I'd like to see the entire line before I make a purchase.

I feel like the entire line should be up by Columbus Day, except for anything "Coco" or "The Last Jedi." Maybe have some limited edition sets. I really hope "Coco" gets a limited edition set. While I'm excited about the movie, other people I've talked to haven't been, so I think this might be the only opportunity to get stuff for it. I'm still ticked that more merchandise is being shown for "Olaf's Frozen Adventure" than "Coco," but the "Coco" merchandise should start showing up in October.

Interesting that they didn't do a "Cars 3" set since Cars is probably Pixar's biggest money-maker for merchandise.

Still waiting for a free shipping promo so I can pre-order "Cars 3." Not a huge fan of the movie, but it's better than "Cars 2," I have all of the Disney/Pixar movies on DVD or blu-ray, and it'll give me a $10 off $40 to use on some ornaments.

Did anyone else notice now that it is September, and we're heading into the holiday shopping season, that the free shipping threshold went back to $75? frown I shouldn't be too upset since I spend more when the threshold is lower than when it's higher (since I think I can just add to the order to get the shipping whereas for a higher one, I'm not going to spend that amount, so I just stick to a smaller purchase).

Some of y'all have way more patience than I do.

I think I'll order a few of my must not miss today with 20% off and a 20.00 code I have from a "oops sorry we messed up discount" from Disney Store.

Also . . . as to my reporting their wonky website these days . . . when I type in www . disneystore . com on my laptop it automatically converts to shopdisney . com and is new and horrible format . . . totally different layout from regular one on my desktop . . . even when you click on specific items to add to cart and for the reviews you can't even click on them to read any reviews. I almost hate to reboot my desktop computer anytime soon for fear this shopdisney will show up there too. WEIRD. And I have recently cleared history and restarted my laptop. I don't know what the heck is going on with the two different websites of the same store basically. ???

Marvel limited edition set is now officially up. I think the first day, it was just an issue of them putting it up too early (since it was showing sold out first thing).

https://www.disneystore.com/ornaments-se...435971/1000344/

I'm not getting this one. I like the Marvel movies, but I don't buy Marvel merchandise.

I'll pass on the Marvel set. I'm might have gotten it if it had an odd character or two in it.

Nothing much today. They added the annual $19.95 glass ornament. It's always been Mickey/Minnie, but this year, it's Pooh/Piglet.

No sale yet.

Wonder what this big surprise is that's supposed to be up tomorrow? They've been promoting it for the last few days.

Edit: Oh...boo! All they did was change to Shop Disney as the website. The search engine's horrible. Search ornament, and you get all Christmas plus mugs and some other random stuff. Filters aren't working properly either. The Shop Disney format is like the Disney Store UK site. No pages, you just keep scrolling down. Hallmark's site is like that. Nothing special, folks. If not new products, I was kind of hoping for a reward card system. Oh well.

Let me imitate Snoopy's laugh for a moment as I stare at this:
https://www.shopdisney.com/piglet-collectible-ornament-by-steiff-6-limited-edition-1437928

Good grief.

They added a bunch of Steiff stuffed animals. As well as an expensive Woody doll.

I do like this plush set though:
https://www.shopdisney.com/chip-n-dale-holiday-plush-set-small-6-1442869

Gonna need it to drop. $25 for two six inch plush is a bit high.

Lots of expensive new items.

I like all the new wooden toys by Melissa & Doug. I've always preferred wooden vs plastic. Many classic baby/toddler toys with a Disney spin.

I don't even like that Piglet ornament. I wouldn't buy it for 1% of that price!

I didn't even pay attention to the Melissa & Doug toys. Toys R Us has carried the Disney Melissa & Doug toys for years. I've bought some to donate to Toys for Tots before.

They are cute. All of Melissa & Doug toys are well-made too. My mom had their dollhouse with furniture. It's still hanging out in the den. Got it from Shop Goodwill for about $35. That thing's pretty darn solid too.

Oh, I like that Piglet (except his scarf looks a little hard), but then again, I've had a soft spot in my heart for Steiff for a long time. I own a couple of bears that I splurged on in the 80s and a more recent bear ornament I bought within the last 5 years. But with a price tag like that, I won't be buying the Winnie-the-Pooh Steiff collection, especially since you'd need so many pieces.

btw - WTP fans, you can see the original stuffed animals that inspired the stories at the New York Public Library. They have them on display in the children's library section.

Oh, and Grumpy at the piano is back in stock.

Luckdragon, were you going to start a list of the ornaments available this Christmas season? I've found that really helpful in the past.

I have a set of the main four, I've saved them since Sarah was a baby . . . of the older more classic representations of them . . . by Gund. It was around '94 or '95 when I bought them. I save too much stuff. Also have a huge collection, including Jeremy Fisher (my favorite) and Mr. McGregor, by Eden. Some of the older plush are so much nicer than the newer stuff.

And of course the Hallmark Crayola family of bunnies & ducks. And few retired Build-A-Bears, the bears, that I can't seem to part with . . . so two of them reside still perched on Steven's headboard between the panel and the posts. The nice extra-large ones, I think one might be a black grizzly and other a polar bear.

My house is going to be so much more fun for future grandkids to visit than "those other grandparents". bwahahahahaha laugh

I guess I need to find a nice pair of pie-eyed Mickey & Minnie but not at those Disney Store prices . . .

My first order of 2017 Sketchbook should arrive tomorrow. I hope.

Earlier I bought the Bernard/Bianca . . . very nice. But that is the only one I've had "in-hand" so far. Until tomorrow~!!!!

Is this your order with the Pirates Redhead, or have you received that already? What else did you get?

Already got Redhead.

I'm betting on Grumpy and Poison Apple being popular so went ahead and ordered with 20% code. Patience is not one of my many virtues~! wink

A prior year Sketchbook Queen of Hearts is on eBay for around 100.00 bucks. Alice stuff is quite popular. Her hourglass snowglobe can sometimes be viewed to have sold for around 500.00 on eBay~!!! She has quite the following that I wasn't that aware of . . .

This order is for:

QUANTITY ITEM DESCRIPTION
1 465063957546 Cinderella Glass Slipper Sketchbook Ornament
1 465063964063 Maleficent Sketchbook Ornament
1 465063960348 Queen of Hearts Sketchbook Ornament
1 465063960911 Lady Sketchbook Ornament
1 465063957393 Huey, Dewey, and Louie Sketchbook Ornament
2 465063784128 Grumpy Sketchbook Ornament

I have the Queen of Hearts from a few years ago with the Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit. Found it for a decent price on ebay.

I cannot believe that there isn't a Goofy ornament of him doing some sport. I hope we get more. The selection's not as good as last year's to me.

I have all of them in the Photobucket album, Diana:
Disney Sketchbook Photobucket Album
2017 ornaments start on page 26.

I can do a list if everyone wants.

I think IF this is all they release this year . . . they will have the fewest offerings in last couple of years. Plus no limited year long series. Wonder why? Maybe Steve Thompson the main person for Sketchbook Ornaments has been busy on some other projects these past many months? Kinda glad about a break in ltd. monthly series but wish there were some more ornaments for 2017. Time will tell what else pops up.

This order is for:

QUANTITY ITEM DESCRIPTION
1 465063957546 Cinderella Glass Slipper Sketchbook Ornament - Love this one,
real glass, love the heart on the shoe.

1 465063964063 Maleficent Sketchbook Ornament
1 465063960348 Queen of Hearts Sketchbook
Very nice. The base of the ornament is heart shaped.Ornament
1 465063960911 Lady Sketchbook Ornament Nice. Good size, not too big or too little.
1 465063957393 Huey, Dewey, and Louie Sketchbook Ornament with the paint job on this gives it a vintage look vs. newer bright colors they are usually done in.
2 465063784128 Grumpy Sketchbook Ornament don't wait too long on this one. Very well done. Very nice size, big but not too big. Since it has already disappeared once from website, plus one of mine Grumpy/bench was broken off from main ornament,
will get replacement.

2 465063964896 Poisoned Apple Sketchbook Ornament - Snow White and the Seven Very nice. Should be popular. Well done.
