Summer fun Activities

The nice sunshine weather is here! Time to enjoy the great out doors and get some sun. What are some of your favorite summer activities?

Olaf in Summer….

Winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put him in the summer sun and Olaf will be a happy snowman. This Keepsake ornament is sure to delight Disney “Frozen” fans of all ages.

Olaf has gone on a walk and sees the beautiful green grass.


In the Summertime….

In the Summertime is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament that is Magic and has sound. Press the button on the ornament to hear music from Mungo Jerry’s “In the Summertime.” Summer time brings out all the boats and lazy summer weekend on the lake. What a wonderful time for family and friends to hang out.


Walking on Sunshine….

This Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is not available until October 5, 2019. You can get on the waiting list for it now if you would like.

Laying out in or by the pool is a favorite summer tradition with the warm sun. Here, the sun is enjoying some relaxing time laying out with a refreshing drink that has an umbrella in it.



Playtime in the Sun

With the weather getting warmer and being about to play outside more we are looking for fun toys. Here are some favorite Little Tikes toys that made outside play memorable! You can find all of these here at The Ornament Factory http://www.hallmarkornament.com

Baby’s First Swing….

Playground fun begins in the swing! Smiles, giggles and pigtails blowing in the wind are amazing firsts and forever memories. Little Tikes Baby’s First Swing is reclined and fully-secured to keep even the tiniest bundle of joy safe and happy. This ornament was first available during the 2015 Hallmark Premiere Event, July 11, 2015.


Cozy Coupe…

Take a jaunt down memory lane with this oldie but goodie. Little Tikes Cozy Coupe has been in driveways and on sidewalks for the past 30 years! It’s easily navigated and encourages active play, imagination and motor-skill development.

The 2015 Cozy Coupe is a miniature Hallmark Keepsake Ornament. This ornament will first be available during the 2015 Hallmark Debut Event, October 3, 2015. It is a Hallmark Gold Crown Exclusive.


Little Tikes has toys for all kids to play with. Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments have made some of our favorites into ornaments for us to enjoy. You could have a summer tree of a wreath using these Hallmark Ornaments and many more to decorate.

We all hope you can get outside and enjoy the nice weather! Have a great day!

Voting Day

Today is voting day! Get out there and exercise your right to vote. All of the elves will be out voting today. We have lots of important issues on the ballet around here. Everywhere you look there are signs in people’s yards and in front of businesses.

The Winning Ticket….

Snoopy’s on the campaign trail, his heart is filled with pride. He’s sure to win a lot of votes with Woodstock by his side. Snoopy and Woodstock are out exercising their right to vote and encouraging other to do the same.

The 1988 Uncle Sam Nutcracker Hallmark Keepsake Ornament has Uncle Sam dressed and ready to support all of the voters. When you lift Uncle Sam’s ponytail, his mouth pops open like a real nutcracker. But please don’t ask him to crack any nutshells. He’d rather add a touch of Americana to your tree instead! This Keepsake Ornament was originally produced and released by Hallmark in 1988. The artist is Donna Lee and the Hallmark Keepsake ornament is 5” tall.


America for Me!

This Keepsake Ornament features old glory with 13 stars. The artist is Julie Forsyth and it is 2¼” tall. Voting is one of the rights we have and our flag helps represent that. Here is a flag that would make a great decoration on your tree or wreath.


The elves try and get to the voting polls early so they do not have to stand in line too long. Even if it is a long line we always stay and vote because we understand how important it is. If we are a few minutes late Elliot does not mind. Check out all of the other Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments on our website http://www.hallmarkornaments.com

Rain, Rain Go Away

They always say that April showers bring May Flowers but this rain can go away. We had a really bad storm here in our area the other day that did some damage. Here are some Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that celebrate the rain.


Rainy Day Rescue….

Open the book and you will find Winnie the pooh is assisting Piglet onto a chair as he is balancing on a jar. This Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is the eighth in the Winnie the Pooh Hallmark Ornament Series.

Sound and Motion. Pull the cord below the ornament to see the umbrella move and hear music from “The Rain Rain Rain Came Down Down Down”! Battery-operated (batteries included).


Shower Season….

Poor Pluto is hiding under the purple umbrella trying to keep him and his rubber ducky warm and dry. This 2014 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is a Hallmark Gold Crown Exclusive. Shower Season is the 9th in the A Year of Disney Magic series.


We hope you all are staying warm and dry with this crazy April weather! All of the elves have tried to get outside to play as much as we can in between the raindrops. Honestly, we like to play in the rain too. Do you have flowers picked out yet for this year? We are still talking about what color scheme we want to do this year. All of the elves like to help with the flowers and clean up of the yard.

Have a wonderful day! Back to work here at The Ornament Factory!
