Cowabunga Christmas: Day 6 (Santa Ornaments)

Welcome to Cowabunga Christmas - the 2015 edition of 24 Days of Turtle. From December 1st through 24th, the Turtle Powered advent calendar will feature daily holiday-themed treasures from every era of TMNT.

Let the countdown 'til Christmas continue with DAY 6!

There's something to be said for simplicity. It goes a long way - especially in a season with an onslaught of decorations, music & lights. It's very possible you'll be puking Yule logs by the end. That's why I appreciate the simple stuff, like these very simple TMNT Santa ornaments.

The holiday season must be a tempting time for manufacturers. It's so easy to cover your creations in festive colors, Santa suits & every other Christmas cliche available. But the creators of these TMNT Santa ornaments suppressed the urge. They kept it simple (there's that word again!) and put a tiny Santa hat on the head of each ornament.

The red & blue bandanna - wearing brothers are presented in their 2012 Nickelodeon versions. I love their non-threatening stances. It's like they're embracing the holiday spirit. Their usual overly aggressive, ninja-like stances have been sidelined for something merrier. The 1-2 punch of simplicity & smiles muster up an odd sense of nostalgic, like these ornaments are straight out of the 90s. Something old, something new - a cowabunga concept.

Do the Santa Ornaments make a good gift?

You'd expect me to give this a glowing endorsement. And I want to, I really do. I LOVE these ornaments. But, notice how there are only 2 of the 4 Turtles? Unfortunately, Michelangelo's version is defective. I saw over 2 dozen ornaments of the party dude and all of them had a defect near his mouth - making him look like he was a drooling. It was a weird, uncomfortable visual that's better left off the Christmas tree. As for Donatello, they don't even make him! Donatello does machines, but apparently not Christmas. That means a complete set of these ornaments will consist of a comatose Mikey & a non-existent Donny. Bah humbug!

Check back tomorrow for DAY 7 of Cowabunga Christmas! Can't wait until then? Take a trip with the Ghost from Christmas Past to see what The Sewer Den put on display on December 6th in 2013 and 2014.
