I am a bit surprised that no one has posted a thread on the mystery ornaments this year. Is their popularity waning in general?

I bought two kittens (for me) and two Captain Marvel (for husband) and lucked out getting one of each for both. I then bought two more kittens at another store and ended up repeating the one of each. I wonder if Hallmark changed the ratios a bit this time around.

Thatís great that you got one of each with your first shot!

I bought one of the Captain Marvel for my husbandís superhero tree. He had told me when we made our wish list that he would be happy with either of the color combinations. Ours turned out to be the blue and red one.

We didnít do the Mischievous Kittens because that isnít a line that I collect. It I thought both colors were nice.

There have been posts on the Mischievous Kitten surprise in other threads, but this the first one to mentions the Captain Marvel mystery ornament.

I only bought one of the MK Surprise and got the orange cat, which is the one I wanted. The original ornament was a gray cat, so this works great for me.

I didn't get the Captain Marvel, but if I go back next week and they have some, I may buy one.

Cheers to you, Elliott. That is incredibly great luck!

I got 2 Captain Marvel boxes, and both were the common red and blue. I really don't like the Mystery Box offerings, regardless of the series. Seems to me that Keepsake Ornaments are probably responsible for a large portion of Hallmark's profits as is, so I don't see the need for the "mystery". Maybe if the different versions were made in equal numbers I'd feel less offended, but when there's always one that's RARE, its just annoying.

I always tell myself to not participate in the mystery ornaments and I end up caving when they arrive. With the exception of Mary's Angels piece, I have always gotten lucky in obtaining both of them with minimal investment.

However, I really do wish they were an even 50/50 mixture as my luck will eventually run out.
