I thought some might be interested in this information, if they don't already know.

I stopped in my local Hallmark store yesterday and they shared an email from Hallmark that was titled "Update: Errors Identified in the 2019 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Dream Book." So, I am sharing it here:

~ Late additions to the Dream Book include:
Mookie Betts (1599QXI3877)
Dr. Seuss Grinch (1799QXI3897)
Making the Play--Patrick Mahomes II Kansas City Chiefs (2099QXI3879)--The Mahomes jersey ornament in the Dream Book is a different ornament with a different #.

~ Tree Rex (1599QGO2399) is shown in the Dream Book as brown. It is actually green.

~ 2019 Beer Stein (1599QGO2149) is photographed backwards. Apparently we are seeing the back side of the ornament.

~ Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets (1799QXI3869) will be released in November for the Holiday Open House, not in December as the book says.

~ 2019 Snowflake (1799QGO2409) and Regal Deer (1799QGO2017), shown on page 35 of the in-store Dream Book, were inadvertently left out of the KOC version of the Dream Book and Wish List.

~ The November Holiday Open House dates on the back cover are incorrect. The correct dates for the November Holiday Open House are November 8-17.

~ The December Gift of Memories dates on the back cover are also incorrect. The correct dates for the December Gift of Memories event are December 3-8.

This ornament is a sculpted ornament of Patrick Mahomes II, so that's why they have different SKUs (his number on the jersey is correct). Mahomes is right-handed, and for one play this past season he passed with his left hand and it worked. I think it's funny that he's depicted like he's going to throw with his left hand.

There are a few other mistakes I need to ask Hallmark about. One of the Star Wars Episode IX doesn't have a release date (I would guess December since the other one comes out then) and some of the release dates don't match what's on Hallmark.com.

They could have hired me for a fairly low pay rate and these things wouldn't have happened. I'm a good proofreader - I used to proofread for my husband the practicing journalist and I worked doing data entry at the best software development shop in the country in the late 1970s. A lot of the information I entered had to be correct because we had contract deadlines.

Thanks for sharing!

I don't think they are changing the dates but rather correcting them. For the for "Holiday Open House" they realized they had truncated the event by accidentally omitting the second weekend and For the "Gift of Memories" event they realized they were starting the event on cyber Monday and so decided to move it back one day so that the sales wouldn't be effected by people staying home and ordering online.

The manager of my HM store said they would be happy to start Monday for Gift of Memories especially since it is on back of Dream Book. Not everyone orders on line. On that Monday.

I'm kinda bummed the Tree Rex is green. I liked the brown one in the dreambook, mostly because one of my direct reports dressed up for Halloween last year in a brown T-Rex costume and it was hilarious watching her work in costume all day. I wanted to give her the ornament for Christmas this year in remembrance of her Halloween costume. Bummer that the green version doesn't look the same as her costume as well as the brown one did.

Based on the latest research as I understand it, the brown is more scientifically accurate, though not the animal's true color, as is it believe a Tyrannosaurus Rex actually looked like this:


Beside the brown provides a better contrast to the green wiring.

I just noticed that the website has updated with the green painted version.
