Hallmark Arcade Ornaments

In 2008, Hallmark released a holiday ornament in the shape of a Pac-Man cabinet.

The cabinet came with a couple of small watch batteries as well. What does this thing need watch batteries for? Well, if you press the tiny player button on the tiny arcade game, the machine lights up and plays the Pac-Man theme! How cool is that?

In 2009, they released a second miniature cabinet. It also lights up and plays both much and sound effects from the game.

Both of these ornaments retailed for just under $20 in 2008/2009 (respectively), and can still be found for around that same price today. Unfortunately there were no new miniature cabinets released in 2010 and 2011, so it appears that this particular line of ornaments is dead.
