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

Things here at The Ornament Factory are busy getting ready for the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premier coming up! Have you had a chance to look at all of the 2019 Ornaments coming out? You can look here.

Classic Turtle Sandbox….

This is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament – not the actual Turtle Sandbox that you put in your backyard.

Making hand-prints in the sandbox brings memories of warm summer days.  The Little Tikes Turtle Sandbox is full of sandbox shovels and toys along with a set of hand-prints. The artist for this Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is Rodney Gentry.qxi2653.jpg

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!

Dreaming of the Beach

With all of the crazy winter weather we have been having here all of the elves are dreaming of the beach! Just the thought of warmer temperatures and playing in the water helps us get though the cold weather and snow. Where is your favorite beach to vacation at?

Minnie has a Ball….

Minnie is all set for a fun day at the beach with her friends. Minnie is dressed in a cute pink bikini with her signature pink bow and matching sandals that have a pink flower on each. The colorful beach ball is a great addition and something fun to play with.



Sunshine Memories….

A speck of sand
between the toes,
the splashing waves,
a sun-kissed nose,
each memory of
that beach-time fun
will warm a heart
like summer fun!

Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments … the perfect way to capture memories, big and small!



A Little Crab Cake….

What do you get when you set a sweet-faced crustacean, straight from the beach, atop a delicious dessert? A crab cake, of course. Mark a year of sweet milestones with a new Keepsake Cupcake available each month. Collect all 12, get the 13th free: a true baker’s dozen.


A Day At The Beach….

A comfy chair on the beach is what many people dream of. The drink with the umbrella in it just makes it perfect!


All of the elves have now started vacation plans to the beach. We would love to hear from you where the best places are to vacation. We will need a pretty big place to stay with everyone from The Ornament Factory going. Jack the Elf has already started to plan the menu for the week. While you wait for those summer beach vacations you can work on your summer tree and check out these Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments and more at http://www.hallmarkornaments.com .

Have a great day!
