So, do you still think your Halloween display is all that awesome after seeing what this fanatic does with his front lawn? Me? I'd be ashamed, with only my 3 air-blown blowups to show for it, if he were my neighbor.
You make the witch and mummy bend over and moon--I mean dance--by pushing up on the handle, along the candy container tube. What made me buy these a few years back was the detail and colors: I love the contented cat sitting on the witch's hat and the yellow eyes of the mummy. His red slashes don't quite make sense, but they fit, lending a dash of color to complement his eyes and "wrappings." (And I keep thinking of Popeye every time I look at the witch.)
They almost had to get the mop out at Target when I saw this 5 foot glow in the dark skeleton last night. Every year Target manages to bring some of the coolest decorations a Halloween-lover can drool or wet themselves over. And what does a glow in the dark skeleton need? Why, glow in the dark spiders, skulls, and rats, of course. Can you say life-size Forgotten Prisoner of Castle-mare tableau? Add a motion-controlled cobra that strikes and a few hanging bats and bammmm!
You know it's Halloween time when Doctor Dreadful and Creepy Crawlers hit the toy shelves. I screamed with delight seeing this Doctor Dreadful Zombie Lab at TRU: eat bubbling brains; drink zombie barf; slurp slimey bugs; PLUS Zombie Skin! The Stomach Churner isn't too shabby, either. Parents, it's yummy fun.
Michaels has their Halloween 2011 merchandise on the shelves. Always a good place to stock up on Lemax Spooky Town dens and denizens, Michaels offers a great lenticular portrait selection to accent your decaying decor just right. I'm a sucker for old-timey shooting galleries, and this year there's a cool arcade tableau I can add to my Spooky Town. The housing prices are a bit steep, though, so you may need to hock some bones.
