2016 Halloween Merchandise Review: Home Depot

Well, I had the pleasure of going to Home Depot yesterday, and yet again, they have KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE FREAKIN’ PARK.

Last year was the first time I really took notice of Home Depot’s Halloween decorations, and I think that’s because they had just seriously upped their Halloween game.  I’d been looking forward to this year’s display, and I wasn’t disappointed.

They have a wide selection of prop items from fake lanterns and jack o’ lanterns to bone animals and animatronics.  And everything is priced pretty reasonably, too.

Check out this cool Frankenstein’s monster:

He wasn’t plugged in, but he lights up and says a few phrases.

They, of course, had a great display of animatronics.  My favorite was the dragon.  She flaps her wings and just looks pretty badass in general.

As you can see in the second picture of the post, there were a lot of smaller prop items.  My favorite was this guy just because he’s pretty unique:

That would be a great prank to pull on someone, too.  Imagine if you were to go to someone’s house to watch horror movies and secretly placed that outside their window until the perfect moment where you say you heard something outside the window and they go to check, move back the curtain, and promptly piss their pants.

You can tell that I’ve thought about this.

I really liked their hanging items.  A few lit up and talked, and they were only $19.98.  That’s pretty awesome.

This cool trio of witches wasn’t lit up when I went, but I thought they were fun.

I also liked this guy:

Home Depot also has more light show items this year.  If you don’t know what those are, they are light stakes that project creepy shapes or lights on any surface you choose.  They’re great to supplement a sparse spot of your yard or house.

So should you go to Home Depot to check out their Halloween stuff?  Yes.  You should run there.
