You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Hallmark Salutes A Classic View-Master Christmas

As part of our Christmas in 3D celebration, here is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament from 2008, honoring the 50th anniversary of the View-Master version of A Night Before Christmas. This figural ornament consists of a miniature View-Master stereo viewer (small enough to hang on an evergreen branch) and an actual set of three 3D reels of the famed Visit-from-St.-Nicholas story that was first issued in 1958, in miniature form. The mini reels actually work in the viewer ornament for some Christmas tree-type fun. (If you would like to get your own View-Master ornament, has this Hallmark gem for sale.)  The ornament pictured below is next to an actual viewer for size comparison. More about that classic holiday View-Master set soon as our Christmas in 3D spectacular continues here in Tulgey Wood.
