When Barbie Made Her Comeback

Barbie has always been a popular Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series. In 2012 Hallmark lost the licensing agreement with Mattel and had to stop  making the Barbie Hallmark Ornaments. 2012 was going to be the last year Hallmark Ornaments would make Barbie. It wasn’t just the Barbie Ornaments that they had to stop making, they had to stop other popular series like Hot Wheels, Fisher Price, and G.I. Joe. Thankfully an agreement was made and all of these started back in 2015. Since coming back many of the old series of Barbie Keepsake Ornaments have continued.

The Come Back….

In 2015, when Hallmark Ornaments was able to start making ornaments after Mattel toys, they came back with 2013 and 2014 Celebration Barbie Ornament Set. Inspired by the 2013 and 2014 Holiday Barbie dolls, this Keepsake Ornament set is a must-have for collectors of all ages and the perfect way to celebrate the Barbie tradition of fabulous holiday fashions

Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments – Barbie Collection – A Memoir

Ever since I can remember my entire family has always had a Christmas tree that is filled with Hallmark ornaments.  The tree was always special because of the variety of ornaments and each meant something special to someone in my family.  I had two brothers and two sisters so Christmas was always exciting for the family.   As part of our tradition, we would always get the daughter and son ornaments as well as the an ornament from a series that was our own collection.  My collection is the Barbie Hallmark ornament series.

Each year, I look forward to seeing what the new ornament will be there are always favorites and each year you compare it to the last.  The ornaments from Hallmark are a tradition in my family and is a tradition that will be carried on with my family of my own someday and I can’t wait to put my new barbie ornament on the tree this year.

Barbie Debut 1994

Barbie Debut 1994

One of my favorites is the first ornament in the series.  This classic Barbie dressed in her black and white striped swimsuit was released in 1994 and became the first of many in the collection.  This was one of my first ornaments that I was given.

I remember hanging her up for the first time – her golden hair shined underneath the yellow lights.  I put her next to my brother’s Babe Ruth ornament.   I loved her so much that the next year, I asked for her brunette sister.

Holiday Barbie 2000

Holiday Barbie 2000

My second favorite Barbie ornament I got a few years later in 2000.  She was dressed in a flowing metallic silver dress that gleamed in the Christmas lights.  Her blonde hair was soft and I’d always brush it perfectly before I hung her up.  My younger sister was always so jealous of this ornament and I’d always catch her playing with it on Christmas Eve.

My memories of Hallmark’s Christmas Barbie ornaments will always have a treasured spot in my heart.  The entire Barbie Hallmark series brought me so much happiness each year.  I can’t wait till I have daughters of my own and I can pass these keepsakes on to them and tell them stories about each of them.  I can only hope that they will take as much joy in hanging each one carefully on the tree as I did when I was a little girl.
