For Christmas 2021, Hallmark’s storied Keepsake ornament line features among its many entries new LEGO minifigure inspired Christmas tree decorations. Each is delightful and of high quality. The figures are all craftedfrom high quality plastic and do not feel flimsy when held. In terms of functionality, despite depicting minifigures, none of them articulate in any way; heads, arms and legs all remain motionless. Unlike the minifigure ornaments available directly from the LEGO Group, these are not just regular figures, they are about three times the size of a standard minifigure – they won’t get lost on a Christmas tree thanks to their scale.

Batman got an ornament a few years back to correspond with The LEGO Batman Movie followed up by Superman. I am guessing when this particular design was greenlit executives were expecting Wonder Woman 1984 to be a bit more of a hit than it turned out to be, but at least it rounds out the heroic trio. Box office smash or no, the figure is great, depicting a classic version of the character at a larger than normal minifigure scale. As with Darth Vader, Diana’s pose has been perfectly balanced around a centre of gravity so that she can stand when not hung from a tree. The only potential drawback is for those with young kids. Of necessity, her lasso of truth is thinner than any accessory held by the other ornaments which could be broken off if young hands clamouring around the bottom of the tree are a thing in your household. This can of course easily be countered by hanging her higher in the tree.
