Hallmark Ornaments Sold Out List

I thought we'd take a quick look today at the ornaments that have sold out at the Hallmark warehouses. These are Hallmark ornaments that retailers are no longer able to place new orders for, what's in the stores and on order are basically all there are. You probably want to consider purchasing these items right away if they are on your "wants" list.

Hooked on Ornaments does currently have all of these items in stock.

Christmas Extras

We're really excited about some of the fun things being offered by Hallmark for 2013.
These "little extras" are sure to bring smiles to your little ones (and you too!)

North Pole Communicator
From Dec 1st through Christmas your Santa fans can dial up the North Pole to hear a
message each day from some North Pole characters including Santa!

Santa's Magic Key
For those families without a chimney... we adore "Santa's Magic Key."
Through the magic of Santa, this special key opens the door to any home so Santa
can make his special Christmas deliveries.

 Merry Carolers Trio
Our snowman pal and his furry and feathered friends are here to bring a Christmas smile. The lamp lights up as the Snowman, dog and bird sing, bob and sway to a fun version of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas."

Caroling Snowmen Commemorative
2013 marks ten years of "techno plush" magic! To commemorate ten years of smiles Hallmark has re-issued the first of the "techno plush" snowmen, "Caroling Snowmen." 

There is also a plush ornament and a snowglobe depicting the original pair. 

This year's coordinating book is "Snow Time To Lose"

As always we encourage you to shop your local Hallmark Gold Crown stores. If you are unable to find items locally we do carry many of the current year items and may be able to help at www.hookedonornaments.com

A Touch of Magic

Wow, this year is flying by! The October Ornament Debut was this last weekend and I hope you enjoyed visiting your local Hallmark Gold Crown stores. Did you find everything you were looking for? There were lots of limited quantity ornaments available as well as some really great special offers.

I thought I would take a minute today to share a couple of things that are happening in the "background" at Hooked on Ornaments right now that pertain to the Hallmark Magic ornaments. My project are the new ornament "tag lines." These "extra" lines on the item names allow us to add a brief descriptor. For the Magic Ornaments we're adding a little icon that features a magic wand. The Magic Cord ornaments feature an icon with a magic cord symbol. We hope that this new feature will make these ornaments easier to find when browsing our site.

At the warehouse Sara has been working on videos for the new 2013 ornaments. These videos are one of my favorite features of the Hooked on Ornaments website. I hope that you find them useful and enjoyable as well. They take a lot of time to make. So a BIG Thank You to Sara!! Keep 'em comin'.

You know I'm gonna share one of my favorites from this year! The 2013 One Snowman Band

Happy Collecting!

October Hallmark Ornament Debut

The October Hallmark Ornament Debut is less than a month away so I thought we'd take a moment to look at the special edition ornaments that will be available during the event. As you know the event is October 5-6 at your local Hallmark Gold Crown stores this year and you won't want to miss the festivities. In addition to over 100 new ornaments, there are some special ornaments too! Let's take a look at what's in store...

2013 Wiggly Giggly Snowman
KOC Membership Exclusive
$17.95  *  3 7/8" H  *  Sue Tague
This little guy is actually a bell; his feet are the clapper. His cap reads "Snow Time Like Christmas" and "wiggles" and "giggles" are engraved on his white tummy. He appears quite happy and fun in his polka dot scarf and green cap with pom pom.

There are 6 Limited Quantity ornaments that will be available at the Debut. Remember to arrive early if you're hoping to snag one of these. The Limited Quantity ornaments usually sell out on Saturday morning.

$9.95   *   3 1/8" W  *  Sharon Visker
The details make this limited quantity ornament even more special. A decorated yule log cake is artfully displayed on a silver tray. Red capped mushrooms and a sweet little snowman complete our cake decorator's Christmas masterpiece. As the final touch powdered sugar has been sprinkled over all. Our decorator isn't quite finished with clean up though as the sugar shaker and the bowl of icing are still sitting on the tray. Can you tell that this one is a favorite!

Complements the Lionel Train series
$19.95   *   3 3/4" W
The only repaint available for purchase during the event is the PINK Lionel 2037 Steam Locomotive. The mold is from the 2013 regular line ornament, 2013 Lionel #18 2037 Steam Locomotive. Like the regular Keepsake line ornament, the repaint is hand-crafted and die-cast metal and features wheels that turn.

$17.95   *   3 3/8" W   *   Tammy Haddix
For collectors of the Visit From Santa series, this special anniversary edition ornament will be a must have. Artist Tammy Haddix has created a beautiful piece that features all the animals that have been depicted in the first five pieces in the series. I adore the result and think you will too. (I hope to see a similar piece in 2018 featuring the next five animals.)

Dopey from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
$12.95   *   2 5/8" H
You have to love Dopey. How can you not? He holds a sign that reads "Free Kisses" and based on the lip stick marks on his face it looks like Snow White helped him out. The bigger clue? That love struck look upon his face. Priceless.

Batman - The Dark Knight Trilogy
$14.95   *   4 1/2" W
Batman on his Bat-Pod is the fifth limited quantity ornament available during the Ornament Debut. Based on the vehicle from The Dark Knight Trilogy, this ornament will be big with Batman fans as well as Keepsake ornament collectors.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
$14.95   *   2 1/8" H
Gollum, from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, sits in his familiar pose. Perhaps you have his Precious? 

*         *         *         *         * 
In addition to the six limited quantity special edition ornaments there will be two register to win ornaments. So when you visit your local stores Ornament Debut weekend, hunt down that register to win box and add your name for the drawing. Each participating store should be giving away two of each ornament.

North Pole Stroll
RTW   *   2 3/8" H   *   Robert Chad

I Can Do It, Crayola Repaint
RTW   *   Orville Wilson

Guess what? There's more! That's right!
We have the new October releases, the club exclusive Wiggly Giggly Penguin, six Limited Quantity Keepake ornaments, 2 Register To Win ornaments, and there are still .... four reveal ornaments, three mystery Frosty ornaments and a number of very special offers. Let's take a quick look...

Continuing the mystery ornaments this year - Frosty, our eskimo friend, is traveling the world. You'll receive one of three designs in your Mystery Frosty box. England Frosty is dressed as a Queen's Guard and looks quite dashing I must say. Wild West Frosty is dressed as an ol' West Sheriff complete with silver badge. The third and final design won't be revealed until Ornament Debut. Where in the world do you think Frosty went?

Reveal Ornaments
The four reveal ornaments will be unveiled September 16th and will be available for purchase at the October Debut event. Have you guessed what the ornaments are?

Reveal Ornament #1
Sculpted by Julie Forsyth
$14.95   *   QXG1455
Clue #1: This ornament's star is an ornament himself, but not one you'd find on a tree or a shelf.
And like any star, he's certainly bright thanks to the token he's bring to light. 
Clue #2: He may come from a garden, but don't expect him to grow. His spirits are high, but his stature's quite low. By now you may know who we're talking about, because after all, you helped pick him out.

Reveal Ornament #2
Sculpted by Orville Wilson
$14.95   *   QXI2372
Clue #1:
Although it has antlers they're really quite small. It may not pull a sleigh, But it helps with the haul.
Nothing else runs like it, though it doesn't have feet. Nor does it have legs, but it does have a seat.
Clue #2: To some it may look like a bucket load of fun, but its a serious worker who gets the job done. It takes a smooth operator to use the real deal but as an ornament, it has universal appeal.

Reveal Ornament #3
$14.95   *   QXD6825
Clue #1: We've met him before but now we see his beginning. He's a student who's school life, has sent his head spinning. School can be daunting, but for him it's plain scary and thanks to his friends, and thanks to his friends things can sometimes get hairy.
Clue #2: This little guy's no stranger to hanging around. So a home on your tree should easily be found. His personality is monstrous, his voice crystal clear, and he's always got an eye out for holiday cheer.

Reveal Ornament #4
Sculpted by Orville Wilson
$14.95   *   QXI2385
Clue #1: It comes from a movie inspired by the pages of an adventurous tale that will last through the ages. It's an iconic, circular object of gold; that you'll treasure for as long as its story is told.

Your local Hallmark Gold Crown stores will have a number of special offers during the Ornament Debut.
