Snow Angel Fun

When Hallmark went big with their miniature ornaments in 2016, they tied several of them into some of their series.  Naturally, that encouraged those of us who are fans of the series to buy the ornament.  It certainly worked for me with Snow Angel Memories, and I’m glad it did.

This ornament ties in loosely to the Making Memories series.  Being a miniature ornament, it just features one of the snowpeople that the other series features, specifically, it features the snowchild.  And the child is flat on its back ready to create a snow angel.  You can help along by pulling the string on the bottom of the ornament, which makes the arms and legs go.  The child is wearing a blue hat, red scarf, and green shoes and is covered in glitter.

I called this a miniature ornament, and that’s how it is classified, but it looks just a little bigger than the rest of Hallmark’s mini line.  No, it’s not full size, and if you buy it expecting a full sized ornament, you’ll be disappointed, but it does have an extra inch over most of the other miniature ornaments.  It’s still half the size of a regular ornament, but it looks about the size of the showchild from the regular Making Memories ornaments, which makes it seem bigger to fans of the series.

Size aside, this is a fun ornament.  While the title is the only official tie in to the Making Memories series, it is easy to tell with how the snowchild looks that it ties in to the series.  And the grin on its face is certainly enough to make you smile.  The added action (rare for a mini ornament) adds to the fun, although you want a sturdy branch before you start pulling on it.  (Personally, I like to grab the hook through the top ring as well.)

You’ll definitely need to hang this ornament since there’s no way to make it stand.  But that’s no issue since you’ll find that it hangs straight.

I know that miniature ornaments are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve found I really enjoy them.  If you are like me, you’ll definitely enjoy Snow Angel Memories.

Enjoy more memories with the full size Making Memories series ornaments.

Original Price: $9.95
