    Very Cool POTC/Jack Sparrow Musical Ornament at Hallmark

    I was at Hallmark yesterday looking at this year's Christmas ornaments when I saw one that I absolutely had to have:


    To my knowledge, it's the first ornament to be released based on POTC. It recreates the scene from the first movie where Jack Sparrow remains trapped behind bars after his fellow prisoners find freedom courtesy of a stray cannonball. Suddenly it's his turn to try to coax the key from the pooch. Here's what the ornament looks like up close:




    The ornament has some weight to it and I really like the detail. It's very well made.

    It also plays music. Here's my (not so) high-tech recording of it:


    It retails for $16.50 at Hallmark.

    Hmm, looks like I'll just have to add this one to my collection. I have so many ornaments I can't put them all on the tree.

    Im sure my mom (who already has way too many ornaments to begin with ) will end up getting it.

    I didn't like the Jack Sculpt either, but still got it, more for the music and the scene in general than anything else. I got last year's Small World one too. I'm hoping for a theme park attraction one each year; is that so much to ask? Here's to a Haunted Mansion or Tiki Room ornament in 2007.

    Re: Very Cool POTC/Jack Sparrow Musical Ornament at Hallmark

    Hallmark has always had trouble with human faces. I have some Marilyn Monroe and Scarlett O'Hara ornaments that are positively scary. Hallmark, however, is excellent at capturing the spirit of a character or scene, even if the the face doesn't quite match.

    Although this one's not officially the first of a series, I suspect we'll be seeing more POTC ornaments next year (fingers crossed).

    I like this one but when I saw it I first thought "where are the other two guys?!" Then I saw that is was hiJacked scene.

    There is also an ornament of Aurora dancing with her prince. Push the button for the music and her dress changes from pink to blue and back!

    This thing is a piece of junk. I put it on my tree but my hand slipped and it fell to the floor. The upper portion shattered so bad I couldn't put it back together again.

    I never saw this thread before, Tim, but Amber picked out this ornament (Best. Pirates. Ride. Ever.) and the girls play it constantly. I keep moving it higher on the tree hoping they won't be able to reach it, but they always can.
