And they changed the paint patterns on a number of their molds, especially the nativities and the wisemen. They still make the white reindeer, but changed his antlers to all white. Since when does a deer have brilliant white antlers? It's all about them maximizing profit.
    I love some of the new paint jobs. Specially the new look to Bumpy.
    Maybe a surprise will arise in some years from them. Lol

    • Good to hear from ya Mr. Griswold!

      I like the idea of new paint jobs on blow molds too. Anyone giving a quick glance as they drive by will see the colors and not see they're the same blow molds.

      Our version of Santa's reindeer look more like the white tail and red deer we have in the states. Real reindeer can have white antlers. The good news is antlers don't light up on these blow molds. You could always spray them brown before attaching them to the head. Best of both worlds!

      I'm hoping for a few surprises from them too. I think once folks get tired of dead or limp puffies blow molds will swing back into the main stream.
      There is beauty in a winter's full moon. Glittering off the snow between the shadows of barren branches.

        I really hope so, then again I love seeing a mix of puffies and molds in a yard.

        • thanks everyone for the nice words. gris, I love the toy bag too. so which mrs claus goes with him? as for leaving molds behind, I rarely find duplicates, but if I do, and they can be rekindled, I will. I have 2 angels with gold wings, i'm going to make one silver wings. remember the scout song....make new friends, but keep the old,,,one is silver, and the other gold. and I have 2 stick santas, one i'm going to make into a wizard. hilda inspired me there. clc, that is a very pretty candle. I've never seen one like that before. hunting and finding old ones is a real treat. Richard, i'm sending some good wishes your way. hope it helps and you find some.

                          That's the same one I found at an antique store / craft mall!!! I sure didn't pay only $5 for mine, tho! Those eyes are creepy real, aren't they?

                          • lisa, i guess i didn't really pay attention before. oh, they're not real bad. i like this santa a lot.
                            Richard thanks. that's probably why they came together. i figure this might be the mrs claus you don't care for, but she sure paints up nice as different characters. and i don't mind her at all. i was pretty excited when i got her. she is my first and only mrs santa

                              Yeah, she's the one. However, if I found her I would get her. Lol
                              I have seen many repaints of her. She does look good redone.
