Super Cool Christmas Ornament

This Christmas ornament will have the ’80’s nerds out there going bananas.  I guess that makes me an ’80’s nerd because I almost died when I opened up this ridiculously awesome Christmas ornament a couple weeks ago.

I die.

Are you ready?  Are you a Muppets fan?  Are you an old-school, die-hard, 1970’s-1980-something kid who watched the Muppet Show once a week on shaggy brown carpet?

It’s Animal!  Just for you.  Just for the kid in you, the one who wore patched corduroy pants with big front pockets and had terrible hair, maybe of the mop-top variety, and buster brown shoes with mismatched shoelaces.

Sorry, I got a little carried away with a vision of myself in 1983.

Oh Animal.  Oh animal.

He made my life a little bit more bearable, even then. 

Especially then.

You too can own Animal.  He was sent to me by Hallmark, and I found more on Perfect for the Muppet Show nerd in your life.  Which might happen to be yourself.  I won’t tell.

    …”and Buster Brown shoes with mismatched shoelaces”. LOVED that you referenced Buster Brown! And here I thought my brother and I were the only ones privy to such ’80s shoe heaven!

      *head hanging*

      It’s no wonder I love fashion so much. I’m trying to atone for the sins of my parents.

  2. Dina :

    Animal was hands down the bestest dude ever!

    • Allison :

      Oh, wasn’t he though?

  3. Marianne :

    Oh SNAP! I bought this ornament for my Dear Dad in the summer (when the display was just going up at the store) (He gets an ornament from me every Christmas) He always made mention of Animal while my brother and I were watching. He’s gonna love it! I love it too!

    • Allison :

      Marianne, a kindred spirit! I love it.

  4. AE Jones :

    My best friend is a HUGE muppets fan… this is perfect for her. YAY!!

    • Allison :

      She will go bananas. ANIMAL!

  5. Jess :

    Get. Out. Of. TOWN!

    I am so ordering one of this for Nugget’s Christmas tree.

    • Allison :

      You will DIE when you see it in real life. Seriously, it’s ridiculously cute.
