The Disney store version of Mary Poppins was kind of stylized, not a true attempt to capture the essence of Julie Andrews. Mary in her Jolly Holiday attire would be awesome. Bert with the penguins is another that would be popular.

Would love a series of different dolls throughout time. Mrs Beasley, Flatsy, Shirley Temple, (they've already done Chatty Kathy), Kewpie, Chrissy...

Ugh. I hope they don't do each Beauty of Birds ornament as a premium.

In fairness, Father Christmas has had a lot of issues too. 5 for Father Christmas in 2015: regular series, African American, premium, KOC colorway, and polar bear. Though...the regular piece and African American are identical except for the faces/beards. The polar bear isn't a Santa.

I'd love to see Father Christmas have a Mrs. Father Christmas complement. I love the animal companions, but I'd like to see his wife at least once.

Aren't the staffs also different on this year's Father Christmas' as well? This is the first year I have purchased both because they were different.

All I want from Hallmark next Christmas is a "Frosty Friends Tree Topper". Is that too much to ask?

Deano, I find it amusing that you can get a Frosty Friends stocking hanger or tabletop display, but no tree topper for this popular series!

Maybe Hallmark will do a tree topper every year. They did a Here Comes Santa tree topper, and a Star Wars tree topper is coming in 2016. Maybe a Frosty Friends tree topper for 2017.

Hope it would have lots of snow and ice and project snow falling all around it.

I bought the Frosty Friends stocking with the intention of turning it into a tree topper, just haven't had the time to do it.

I really would like to see them continue with the Planet of the Apes ornaments. I'd like to see Zira and General Ursus.

A Bionic Woman would be nice to go along with The Six Million Dollar Man.

I would really like to see a 'scene' ornament of Taylor, Nova and the Statue of Liberty with the soundbite from the end of the movie. I realize Taylor, Nova and the horse would be somewhat small but it's such an iconic scene.

I meant to address this before. There are several reasons why I prefer the "book style" ornaments. Particularly the Dr. Seuss ones.
1. I like seeing the actual written words on the "pages" of the ornament to go along with the characters. It is attractive to me as a book lover to see the author's actual words.
2. I love the cover art. The old saying about not being able to judge a book by the cover is partially true, but the cover (and title) is usually what attracts a reader to a book.
3. The characters popping out of the pages reminds me of pop-up books. It's cute.
4. Being book style draws them into a mini collection. I think the book style Dr. Seuss ornaments look more like a series than the original series did. The original series was all over the place: mobiles, clip-ons, wind-ups. The only thing that tied everything together was all Dr. Seuss since it was that particular look that only Dr. Seuss books have. The book ornaments are all the same size.

Mostly though, it's the first reason. I don't buy every book style ornament. I buy the Dr. Seuss ones (except the one with the Grinch's heart growing "thee" sizes that day since I couldn't find one with the corrected word). I definitely want to see the Dr. Seuss ones continue like this for a bit longer. At least until they do The Cat in the Hat. I can live without another Grinch version though. They've done four like this. And technically a fifth but the book is lying flat with the characters coming up.

Books being one of my favorite things in the entire world, I'd be sad not to have book-shaped ornaments. In fact, if I had to choose between ornaments or books, books would win. Always. Hands down. I wouldn't even have to hesitate about it. wink

luckdragon, I like the book style ornaments too. I think they'd look great on a tree, themed or not themed.

The reason I most like a mix of the two styles is that I'm building a nursery rhyme and children's literature character theme tree, so I like to mix it up a bit with more than one style.

All that said, when I finally do put that theme tree up, I might change my mind. You never know...

What I enjoy so much about this forum is that we all decorate differently, and I enjoy seeing every Christmas tree, wreath, and tabletop display posted here. smile

I like open style books because they represent books that have come to life either on TV or the movies.

The Dr Seuss book style ornaments have been great and hope they continue. I'm hoping that other books are brought to life by Hallmark.

For A Christmas Carol, I would love to see Scrooge with a ghost popping out of a book or the guy opening up his window to see Santa flying over his house in the Night Before Christmas. George Bailey in one of the many scenes for It's a Wonderful Life. Many others too.

The same for Disney classics would be great too.

Wouldn't it be great if Hallmark did a book-a-month year long series! That would appeal to book lovers as well as ornament collectors (and those who are both!) Hallmark, are you listening?

I've heard Hallmark is not doing a series in a year because this years was such a failure.
