Every ornament tells a story, and the story of Oliver is a heartwarming Christmas tale perfect for the entire family!
New Family Tradition
Oliver the Ornament is a universally relatable story about love, forgiveness, friendship, and of course, Christmas! The first book centers around Oliver, an ornament who has been with his family since Mom and Dad’s first date. Despite being injured and bullied years later, Oliver still holds the magic of Christmas in his heart, as well as love for his family and friends. Through Oliver’s hardships, children can learn to overcome their own troubles.
The seven-book series and gift sets carry three central messages, the first of which is kindness in the face of bullying. Each ornament and book also tells the tale of how the ornament entered the family’s collection, and each ends with a great cliffhanger that leaves kids wanting more!
In just two years, Oliver the Ornament has hit People Magazine’s Best New Books List and was featured on Fox and Friends as one of the Hottest Toys of the Year. First Lady Melania Trump chose to read Oliver the Ornament at the annual gathering at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington D.C.! Even more exciting, the success of Oliver the Ornament has allowed proceeds from each sale to be donated to various children’s charities.
The first two books in the series are now available, and the boxed gift sets arrive with a beautifully illustrated book and a hand-painted ornament. The fun doesn’t stop there, however. Creator Todd Zimmermann also offers musical snow globes and family puzzles that are sure to start a new Christmas tradition. A snow globe featuring Oliver himself plays “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” while the globe featuring Frasier, a Christmas tree, plays “O Christmas Tree.” The puzzles are meant for every member of the family, with three different sized pieces so even tiny hands can join in.
