Anyone Collected Disney Hallmark Ornaments

A couple years back, I started collecting Hallmark ornaments. I collect any I like, but their Disney ornaments seem to come home with me quite frequently. Anyone else collect them?

I do, if I see any cute looking ones I snatch them up. Hallmark already has their ornaments in store and I bought two so far. Didn't seen any Disney ones I really really wanted. I was debating on the Eeyore one I'll think on it, and I might get it as it gets closer to Christmas. Now that I finally broke down and bought a fake tree for the holidays, I've been buying more ornaments.

I'm trying to get a variety of Disney characters and something for every Pixar movie, so Merida came home with me. And I love the Grumpy/Dopey ornament and I collect all three Disney and Disney/Pixar series.... (I also collect Peanuts and just any ornament I like.)

Yeah, I have a serious Hallmark ornament problem to go with my Disney pin problem.

I have been collecting the hallmark Disney ornaments, theme park ornaments for years. About 15 or more. I usually buy 2-4 hallmark ones a year. I love them.

I collect them - it's an addiction. I've been a member of the collector club for years & have more ornaments than tree branches.

I love them. I have been getting my two goddaughters Disney princess ornaments the past few years. I think so far I've given them Cinderella, Tiana, Rapunzel and this year will be Merida. I have a little collection started for my daughter too. Last year I got her a pink Minnie Mouse since that was the theme for her first birthday party. This year I got the Monsters Inc. one. I like that they are not breakable!

I collect them too! I just picked up the Precious Moments Rapunzel today. It's was the only one in the store.

Does anybody know why the Mickey's Christmas Carol series was canceled?

DW had 12 years worth...

84 Disney ornaments in total....yeah...

This being said, we love Christmas more than Disney and probably go way overboard on the decorations (we have 4 trees). Combining the 2 was dangerous for us...

Our Hallmark store told us that there wasn't one for this year at all. We were told the whole series was canceled. Which makes no sense since we always had to put our name on a wait list to get the first couple. You can't tell me that they weren't selling well.

I can't remember if our store had a Jimminy Cricket ornament.... He's not on their website.... If there is a JC one this year, going by what we were told, he's not part of the Christmas Carol series.

I bought the Jiminy ornament. He's the Ghost of Christmas Past. I'm a member of Hallmark's KOC & there was no mention of the line being cancelled. If you search online, you'll find a picture of Jiminy.

Ok, I found a picture of one on Ebay. You're right he is part of the series. I vaguely remember seeing him at Hallmark yesterday. I didn't pay much attention to him when I was there. He wasn't clearly marked as part of the Mickey's Christmas Carol series like the others have been. And I wasn't looking for anything from Mickey's Christmas Carol because it was a couple months ago that we were told the series was canceled.

I'll have to get back in there and grab him before he's gone. I also need to pick up the Winnie-the-Pooh "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament for my best friend. She and her husband just had their first child this summer.

Yes, this is terrible addicition. I collect disney ornaments in general.
I don't keep count as to how man I have as I would probably !!
My priority ones are the Disney Precious Moments ones. And then I love the motion or animated ones or the ones that have sound. I have been collecting the Hallmark ones for several years now. I can't fit all of them on one tree.
They're just so cute...how can you not buy them??

One time I came home from Disney and found that I had 43 ornaments in my suitcase. I have no idea how that happened??

I have a terrible addiction with Disney ornaments. Both Hallmark and Disney Store ones. I've already bought almost all of the 2012 Disney Store ornaments. So far I've only picked up 3 from Hallmark this year. I will be making many more trips back though.

Here are just a few of my ornaments as of last year:



This is an old photo, so it doesn't include any of my new ones. (Also there are some non Disney ones in there)
