I might have missed that, but it woulnd't surprise me. Hallmark has to do something with them.
We are now one week out from Ornament Premier weekend. My local store already had them out for a sneak peak and the ones I saw were cute. Though maybe not as complex or details as years past - then again, nothing is.
As a KOC club member, I'll be able to pick up my pre-orders on Friday night. Hallmark is presenting it as a "perk" of KOC membership but I think it's really just to cut down on crowds on premier day. Either way, since I can go and my store doesn't have a lot of club members, it should be easy enough to get in and out without too much trouble. More worried about the hassle than anything else.
I didn't get much, just the Barbies and one or two others. The porcelain and fabric Violette is probably the nicest of what I've seen so far. Too early for the holiday ornaments but we know what the dolls look like so no surprise there. The gymnast was cute and probably would have been super-popular had the Olympics been held this year.
The Red, White, and Warm repro has been delayed until August due to shipping issues, and my local store couldn't tell me how many of the limited quantity Day To Night Barbies they had, just that they hoped it would be enough. Last year they had plenty of LQs, so I am wondering if there are supply chain issues on this one or just something specific to my store.
In the last "For Keeps" club newsletter, Hallmark did share a promo pic of the Shoe-sational ornament that was designed for the Las Vegas convention - Forgotten Paradise. The convention is still on, so I assume that even if Hallmark isn't there, they will send the shoe ornaments on ahead to be sold.
