We hear you – it’s April. Why are we talking about the holiday season now? Honestly, some days it still feels cold enough to be the winter season. Some people also plan the season very early. And holidays fill most people with joy, right?
Well, we’ll bring you some Nintendo-themed Christmas cheer this spring. Hallmark – the greeting card company – publishes a range of wooden decorations for a handful of Nintendo franchises.
We first saw one of these on the Zelda fan site Zelda Universe, who shared an extremely detailed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tree ornament from Hallmark of Link wearing his blue tunic and aiming his travel bow. But a deep dive into Hallmark’s website revealed that it’s more than just Zelda who gets the ornament treatment, as there are also some lovely Mario and Animal Crossing.
Here’s a look at all the video game themed Christmas treats we could find on Hallmark’s website:
The Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems also light up and make sounds, making them a must-haves in our books.
Hallmark has actually been selling Nintendo and video game-themed ornaments for a few years now, and the SNES has definitely been seen before. Here is last year’s selection, as shared by IGN.
If you are really desperate to get started planning for the Christmas season, you can pre-order these ornaments now and they will arrive to you just in time as they come out on October 8th. Prices range from $ 9.99 to $ 22.99.
Do you want to get some of these? And are we mad about talking about the holidays now? The sound is muted below.
