Kiddie Cars are Back

Kiddie Car Classics will be back in Hallmark Gold Crown stores this May.

First introduced in the early 1990s, Hallmark's line of Kiddie Car Classics quickly became a successful and highly collectible venture. Two decades later, the scale replica pedal cars are cruising back into stores to anchor Hallmark Garage. Each car is individually numbered as part of a limited-run quantity and includes a collector card inside the packaging to leverage the artist story behind the product. Additionally, each design features a coordinating Keepsake ornament.

Four designs will be available in May.

Welcome Back Barbie

Hallmark and Mattel have announced a new licensing agreement that will bring Barbie back to the Hallmark Keepsake line in 2015. This new contract will allow Hallmark to create and distribute holiday ornaments and plush  products in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to Hallmark Gold Crown exclusives, some items will be offered through multiple retail channels.
Hallmark will offer two "Bonus Packs" in July that will feature the Hallmark Keepsake versions of the 2013 and 2014 Holiday Barbie dolls. (Serious Barbie collectors will want to have both the Carlton Heirloom ornaments from 2013 and 2014 in addition to the Hallmark Bonus Pack set.)
The Bonus Packs will be offered in both Caucasian and African American, as seen below.
