I had the pleasure today to go to the clear front-runner in this year’s Halloween merchandise race.
Home Depot is just killing it again this year with their stuff. Just look at this spread:
See that? I couldn’t even get it all in one pic.
Of course they had your normal stuff: pumpkins, silly dancing toys, skeleton dogs, cats, and dinosaurs.
*Record Scratch* Dinosaurs, you say?
How cool is that? You can also see from the pic that they have a skeletal pony. What you can’t see (because they didn’t have it in the store) is that they are also selling an 8-foot-tall T-Rex to go with the babies. Yes, you can see them in museums, but now you can have one in your home. That’s pretty sweet.
They also had this cool gargoyle:
These hanging ghouls:
And this creepy, thin, animatronic werewolf:
For value, I think this 3-pack of skulls for $9.98 is a steal. Less than 4 dollars for a realistic-looking, good-sized skull is too good to pass up.
And this full-sized poseable skeleton for $29.98 is an excellent deal, too.
I also have to give Home Depot props (no pun intended) for bringing back the peeper decorations. There were a few angry, easily-offended people that called from these to be removed from the shelf this year, and Home Depot decided to bring back – not only the original – but a few different versions.
They also had quite a few great animatronics. Just check out the videos below:
Pretty cool, huh?
So there’s my rundown of what Home Depot has to offer this year. I feel like it’s got a definite lead over the other home improvement store this year, which I’ll go over tomorrow. Be sure to check back then!
