Hallmark Childs Age Collection
Puppies and Kittens - Bye, Bye

In 2005 Hallmark Cards introduced a new "Child's Age Collection" that featured puppies for boys and kittens for girls. These ornaments commemorated childhood milestones from Baby's First Christmas through Child's Fifth Christmas. The puppy and kitten "grew up" through the procession enjoying age appropriate activities.

In 2007 however Hallmark Cards discontinued the collection early. This was the first time in Hallmark Keepsake history that a Child's Age Collection ended early. This early ending to the collection has created lots of confusion.

The Puppies (& Kittens) Child's 2,3,4,& 5th that were offered last year WERE NOT DATED. The idea was that anyone that had that collection started for their child/grandchild could buy the rest of the child's collection last year and then present them each holiday thru the Child's 5th. Many did buy them last year and this created quite a shortage, especially of the Child's 5th Christmas. While many collectors didn't understand that 2007 would be the last chance to buy them in a Hallmark store, and thus, will find out this year.

If you have an incomplete Child's Age Collection visit Hooked on Ornaments for the largest selection of Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments available.

Batman ornaments have included the lighted 2002 Caped Crusader, simply clip your Christmas tree light to the ornament for the optional lighting effect. 2007 offered the Villain Database Hallmark Magic ornament, the computer shows different Batman villains with the push of a button.

Superman Arrives!

New for 2008 is the
Comic Book Heroes Hallmark Ornament Series. This new series will feature popular comic book heroes bursting forth from the pages of miniature comic books. Look inside for a story that you can actually read! The 2008 Comic Book Hero first in series features Superman. The ornament measures 4" High and was sculpted by Hallmark Studio Artist Robert Chad.

Superheroes are not new to Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. The first Hallmark ornament to feature a super hero was the 1993 Superman Hallmark Keepsake Ornament. Hallmark has included a comic book hero in the Keepsake line every year since. Due to requests by collectors we recently added a "Super Hero" page to our Ornaments By Series page. You can view all the ornaments in this "unofficial collection" on this new category page on our website.
