Thanks for the video Halloweenprops4ever. Super nice of you to put together. LOL at the video style of it, kind of a mad dash to Lowes for the beginning of halloween mdse! My store was set up when I went there a week or so ago but I didn't have the time to try out the animated guys. Always nice to focus on the movement of them for future prop making with them. The mummy has a nice wiggling motion and that one skeleton with the hand in the air I saw as a rattlesnake tail movement.
I made a quick dash in yesterday at lunchtime and went back for one of the chalkboard statutes or whatever they call them. Plan to use on a food table most likely. My store had 2 versions, one with the 3 skulls on top and the other one the pumpkin head design (posted a photo of that version early in this thread). For writing purposes The 3 Skulls give you more useable space to write on so that's what I went for. Are there other designs I didn't see? The shelf label just said "assorted" but not how many.
Yesterday's trip in was a second location for me. They had a lot of the inflatables up on the top of the shelves, which my first store didn't. Sadly didn't see any other small mdse than what I saw in the first store. Guess that's it. Liked some of what they had last year and had hoped to find it again this year and pick up a few items. Oh well. This second location had NO witches. Saw only the lights alive skeleton. My guess is that Sarah the Sassy Witch will sell out.
Yeah, my Lowes had pretty much everything but the life-size witch. I don't think there is even a price sticker for it yet. Is this the case in many stores? Kind of odd that they would not get them in everywhere. :eek:
I almost bought one of the "jail breakers" at Menards. They had a reaper and a werewolf. Their heads pops in and out of a small jail window and and they talk. Cool BUT they seemed very flimsy. Does anyone have any experience with these? Do they last very long? Are they left over from last year? My store only had two.
Also almost bought a light up reaper. There was one that was $59 with clear lights and spoke and the other one was was just the same guy naked for $39 (and no stand) but it lit up in colors and made spooky sounds instead of speaking.
what did the reaper with white lights spoke?
Good news. They finally put most / if not all of the Halloween stuff online for Menards:
