I and a few others here bought the hands in the past. Nice to see that they are back. Nice quality. As I recall they sold out pretty fast then. I bought several pairs. I also bought and liked their little snoring hammock skelly guy (think it was priced around 18 maybe but after they sold out I saw them on e bay for twice that). Wonder if those will be back again this year.

Lakeside/LTD are basically the same catalog.

I bought 2 of those ToTers, the ghost, & they're super cute & they're about the size of a toddler. The feet are weighted too.

As GoS said, the hands are great quality. They're surprisingly heavy with a keyhole on the back, or the wrist really, for hanging. I think some got a different color one year but the ones I got are just like the one's pictured. I like them because it's a matched set, left & right. Usually when you see hands for sale you can only get one or the other.

RCIAG, those are interesting looking. I like the photo. Please post a review when the arrive.

Actually there use to be 3 sister companies with essentially 3 catalogs all about the same. ABC Distributing was the 3rd company and they emailed us maybe last year that we could now just order through LTD. Yeah, a real head scratcher.

I have a tendency to order things from these companies & not realizing they're either that large or that small. I went back to check their measurements & it seems like they'll be fairly large at 30" high that includes a 5" stake.

These stakes are wired together with 24-1/2" of cord between each one. On/off switch. Requires 3 "AAA" batteries. 10"W x 4"D x 30"H, each, including 5" stakes.

The yard sale thread made me realize I had a pic of Lakeside's Ghost ToTers.

Here's the Ghost by himself. They really are toddler sized. That cat tree is 4' tall give or take, so they're pretty big. They're feet are HUGE & weighted which is a good thing.



Here they are in my pumpkin display. Their heads are lighted by color changing LEDs that you can't see in the pic but they looked good up there in that display.

I got my zombies. I'll post a pic when I can find my camera or my phone is fully charged, whichever comes first.

They're mostly plastic stake, cheesecloth & plastic head. The heads are small too, they're not as big as my hands & I have pretty small hands. I'd guess the heads aren't even 6" long. They don't look bad, but they could use some touching up on the paint & maybe more fabric instead of cheesecloth. They weren't super expensive so I'm not going to spend a lot of time & money "fixing" them either. Their eyes light up but I don't have any AAA batteries right now so I can't even see how they look lit up. Which reminds me I need to hit up Woot! when they have their next battery sale.

The site had dimensions of these things but it's not like they included the measurements of JUST the heads. The heads are the disappointing thing, they're really much smaller than I'd expected but I'll still use them. Might stick 'em in the hostas by the walkway so you only see the tops & not the stakes.

The Demoness and Spooky Tree could be interesting for the price. Large enough to have a presence on your porch. Also kind of like the Skeleton guy on the bone swing. I generally look for better quality props that inevitably cost more but sometime if the weather is wet and wind blowing its good to have decent looking props you feel you can risk. Nice offerings.
