Index: Hallmark Series Ornaments

Outside of the pop culture ornaments I buy from Hallmark, I have a weakness for their series ornaments.  In fact, series ornaments make up much of what I buy.  Here are my reviews of Hallmark's series, both pop culture and more Christmasy offerings.

Advance to Go
This three piece miniature ornament series features tokens from the board game Monopoly.
Sack of Money

Art of Disney Animation
Actually, this is a Disney Store limited series.  Released over 12 months, each ornament highlights different moments in Disney animation, some well known, some rarer.

Phil
Rhaposdy in Blue
Cheshire Cat
Olaf
Sneezy and Dopey
Robin Hood
Humphrey the Bear
Louis
Winnie the Pooh
Lady and the Tramp
Cinderella

Candlelight Services
This series features churches of various styles.  You could stick a light in the back and watch the windows light up.  While officially retired in 2009, I'm included an unofficial series of church ornaments here that are similar in style that I consider unofficial compliments.
