Kurt Adler’s glamorously whimsical and glittering Hollywood Nutcracker line takes its name and vision from its creative driving force, artist Holly R. Adler. Holly first began designing for Kurt Adler three decades ago. Since then, her signature style has been injected into our holiday ornament, figurine, and nutcracker lines. Throughout the years, one fundamental concept has been threaded into all of Holly’s designs: an emphasis on contemporary trends while utilizing traditional techniques. Our best-selling Hollywood Nutcrackers illustrate this design philosophy perfectly by sending the classically stoic German nutcracker on a flight of fancy with a twist, pop, and dash of glitter.

The vast and vibrant Hollywood Nutcracker line includes designs perfect for Christmas, beloved collections, and everyday home décor. Each nutcracker is personally and lovingly designed by Holly Adler. From there, these imported pieces are handcrafted with extraordinary attention to detail: delicately hand painted bright-eyed faces, wispy tufts of feathery hair, festoons of fabulous accessories, and of course, glitter. After all, Hollywood Nutcrackers are the original glitter nutcrackers. Holly’s whimsical touch goes beyond flashy hues and shimmering embellishments; she has populated the Hollywood Nutcracker line with a veritable cast of characters from swashbuckling pirates and enchanted wizards to sweet gingerbread bakers and sparkling snow princesses. Hollywood Nutcrackers inspire adventure, whimsy, and smiles – which makes them the perfect holiday accent for consumers and a continuing best seller for Kurt Adler and our customers alike.
