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.

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 http://www.hallmarkornaments.com

 

Stay warm!
