Yes! Love the Nativity idea. I picked up A December to Remember after buying the 2015 Moonlit Sleigh Ride, now I'll go find the Joy ornament. These are so beautiful, light with depth, and really show up on a green tree.

Barbara, I too most look forward to the non-licensed ornaments. [heart].

I had to look up the 2013 A December to Remember ornament. A similar ornament has been done yearly for three years now, all by artist Matt Johnson, though Rodney Gentry was the first artist listed for the 2014 ornament, and Orville Wilson was the second artist listed for the 2015 ornament. Here's links...

2013 A December to Remember http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2013-December-To-Remember_p_35142.html
2014 Joy Shines Bright http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2014-Joy-Shines-Bright-_p_36201.html
2015 Moonlit Sleigh Ride http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2015-Moonlit-Sleigh-Ride-_p_37119.html

I still need to back collect A December to Remember. Didn't know about it until Moley mentioned it here, in this topic.

Moley and Barbara, a nativity ornament that features a star lit sky, a favorite that luckdragon introduced me to a few years ago, is 2004 Silent Night (magic)... http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2004-Silent-Night-Magic_p_7269.html

I have it...somewhere... luckdragon, correct me if I'm wrong. I did a search for it online a while back. Found it, I think, but never got around to posting a link to it here. smile

That Silent Night ornament's one of my favorites.

And while they aren't exactly the same thing, if you want a light up Nativity ornament, there was a collection in 2009. It was done in muted creams, golds, tans, blues, and greens and was Nativity-themed (though no shepherds; yes, that still bothers me):
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2009-Holy-Family-_p_30804.html
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2009-Three-Kings-_p_30803.html
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2009-Love-Fresh-From-Heaven-_p_30802.html
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2009-Angel-of-Peace-_p_30801.html
Then, there was a non-light clip star that went with them:
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2009-Star-of-Hope-_p_30496.html

And, while neither a light clip nor officially part of the collection, I consider this one a complement:
http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2011-Sent-From-Above-_p_33079.html

My favorite is the Holy Family one. I have it, the Three Kings, and the Sent From Above ornaments.

Thanks for confirming I had the right nativity ornament, the 2004 Silent Night. You mentioned this initially...it also plays Silent Night. I like this ornament too. smile

luckdragon, additionally, thanks to you, I bought the entire nativity collection after Christmas in 2009.

This is one of the best collaborative efforts I've seen for a collection by Hallmark. And as you pointed out, all but one of the ornaments have light clips.

I'd have to go back and count, but I think five or six artists worked on this collection.

I found a lot of ivory and gold glass ornaments this year in the thrift stores. I just realized I could do a small tree.

The 2011 ornament is a nice addition. Thanks for drawing my attention to it. smile

I really like the Where the Wild Things Are ornaments. They offer a nice mix of both styles...



http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/search.asp?keyword=where+the+wild+things+are

Another consideration is what we sometimes lose with the book style ornaments. Hop On Pop is one example...

The cubs on the 2003 wind up ornament actually hop up and down on Pop. It's a favorite. That's not to say the 2015 ornament isn't nice too - (I purchased it) - it's just that I really enjoy ornaments with sculpted characters or scenes too from the book or movie, ones that feature lighting effects or movement, particularly the ones that are interactive are fun too...


http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/search.asp?keyword=hop+on+pop

So while I'm okay with some ornaments in the book style, I don't want to be overwhelmed by too many. Here's another book style ornament that I really like - (it's beautiful sculpt)...



But I also like the stand alone characters from the Raggedy Ann and Andy collection too...



See the rest of this collection here... http://www.hookedonhallmark.com/search.asp?keyword=raggedy+ann+and+andy

Which brings to mind one more hope/wish, deserving of it's own post...


Gee, I didn't even think of putting Raggedy Ann and Andy ornaments in with my book collection...I have them in my Toy bin. mmmm...now I would be open to Hallmark doing one of them with a book behind them.

Queli, where did you get that mini ornament stand for the Work Within? I can't recall ever seeing anything small enough so that it looked appropriate for a mini ornament.

Yikes! I have been thinking the same thing! so cat's out of the bag...I have been thinking of tying some of my stocking hangers onto my pop culture tree...was going to try it this Christmas but that tree never got put up. I think it will work...and just think about all those stocking hangers finally getting used.

what a cute idea...book of the month!! haha!...but only if they can do it in plastic....would not at all be interested if they used disaster plaster as they did with the Merry Miniatures...saw a number of them broken....did not buy into the cupcakes or the Merry Miniatures....and it was mostly because of the material used.

While I didn't get the cupcakes, I did buy a couple of the display cases at 75% off. I hope to either be able to take the two stickers off or find other stickers to put over them. I thought the cases would be great for displaying groups of Merry Miniatures (Valentine, St Patrick's, Easter, Halloween) and they wouldn't get dusty.

I think, on the whole, the cupcake series has done well around here...I didn't see a lot sitting on the shelves. Same with the Merry Miniatures....they just weren't my cup of tea.

So many wonderful suggestions! Some we have asked for before but I think sometimes it does take years before we get them...we eventually got Jungle Book!
So, yes, let's keep bringing up If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...what a great children's book!~ And, yes to a Shirley Temple Doll. Yes, to Granny from Sylvester and Tweety. Would love to see Tuffy from Tom and Jerry and wasn't there a bulldog in there, too? Was his name Spike? Lincoln Logs and Play Doh? Love it!! and another resounding yes to continue Planet of the Apes! And, would love a Robin for BOB.

Play Doh is Hasbro, so there is a chance. Hopefully they'll also do a Lite Brite ornament that is a light clip ornament since Lite Brite is also Hasbro.

Been preaching the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie ornament for years. I'm hoping someone from Hallmark has seen it mentioned several times (not only by me) and is looking into getting a license for it. It would make a spectacular addition to the unofficial children's books. Don't care if it's book style or just the character.

My mom's wanting another Curious George ornament. She has all of the Hallmark Curious George ornaments.

Any word on Santas from Around the World? From what I've heard there isn't going to be one for KOC members. Maybe we'll get a limited quantity one? They've only done one LQ ornament for the series, so maybe it's time for another. My hope/wish this year is for Portugal. I'd love to see them branch into the Far East though. Especially a kimono-donning Japanese Santa. Actually, I'd like to see more Asian-themed ornaments. We got Lotus Fairy, and I had to laugh at my PM choices. I didn't even realize it until just now that both characters are Asian. A little mini-theme (I mean, Mulan's probably going to happen as the limited one unless they finally do Anna and Elsa). But, it would be nice to see them take some inspiration from the 1983 Oriental Butterflies ball ornament and make them figural. That could be gorgeous!

I would love to see a Lite Brite ornament. My neighbors daughter plays with our Lite Brite frequently when she's visiting us.

My hope for the next Santa's Around the World is Finland. Joulupukki is one of the, if not the oldest inspirations for Modern Santa Claus and Rovaniemi is the home of Santa.

Sue's idea of Spike reminded me of Marc Antony with the little kitty - that would be a fun ornament of characters we haven't seen over and over.

YES to more Santa's Around the World. I get weary of asking for them year after year. I need Greece and Australia and Japan to name a few.

I also picked up one of the display cases at 75% off with the idea of re-purposing it. The only cupcake I bought was the crab for a summer display but thought the display case could work with other collections somehow.

As for Santas Around the World, a Scottish one and a Portuguese one would be appreciated, please!

It is a Disney property and Hallmark licenses a lot of their properties but I don't know if it has the popularity that it once had. But, never say never!

I agree. I assumed that since the Hallmark Channel is airing it that there could be at least some hope.

...still hoping...still wishing continued

I hope to see a Lite Brite ornament soon-love that idea.

Looney Tunes Granny! Aww! Love it! Great idea:)

I would so love more Disney and Pixar architecture: the cottage in Snow White, the hunchback's Notre Dame Cathedral, the castle in Brave (based on Castle DunBroch), Big Ben from Peter Pan...

Luckdragon-love all of your ideas for Disney architecture! I'd buy them all!

I'd also like an ornament of the toy box from Toy Story-maybe slightly opened with toys peeking out. Or, the cardboard box used for the attic for the storage of Andy's toys.

And, of course, my wish list for Disney and Pixar 'supporting role' characters:

Harris, Hubert and Hamish (triplets from Brave)
Jasper and Horace (101 Dalmatians henchmen)
Cinderella's step-sisters (Drizella and Anastasia), fairy godmother, and the King
Fox and Hound
All Disney Pixar steed (I love animals:)
