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
Race Car

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.

Rhaposdy in Blue
Cheshire Cat
Sneezy and Dopey
Robin Hood
Humphrey the Bear
Winnie the Pooh
