I received this ornament at no cost from the sweet team at Love, Hallmark, but I can promise that all bubbling enthusiasm and random squeeing are purely my own.
And I can say that with conviction because I’m a Peanuts-loving maniac from way back. It’s actually a running joke in my family that I’m one of those people who doesn’t need or want anything at Christmas. But since my family has caught on to my Snoopy love they all compete to find Peanuts-themed gifts. I have more copies of the movies than any one person really should. I have a big inflatable Santa Snoopy that stands guard by my Christmas tree. The Mighty Thor Thunderpaw even has a ceramic Snoopy bowl for his puppy food. Here are a few of the figurines from my collection:
Obviously I was over the moon at the chance to show off the new Peanuts® Flying Ace Snoopy’s Red Plane Ornament from Hallmark! This is being released in connection with the new Peanuts movie, which is coming to theaters on November 6, and which I cannot wait to see. If you haven’t done so yet, you should rush over and enter Hallmark’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a hometown screening of The Peanuts Movie with 300 of your closest friends and family!
Back to the Flying Ace! He comes packaged in his own lovely box, perfect for gift-giving or for storing. The ornament features a metal loop at the top of Snoopy’s head for hanging. The attention to detail is stunning and makes you feel as if you’ve hopped right into the Peanuts world. From the Flying Ace logo on the side of the plane to Snoopy’s goggles and growling snarl, the artwork is perfectly rendered. Oh, and he has an extra secret! You can push the tiny button to hear the Flying Ace sound off. (The ornament comes packaged with button batteries to run the sound feature. You’ll need a small screwdriver to open the battery compartment.)
