Anna Joins the Hallmark Ornament Family

Last year, Hallmark released two ornaments to capitalize on the Frozen mania sweeping the country.  Naturally, they focused on the two most popular characters for those initial offerings.  This year, with a little more time to plan, they added a third, Princess Anna.  And in her ornament debut, Anna is wonderful.

Anna is featured in her traveling clothes, and they are brightly colored in red and blue.  She’s looking back over her shoulder and smiling as she walks away.  It’s a cute and fun pose, and any fan of this character will love it.

Of course, the downside of the pose is that, with Anna walking, there is no way you can set this ornament out to be displayed.  There is just no base since only one foot is flat and it’s not enough to support and balance the ornament.  You must hang it from something.  Fortunately, the ornament hangs straight, so it’s not really an issue.

Elsa and Olaf were certainly the star characters of the movie, and I get that, but I really liked Anna as well since she is such a strong character.  Yet, this ornament shows the teasing side of her as well.  The smile on her face perfectly captures her personality, and you can’t help but love the ornament.

The details on the ornament are great as well.  You can see flowers on her dress, although they are a little dark, so they can be harder to see.  Her cloak’s intricate pattern is captured as well.  These are details from the film, and it’s great to see them here.

So if you like Frozen, don’t hesitate to add Princess Anna to your collection.  It will be hard to top this ornament for the character.

Original Price: $14.95
