There are several good ones this year. Must resist.

Is it just me - or are they a lot more expensive this year? They all seem to be about $25 each. Maybe I am looking at the wrong ornaments. I do want the ghosts in the buggy though. :-)

What are Sketchbook ornaments?

It's what Disney calls their ornament line. They are released in The Disney Store and shopdisney.com

Trump's 25% tariffs on China-made ornaments went into effect this year!

Maybe they went up because Disney just bought 20th Century Fox for billions.

Don't blame President Trump. It was Obama's fault that so much stuff is made in China.

I think it's Disney raising prices to make up for lost sales.

Making up for lost sales does make sense. I still would prefer to buy with a sale, but there are a few I really want. So may just bite the bullet and get them.

Hoping for a 20% or 25% off sale by Labor Day.

The prices were set long ago as the tags had to be made and printed also, and attached to the ornament. This is all done prior to shipping to the US. That means it was pre-virus.
The ornament price increase is a result of tariffs on Chinese goods, same with the increase in Hallmark ornament pricing. Tariffs are passed along to the consumer in the long run. It's just the way it works.

Hopefully we will see ornaments made in the USA soon.

I noticed "most" of the 2020 Hallmark ornaments are made is Sri Lanka. It's not the USA, but I'm glad there not made in China.

Wow! The Sketchbook selections online keep increasing. Lots to choose from, but I still want to see them up close before purchasing. The local Disney Store claims that they haven't received theirs yet, although they did have the Pluto 90th Anniversary release.

Our locaL Disney Store has all sketchbook ornaments at $15. Plus today being the final day of Friends and Family, there is an additional 25% off that price!

I forgot to mention that our store is in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm assuming that all Disney Stores are participating in the sale. It looks like the $15 sale is not available online.
$11.25 for a $24.99 ornament is not a bad deal at all!
