These beautiful christmas ornaments were originally called Grolier Disney Ornaments, but have also been known as the Christmas Magic Collection.
David and I have been collecting these ornaments for many years now. We used to buy them from a company called Grolier but in 2009, they closed up shop and the ornaments were passed to another company to sell.
The new organisation is called Early Moments and they have re-branded the ornaments as Disney Character Ornaments. Unfortunately, they will not sell the ornaments to anyone based outside of the US which is really annoying! Fortunately, I have found a way to continue my collection and although shipping is not cheap, I think it is worth it to continue collecting these gorgeous christmas ornaments.
The gallery below is what I consider to be the definitive list of Grolier Disney Ornaments / Early Moments Disney Character Moments.
Over the years, some of the ornaments have been re-issued with subtle differences e.g. Pluto has bigger eyes, Angel Donald has blue tipped wings, version 2 of Ariel looks more like Ariel.
Up until March 2019, all the ornaments were made of resin. All subsequent ornaments are now made of porcelain. Fashionista, a.k.a. Edna from The Incredibles is the last of the resin ornaments. Everything from A Train for Dumbo is made of porcelain.
I’ve not had time to photograph the porcelain ornaments properly so please excuse the terrible image quality!
I normally photograph the ornaments after I have put them on the christmas tree but last year (2020), I daren’t hang them up for fear of them being destroyed by my kitten!
I do occasionally have extra grolier disney ornaments for sale so if you would like some of the newer ones, please feel free to contact me. Be warned, they will not be cheap as I have to get them shipped from the US and pay the customs duty on them.
Ornaments that I have remaining for sale are:
- Alice & Cheshire Cat
- Snowboarding Goofy
They all come in their original packaging with certificate of authenticity.
