Toy Story: Alien Decoupage Christmas Tree Ornament (Hallmark)

Back in the fall of 2013, Hallmark began releasing some adorably stylized "shatterproof" decoupage Christmas tree ornaments at stores like Target, Walmart and [at the time] Toys R Us. Characters from all sorts of different properties were represented, but the majority were characters from Disney/Pixar/Star Wars/ Marvel films. The line—geared toward younger kids— proved to be super popular and has returned, as well as expanded, every year since! It's always so fun, come the beginning of November, when Target puts out their Christmas stuff and I get to see which new characters have been developed. This year there was only one new Pixar character, but it's a good one—a Pizza Planet Alien from Toy Story

This is the fifth Toy Story character to be released in this style of ornament. Before this there was Buzz & Woody (original and updated designs) and Jessie & Rex. As usual, it's perfection! I absolutely love this design and it fits in so nicely with all the others.

If you've handled one of these before, then you know these decoupage ornaments are very lightweight, glossy and come ready to hang. This one stands at a little over 3" tall and retails for $7.00. If you're interested in picking this up for your (or your little one's) Christmas tree, be sure to head to your nearest Target soon before they sell out. You can also snag it online HERE if you'd rather just have it shipped to you. I'm saving this (and all the decoupage ornaments) for when we set up Aidan's own little Christmas tree in his room next year! 

Side Note- As a massive Star Wars fan, I've also been collecting all of those characters from this line as well. Check them out HERE and HERE as featured on my Star Wars collection Instagram page. A "Baby Yoda" one from The Mandalorian also just came out, so you know I had to grab that one!

Be sure to view all my previous posts on this ornament collection HERE. The only Pixar ones I'm missing now from past years (before I started collecting them) are Mater from Cars, Sulley (regular Monsters Inc. version) and Joy, Sadness, Disgust & Anger from Inside Out. I still hope to track them down somehow.
