Hallmark has unveiled a new range of holiday trinkets themed to Universal Studios properties and partnerships, including ornaments inspired by Super Mario, “Jurassic Park,” “Harry Potter,” and more. Check out the items below, along with links to their pages on the Hallmark website. These items will be available starting July 15.
This “Keepsake” depicts Mario taking on his cat form after obtaining the Super Bell in the popular “Super Mario 3D World” video game.
This Toad miniature Christmas tree ornament depicts Mario’s loyal friend, with arms extended in a cheerful pose. This is a very miniature decoration — in the final photo on the right, we can see Toad is roughly the size of a standard penny.
The next item pays homage to Harry Potter’s sixth year at Hogwarts with this Christmas tree ornament stylized to resemble the original American edition of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Harry and Professor Dumbledore are peering into the basin of Emerald Potion, which concealed one of Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes.
Raise a glass and proudly proclaim your mischievous tendencies with this Christmas tree ornament resembling a vintage mug with a Harry Potter theme. Featuring an embossed design of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the iconic quote that activated the Marauder’s Map, the drink vessel decoration boasts a functional opening lid courtesy of a Golden Snitch hinge. Do you solemnly swear that you are up to no good?
The next of the ornaments showcases the magical home of Arthur, Molly, Percy, Fred, George, Ron and Ginny Weasley — The Burrow. It often provided a safe refuge for Harry, Hermione and Ron during their adventures as students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. For a more enchanting display, insert the bulb of a standard miniature light string through the rubber grommets on the ornament to create a special lighting effect.
Relive the Wizarding World tradition of the Yule Ball during the Triwizard Tournament with this Christmas tree ornament featuring Hermione in her pink ball gown.
The tabletop Christmas tree features a sturdy base with a Hogwarts grounds design, school castle tree topper and six miniature ornaments, including Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Dumbledore, the Golden Snitch, Sorting Hat and Time-Turner. Connect to the included power adapter for continuous light on the castle and prelit tree, then press the button on the base to hear music from “Hedwig’s Theme” by John Williams.
Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film that added velociraptors to pop culture with this 1992 Jeep Wrangler YJ Sahara skinned as a staff vehicle for Jurassic Park. Bearing the markings of Jeep 18, which carried Drs. Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm through the park, this die-cast metal Christmas tree ornament features wheels that turn and details seen in the classic movie.
In the summer of 1993, an ambitious entrepreneur named John Hammond spoke four words that changed the world: “Welcome to Jurassic Park.” Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the edge-of-your-seat science-fiction thriller “Jurassic Park” with this Christmas tree ornament featuring the Dilophosaurus that devoured computer guru Dennis Nerdy. The juvenile prehistoric carnivore stands on the shaving cream can that contained the stolen dinosaur embryos.
Pages from the classic Dr. Seuss book “Fox in Socks” come to life with a dimensional design of the clever Fox doing his best to tongue-tie poor Mr. Knox, while the back of the decoration looks like the literary cover.
