The Collectible World Of Hallmark Figurines

Jun 17, 2008
The Hallmark Company has been a part of our lives for well over 85 years. In 1973-74 Hallmark produced their first figurines and ornaments within the Christmas era and these have continued to be some of the largest collectibles today.

These unique and collectible figurines from Hallmark come in an assortment of themes and designs. There is a little bit of everything for everyone's taste. If you are a Snoopy fan Hallmark has many classic Peanuts figurines available for you, such as the "Sweet Little One", "Cyber Chuck", "Lighted Great Pumpkin", "Lucy", "Flying Ace", " Ms. Van Pelt" and " King of the Sandbox".

Other cute and delightful holiday collectible figurines include "2007 Ringing in Christmas", "A Time to Skate", "Cauldron Trouble", "Tweety-Christmas List", "2007-Chocolate Moose", "Looney Tunes-Deck the Yard", Dashing Through the Mall", "Santa's Sweet Ride-2007", "Snow Buddies" and "Sledding into Christmas".

The best place to find these collectible vintage Hallmark figurines and ornaments is the internet; there are many different shops that carry these at fair and reasonable prices. You could even be lucky enough to find some of these vintage treasures within your own neighborhood at flea markets or yard sales at a price as low as 1-2 dollars.

For the best collectible results always keep your figurines and their boxes in pristine (Mint) condition. This will bring a better price if you ever decide to sell your collection in the future.

Highly sought after Hallmark figurine sets include the series of Nostalgic Houses, Star Trek, Rocking Horses, and the series by Betsy Clark. Betsy Clark series was the first within the series Hallmark made of Christmas figurines and ornaments in the year of 1973. These were glass white balls which included a young girl giving food to deer and a little lamb being hugged by another young girl.

Popular collectible figurines by Hallmark include "70th Anniversary Snow White-Wishes Really Do Come True", "Wizard of Oz-Wicked Witch of the West", "Barbie Series", "The Amazing Spiderman", "30th Anniversary -The Adventure Begins-Star Wars New Hope", "Peanuts-The Sunday Funnies", "Sleeping Beauty-Disney", "2007-Puppy Love", "Clark Kent/Superman-Quick Change Artist", "Gone With the Wind Series", "Fairy Messengers Series", "Wizard of Oz-Dorothy Gale", "Lionel Train Series", "Doorways of the World Series" and "Mickey and Minnie Mouse Series".

Figurine collecting is a fun hobby that you can pass on from generation to generation. You, your children, and your children's children can fall in love with these unique figurines and enjoy them year after year as you do now.
