Review – 2018 Hallmark Ninjago Ornament
It’s that time of year again. The Holiday Season is in full swing, and folks are digging out those boxes of ornaments and trimming their trees. Well, much like last year, there is a new Hallmark ornament that I have added to my geeked-out Christmas tree. Last year, they released a LEGO® Batman (click here to read my review). This year, we have gotten Lloyd from the LEGO® Ninjago movie.
This is a nicely designed ornament. Lloyd is quite detailed, with a lot of printing on his torso and arms. Obviously, since this is an ornament, Lloyd is fixed in one position. He is a touch smaller than the Batman that we got last year. Lloyd also does not have any neat textures like Batman did. But, I don’t think that really takes away from the ornament, because it is nicely designed and painted.
Hallmark employees make a habit of opening the ornament boxes before you actually buy them. They always show you that the ornament is in good condition. Buying Lloyd was no exception. But, I do offer a word of caution. While my ornament was in good condition in the store, when the employee repackaged it, she unintentionally bent Lloyd’s sword. I was able to bend it back into shape, but I am sure that too much of that will cause it to break right off. So, be careful repackaging your ornament…
Hallmark ornaments tend to be a little on the pricey side. In Canada, you will usually pay about $20-$25 for one. That is why I only buy one of these every year. They are nice though, and this one is great for the LEGO® fans out there. This year, you can also get Joker from the LEGO® Batman Movie. My local Hallmark did not carry that one, I found out about it while perusing their website. I am glad that I was able to get Lloyd though.
