added to the Panhead motor in 1965. The Panhead gave way to the Shovelhead (1966) and Evo (1984). This series will feature a selection of motorcycles from Harley-Davidson’s 96-year history. Add the1999 Electra-Glide, Mini Harley-Davidson #1 to your collection today.



The next Harley Davidson Hallmark Ornament for you to see is the 2003 100th Anniv. Ed. Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Since its introduction in 1965, the mighty Electra Glide has reigned supreme as the King of the Highway. For the 100th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson, the 2003 Ultra Classic Electra Glide takes touring comfort to new levels with its powerful Twin Cam 88 V-twin engine mated to a smooth 5-speed transmission. The Ultra features electronic cruise control, front and rear speakers, fairing and lowers, CB, intercom for rider and passenger, and spacious saddlebags and Tour Pak. With its striking Black and Sterling Silver paint, special anniversary badges, and gold cast wheels, the 2003 Ultra Classic Electra Glide ranks easily as one of the most beautiful motorcycles on the road.


The last Harley Davidson Hallmark Ornament for you to see in this blog is the 2000 Fat Boy, Harley Davidson #2. The Fat Boy was introduced in 1990, styled in a monochromatic silver/gray with contrasting, sparse yellow highlights. Its Evolution engine, narrowed front fenders, and custom air cleaner make it the ultimate Factory Custom in the Softail family line.


A Couple of the Grinch Ornaments we have in Stock….

The Grinch has been a well loved Hallmark Ornament series. Here are a few of the Hallmark Ornaments we currently have in stock.

We will start with the 1998 The Grinch. This 1998 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament features the Dr. Suess character, “The Grinch.” This Hallmark ornament in the first Grinch ornament produced by Hallmark. Don’t forget his dog, Max, who the Grinch is holding in his arms, in this Hallmark Christmas ornament.


Another well loved The Grinch Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is the 2003 The Grinch and Cindy-Lou Who. The Grinch dressed as Santa with Cindy Lou Who makes up this 2003 Hallmark Keepsake ornament. There are two separate ornaments to help recreate the last part of the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas.


The last Hallmark Ornament for The Grinch series I will be sharing today is the 2008 A Smile Most Unpleasant.  The Grinch is stealing Christmas in the Hallmark Keepsake ornament.


As sad as all of the elves are that these two series are not continuing, we are very thankful for the past Hallmark Ornaments we have of them and are hopeful to see them come back. There is always hope that these series will return in the future. Do not forget, you can still order the past years ornaments for both of these series at The Ornament Factory


Stay warm!

For All of Kitten Lovers, Here is Mischievous Kittens

A few weeks ago I did a blog on the Hallmark Keepsake series, Puppy Love. Just to balance it out here is the series from Hallmark Ornaments for the kitten lovers, Mischievous Kittens. The series started back in 1999 and has continued every year since.

Where it all started….

First in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Ornament Series is Mischievous Kittens #1. This is a hard to find ornament. This 1999 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament features a very playful kitten who seems to want a goldfish as a friend.


As the years went on….

What a super Christmas toy this little kitten’s found-Before he even touches it,
it starts to roll around! Third in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Ornament Series, 2001 Mischievous Kittens #3 would be a great addition to your Christmas tree.


Twas the night before Christmas,and Kitty was stirring, lapping up milk and happily purring, when, what to her mischievous eyes did appear, but Santa himself who smiled through his beard. I believe that’s my milk he said with a pat, but you’re welcome to it, you have been such a good cat. #10 in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series.


The 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Mischievous Kitten#20….

Mischievous Kitten #20 from the popular Mischievous Kitten series was first released in July of 2018. This has  a playful kitten sitting in a red box adorned with white snowflakes, playing and getting tangled in the lights and garland. This is a must have to the kitten lover in your life.


Are you a dog lover or a cat lover. That seems to a debate that comes up when we talk about the Hallmark Puppy Love Series and the Mischievous Kitten series. Leave us a comment with which is your favorite and why. I know Jack the Elf and I are big puppy lovers.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment. It is never too early to start buying your Hallmark Keepsake ornaments for you and your loved ones. Go to The Ornament Factory websites and have fun shopping!
