New Harry Potter™ Keepsake Ornament Storytellers and Tree Topper

Hogwarts™ Castle Tree Topper
Harry Potter™ Collection

Hogwarts™ comes home. Relive the story of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with Hallmark’s newest Storytellers collection. For 2019, Hallmark is expanding their offering of Keepsake Storytellers Ornaments with three favorite characters from the Wizarding World: Harry Potter™, Hermione Granger™, and Ron Weasley™. This innovative technology allows each ornament to give consumers a fun show on its own, but when other Storytellers ornaments from the collection are added, they’ll unlock more interactive performances. The new Harry Potter™ collection features three ornaments, sold separately, that together play an epic light and sound performance from the feature film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. To add even more enchantment from Hogwarts™, Hallmark Gold Crown will also be offering a coordinating interactive Christmas tree topper featuring the score from “Hedwig’s Theme.”

For her new limited-series ornament collection, Edythe Kegrize delved into her memories watching the ballet. “I went to this ballet several times as a child and loved the colorful, elaborate costumes and creative set designs. I still enjoy the music each Christmas,” Edythe recalls. Each ornament in her new Nutcracker Sweet series will feature a character from the famous ballet. Edythe describes them as “sweet, simple forms and inspired by clothespin dolls and simple wooden ornaments from Germany. The colorful costumes will have fabric, crystals and other attachments for a more handcrafted quality.”

For the next ornament in her Christmas Window series (17th), Tammy Haddix didn’t have to look far for inspiration. “My window ornaments are always inspired by my boys and the things they like,” Tammy says. And the watchful observer just might recognize an old friend on next year’s ornament. “Since my pet shop window ornament, I’ve always included a little spaniel dog. And I’ve always wanted to create the scene of a boy getting a small ice cream cone for the dog! This sweet dog is his best friend, just like my Baxter, our labradoodle, is for my boys.” Tammy hopes next year’s window brings back fond memories of the ice cream shops of yesteryear. “I sure know I was craving ice cream as I sculpted it!”
