General History of Blow Molds
Blow mold lawn ornaments have been available in the United States from the 1940s to the present, but the popularity of the pink flamingo in the 1950s brought these ornaments to fame. Union Products was the most successful American blow mold company, staying in business until 2006. Some companies, like Empire Plastic Corporation, made blow mold ornaments along with popular toys. Many American companies created blow mold ornaments from the 1950s through the early 1990s. Blow mold yard decorations are still available, but few blow mold companies are still operating in the U.S. at this time. Some have been made in the 2000s in China.
Blow mold lawn ornaments aren’t just for Christmas. Manufacturers made popular cartoon characters and children’s book characters, along with penguins, nativity scenes, candles and angels. Snoopy was a popular blow mold ornament, and many Disney characters were made by Santa’s Best. Artistic Latex Form Company produced blow mold angels and carolers, as well as some animal figurines. Blow mold ornaments prior to 1956 were two-dimensional, but after that time, Union Products and similar companies made three-dimensional blow mold lawn ornaments with a small light bulb for added visibility and charm.
