Okay, I know this is a blog about Hallmark ornaments.  Many Hallmark ornament collectors collect the Barbie ornaments.  2012 was the last year of Barbie ornaments in the Hallmark line.  For 2013 American Greetings has the license to produce Barbie ornaments.  They will have 6 Barbie ornaments in the 2013 Carlton Heirloom Ornaments collection, and 2 Barbie ornament in the American Greetings ornament line.  Here's a peak at the Carlton ornaments:

This is Carlton's Holiday Barbie ornament.  It is the first in an ornament series inspired by the Holiday Barbie Doll.  A charm, commemorating the silver anniversary of the Holiday Barbie Doll collection, is attached to the ornament.

This is the first in the African-American Holiday Barbie series.

The Pink & Pretty ornament shown above is the first ornament in Carlton's new Vintage Fashion series.

The 1959 Debut Barbie is an homage to the original Barbie doll introduced in 1959.

Sophisticated Lady ornament--available in the 2013 Carlton Heirloom ornaments line.
