"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. Take a look in the Five and Ten, glistening once again, with candy canes and silver lanes aglow ... "

It has been looking like Christmas since July at your local Hallmark Gold Crown store.  This past summer just in time for Christmas in July, Hallmark rolled out their annual line of Keepsake ornaments helping not only to mark the holidays but celebrate a milestone or create a new memory.  This year the Keepsake ornaments mark their 40th year by  "... turning your memories into magic."

Playing a major role once again this year as in the past, Disney takes center stage with an extensive ornament product line from Mickey Mouse to Monsters University.  Your Disney favorites are starring in dozens of products from tree decorations to plush.

For years Hallmark has captured the magic of Disney in ornaments from the classic characters to new animated features.  This year in addition to ornaments, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy are featured in Disney's Wireless Band.  Each animated character holds an instrument and plays two songs and when synchronized with the other band members plays a total of 10 songs as a group.  Each band member retails for $15.95 with any purchase.  Minnie, Donald and Goofy are already on store shelves with Mickey and Daisy joining the band in the next few weeks.

Jen Seyller, product director for Hallmark Gold Crown, says technology and a touch of magic have been added to many of their products, "To help these cherished Disney characters and their stories come to life and make the holidays brighter for our customers."

The wireless band line is nothing new for Hallmark since they have rolled out previous versions featuring angels and most recently the Peanuts gang in 2012.  This year however the Disney character figures are a bit larger to accommodate the base-playing Goofy who stands a bit taller than previous band member figures.  In order to make an accurate scale-representation of the Disney gang, they slightly increased the size of the line for a better appearance.

If the Nutcracker Suite is part of your holiday tradition, check out Hallmark's Disney Nutcracker Sweets, feature Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy.  Candy details adorn each button-activated plush character as each one plays a different segment of one of the songs from "The Nutcracker." 

And Christmas is not complete unless Santa Goofy makes his way into your home.  Totally Ticklish Goofy is the newest push-button activated plush featuring the Goofster, completed with Santa hat and suit, singing a parody of "Up on the Housetop."  If you tickle Goofy during his rendition of the holiday classic, he will burst into laughter.
