Wow, can't believe they put the light and sound ones into the $10 sale! That's a huge savings. Wish I would have waited a week.

I was surprised too to see the Little Mermaid one for $10.

This is one of the best years ever for Disney Sketchbook ornaments to me.


I agree. I have a cart full right now. Bought a few here and there, mainly when they had the 25% off which was about the same as 10.00 sale except for the 16.95 ones. I did go ahead and get 2 musical ones then because I didn't want to miss out on them.

Wanting to see the Sketchbook Ornaments up close, I visited the nearest Disney Store.
I found out a few interesting things.
The posted sign for the '$10 each if 2 or more are purchased' stated that it applied to $12.95 ornaments only. The online deal is so much better as it applies even to the $16.95 ones.
The only Star Wars SB ornament on the racks was Yoda. I inquired about the others and was told something very strange. More were expected to be in Saturday's shipment- but the store had received a memo that they were not to be part of the $10 sale (strange, since they are priced at $12.95)

One improvement in stores this year. There is a long oblong plastic strip between each ornament on the hooks. This should reduce in-store breakage considerably.

Also to Luckdragon, the poster who asked about the Inside Out glass ornament,
it was in the Disney store along with the other Sketchbooks (priced at $12.95).

I'm not surprised the stores don't include the $16.95 ornaments on the $10 each when you buy two deal.
I thought I'd wait until the next monthly ornament comes out to buy more, but I got worried they'd yank the $16.95 ornaments off the web special, or that they'd sell out, so I loaded up 8 ornaments in my cart today. One of each of the sound (Ariel, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Yoda), the 2 other Star Wars (since the stores aren't including those in the sale, either) and Wall-e and Beast to hit the free shipping. Those are my two favorites from the $12.95 line and I feel better knowing I have them on order and don't have to worry about them selling out.
I might see if the Disney store will let me return my first Rapunzel (purchased last Monday at full price) and use it towards two at $10 (like Inside Out and ?).

The Inside Out ornament finally made it on the website!

I do wish it wasn't a glass globe ornament, but I'll take it since it has all five of the emotions. Now...to wait on a Bing-Bong ornament...

Oh, and they did do the Tangled musical ornament as part of the $10 deal last year, however, they were not part of it at first and the Elsa one was never part of the deal. The bigger surprise is the online exclusive Jasmine being part of the deal. This is the first year that the online one has been part of the deal. I don't mind having already bought the musical ornaments. It is what it is, and each time I bought them, they contributed to getting the free shipping, so they saved me more than the $6.95 difference.

I'm waiting for the $10 off $40 code to come (from buying Phil and a few more things) before making my first order in October. I'm saving some ornaments until the "Rhapsody in Blue" ornament comes out.

My list:
Aladdin musical (already bought)
Ariel musical (already bought)
Tangled musical (already bought)
Beast
Evil Queen (one of my favs this year, I love the lenticular design for the mirror)
Inside Out
Arlo and Spot
Princess Leia and R2-D2
Wall-E and Eve (one of the best Sketchbook ornaments EVER)
Peas in a Pod
Lady and the Tramp with Joe
Aristocats (still kinda sorta a maybe)
Merida
Maybe Pocahontas and maybe Alice. I've always liked that Alice sculpt, so maybe I'll buy her this year...

That'll be ten new characters for me (subtracting Joy since I'm getting her Saturday from Hallmark).

I'm still curious if they'll add a frilly Anna and the Captain America ornament that was mentioned. They also have not added the personalized ornaments that the UK has started adding. Though, the US site may not carry them. The reviews on them were kind of bad last year saying the engravings were barely legible.

There are 71 ornaments on the website now and the cast member I spoke to in store said there are roughly 80 this year. So there is possible more to come. I tend to believe this because she did mention a dinosaur ornament and then the Arlo one came out.

New addition, the Frozen Fever sketchbook ornament set:
http://www.disneystore.com/frozen-fever-sketchbook-ornament-set/mp/1383586/1000344/

While it's nice to see Kristoff have a figural, I'm passing. The little snowball things she kept sneezing out really disturbed me. Anna, Elsa, and Sven's ornaments look great. Kristoff's looks fine until I see Olaf smashing cake in his face. Luckily, I bought the D23 "Frozen" ornament set, so I have a good Kristoff now, and I have the Disney Parks Sven with the lights in his antlers.

But, if you're a "Frozen" collector, you may want this set. I love that the box has the artwork from the 2015 Disney Sketchbook ornament hangtag.

But you need those little guys to add more characters to your Disney ornament collection.

I always wait until October for the $10 sale. I went to the Disney Store yesterday and picked up seventeen of them. There was a couple that weren't there, including "The Good Dinosaur," so I paid for them there and they ordered them from the website for me and will send them to my home. Ten bucks a piece and free shipping. Can't be that!

Got my $10 off $40 or more coupon in my email today! Naturally, it expires on the 18th (the day before the predicted date for Art of Disney Animation's release).

So, I did my major ornament purchase plus bought the Anna and Kristoff classic dolls since they were on sale BOGO $1. I'll add them to my Toys for Tots donation pile.
Anyway, I bought these:
Arlo and Spot
Beast
Evil Queen and Magic Mirror
Inside Out
Lady and the Tramp
Peas in a Pod
Princess Leia and R2D2

I'm saving the last few to help get free shipping when I buy the Fantasia 2000 ornament.

Something to note: If the $10 off $40 makes your order under $75, you won't get the free shipping. I tried it, didn't work.

I believe most of us made an order during the promotional period, so check your email! It knocked my ornaments to $8.86-$8.87 each and made one doll $15.02 and the other $0.89.

They also added the personalization ornaments.

I meant to grab Wall-E and Eve on this order and forgot (I was fumbling over what the last ornament was and picked Peas in a Pod by mistake), so I'm mentioning that here along with Merida, Alice, and Thomas O'Malley/Duchess and maybe Pocahontas so I can keep up with my list for the Fantasia 2000 ornament. wink

Stan, they did do Sketchbook ornaments for "The Force Awakens."

Found these on ebay today:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-Store-BB-...=item567c952734
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-Store-KYL...=item567c952db3

Anyone out there who has a physical Disney Store they visit, what other ornaments is the website missing? I'm trying to keep my Photobucket album up to date.
Thanks!

Thanks Luckdragon,
I like the BB-8 ornament, but already have 2 Kylo-ren ornaments.

I wish they had these in the online Disney Store. Anyone see then in there local Disney Store. We no longer have a Disney Store in my area.

I have a Disney Store about 10-15 minutes from my house. I have yet to go there this year, but I need to make my way to check what ornaments they have displayed right now.

No Disney Store within a few hundred miles of me these days.
