Been There Ornament – Universal Studios Resort

Starbucks Been There Ornament – Universal Studios Resort is being finally released, almost three years after its full-size sibling. I was quite disappointed back then since ornaments hold a special place in my heart. Thanks, Starbucks, for fixing this!
The new ornament, unlike the latest Disney minis, has fewer elements in the design, when compared to the bigger mug. The box is orange and the string is blue.
Going from the right to the left of the ornament, here’s what we see:
There is the entrance to Universal Studios Florida (a.k.a.… Read more

Been There Ornament Disney – Magic Kingdom 2

This is Been There Ornament Disney – Magic Kingdom v2 that you can find on the shelves in the park, next to the bigger mug. Read my previous post for a full review of the list of symbols that can be found on both mug and ornament.

Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2

Along with the bigger mug Starbucks has released the WDW 50th Anniversary ornaments as well. Please meet Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2

This time artists went with a full copy of the design of the mug, just making it smaller.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Arizona 3

It seems that rather than introducing new locations, Starbucks decided to review the existing ones.

Well, as I said, Starbucks has gone even further and completely updated the design with the release of the brand new Been There Ornament – Arizona v3. As you can see from the comparison picture below, most of the design elements of the ornament were rearranged.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow is the second in a row city release from the YAH ornament series. Starbucks has been only releasing country ornaments recently, so it is nice to see that there is more than that. There are certainly many countries that we, collectors, would like Starbucks to come up with the ornaments for, but it won’t hurt if cities are added to the schedule too!
When reviewing the full-sized mug, I didn’t mention the dragon on the right of the front of the mug, so I would like to give it attention now.… Read more
