Snow Buddies Hallmark Ornaments Series



This is an adorable series of smiling snowmen with little animal friends. The series is sculpted by Hallmark artist Tammy Haddix and started in 1998. The first in the series features the snowman with a little brown bunny and has increased steadily in value since the beginning of the series. Hallmark also produced colorway (repaints) of several of the pieces in this series.
Many of the others in the series are favorites with collectors as well. The fox in 1999 (#2) is getting harder to find and we have many requests for the 2000 (#3) which has the snowman feeding cardinals. In 2004 (#8), the baby fawn is especially cute and the squirrels crawling on the snowman in 2003 (#7) are a unique touch.
Hallmark has introduced other items as well to complement this series. Last year, when the #10 was in stores, they produced a special limited edition Anniversary piece with several animals as well as a special snow globe. This year, a snow buddies scene was featured on the first of six Holiday Ball Ornaments Hallmark is selling for $6.95 each during the release of each new set of ornaments throughout the holiday season. Look for this ball as well as series number #11 where the snowman is fishing in your local Hallmark stores this year.
