Christmas Meme: 25 Days of Christmas - Ornaments  
4th A great memory I have of childhood was our Christmas ornaments. None of these Christmas bulbs and sparkly stuff. We had personalized ornaments and every year we got new ones. When I was a kid I remember that not only did Hallmark have ornaments every year but McDonald's often had something special. A few I loved and owned...
I loved these ornaments as a kid and some of them made noise as I recall. I don't know what happened to these ornaments. My mom gave all of us our ornaments when we were on our own but she couldn't find mine. Very sad.

I've pieced together a collection over the years but it is rather small. I'd hoped to add this ornament this year but can't find him anywhere...
Always loved The Brave Little Tailor cartoon.

I hope one day I can help my kids gather all these little memories in the form of a yearly Christmas ornament.

I have that exact bianca from the rescuers ornament, we still hang it on the tree each year :) We get the kids one new ornament each year that kinda goes with what the are into at the time. Actually we are putting them on the tree tonight... Its so fun watch how excited they get rediscovering them each year :)

It really is. I loved that about each ornament I had once upon a time. I miss my McDonald's ornaments. I loved Oliver and Company and my Sebastian and Flounder.

I remember when Cinderella's mice came out. I remember begging to go to McD's. I loved them.

I actually remember having the Rescuers though not getting them. The others I remember fully.

I remember Polly Pockets. I think they were a little young for me when they came out but my sister liked them.

well i am a few years younger than you, but i was absolutely obsessed with them. so much so that for my 8th b-day i had a polly pocket cake! it had an actual polly pocket on it and was covered in icing.

8th birthday was the most memorable. Consisted of a polly pocket cake and a Pocahontas puzzle that was also my birthday card...so I had to put it together to decode the message. #memories #nostolgia

Sounds fun.

My sister had many a cake decked out like that.

Mine were different as a kid. My mom once made a cake that looked like a Cheeseburger and then there was the Castle with mote and dragons... that was my favorite.

I remember & had these too. But sadly rats destroyed them. I remember when Mcdonalds toys were actually awesome.

So true. I remember having tons of McDonald's toys when I was a kid because my mom who just outright buy them from the place. And we actually played with them. All the time.

Ah the good old days.
