    Aside from Batman himself, I believe all the other characters, Robin, Catwoman, Joker, and Riddler were "limited quantity" ornaments, which I suspect Batgirl will also be.

    I have a love/hate with Hallmark. They captured me back in 1991 with their Starship Enterprise. Since then, it's been a rabbit hole, and I have so many that although I love them all individually, it becomes overwhelming to decorate each year (and take them down) to the point where I enjoy the collection less the more I get. I keep saying I'll stop, and then they zing me with Planet of the Apes, or Batgirl... Things I never imagined they'd make.

    If one day they ever make Creepshow characters, that will be my swan song I guess.
    PLEASE HELP ME WITH THESE CARDS:

    I hear this. I've gone from getting 3 or 4 every year to maybe one every two years. There's so many that most don't even come out of the box each year. And then when I packed them up after Christmas, I was always scrambling to find the box with the right insert and the baggie and then which kid made such a mess out of all this and then I decided it doesn't matter. Most aren't worth much used, I don't have time when taking down the tree to preserve each one like it's a rare antiquity. So the box gets torn, the insert missing, it breaks, all good.

    But I like that Batgirl, too!

    I keep a lot of my non-Holiday specific ornaments up all year long, partially because I don't want to put them up and take them on the tree every year. The Batman '66 ornaments hang nicely from the shelf racks of IKEA's Detolf case, for instance.
