Wow for me they stepped up their game, maybe got a new purchaser for the halloween department. I absolutely love the snake hourglass. Hope the hourglass is plastic. Would probably store easier without getting broken. Gonna be a must have. Also really like the "apartment" door bell, nice twist and unique. Now someone must have seen my post last year to Crazy Bonez about wanting a snake skeleton! Not sure if this is Crazy Bonez or not but will be interested to find out. That's another Must Have. The Gold and Black eyeball doorbell is very elegant. I have the red one from Big Lots, which is more aged, and will just paint mine as I wasn't keen on the red but if I didn't already have one I'd be picking up Targets, more my design style. The wolf statue is nice but no room. Dang! Didn't think I'd be buying much from Target this year.

Thanks for the preview!

Wow I'm looking at their site now and it's like a whole new company! And that's a good thing!! Honestly this stuff is steps way above what I've ever seen in their store. Sure to attract people back to them for halloween. Now the question will be what can I do without :D.


I see they have Larry zombie for $25. Great price although he is a prop that has been out there for many years. Overall I think their prices are pretty good.

Oooh and the snake skeleton is flexible and posable! Perfect!! 44 inches long too! Someone definitely heard me last year.

RIGHT!!! I gasped when I logged in and saw the new stuff. Super excited about the skeletons, especially the snake. The Chihuahua is cute too. You must have someone's ear;)

Thank you, pondobaba, for all of the additional pics!

I don't know if I've ever used this word to describe a Halloween decoration before, but that little lizard skelly is ADORABLE! Ha ha ha!

The set called Cabinet of Curiosities Paper Tags is FANTASTIC, IMHO. http://www.target.com/p/-/A-51190765
The one called Undertaker's Remedy is particularly beautiful. At $9.99, I think they are a good deal for someone like me who doesn't have a great printer but does like to create potion bottles. I'm sure I will get at least one set of these.

Their pillows this year are also particularly nice.

Oh, the Halloween Spooky Clock might be a must-buy for me - http://www.target.com/p/-/A-50918534
Can't wait to hear what it says!

There's a neat looking haunted TV, an animated raven to go with the animated cat from last year, some witch hand yard stakes that look pretty good - maybe can be repurposed as hands for a witch prop, especially if you paint the nails or add fake nails from the dollar store.

Oh! This WOLF TOMBSTONE is going to be super popular!!!! http://www.target.com/p/halloween-premium-wolf-tombstone/-/A-50904960

And look at this claw candlestick holder - http://www.target.com/p/halloween-zoomorphic-candle-holder/-/A-50883299

Ahh! Look at this great cloche! Even though this one is listed as small, the price is great! http://www.target.com/p/halloween-cloche-decor-small/-/A-50804186
And there's a bigger one for not much more! http://www.target.com/p/halloween-cloche-decor-large/-/A-50713985

I like this owl - http://www.target.com/p/halloween-animated-owl-black/-/A-51199611

For those that like DoTD, their skeleton figures would look awesome in a display together. For those that like the gold accents on decorations this year, Target has a beautiful black tablecloth with gold skulls & other details.

Overall, I am impressed with the stock. I do wish they had an animated candy dish or two to choose from, but I think they did a good job this year. Can't wait to see some of these things in person!! :cool:

Thank you for the links, JMFPA! I'm giddy over the selections this year! Finally, Target is delivering. Already placed my order for several things:D

I've been looking for a skull cookie jar~they have TWO! The 'witchy' glasses are reasonably priced for all those into witch decor.

Who can't use another metal candlestick for $10? The Henry talking tombstone($25) looks good, as long as it's not the same 'canned' moaning voice other props have.

Agree, PIB! I ordered 3 large ones ([email protected]). Hopefully, they're not crap. We've used only glass cloches in the past-a pain to pack up, so these might do the trick!

So...ended up with the Chihuahua, lizard, lg bat, and snake skellies. I'm a fiend for bones, real of fake. Also snagged the wooden finger sign & cloches. Now going back to order one of the skull cookie jars...trying to decide black or clear:rolleyes: My Red Card is ON FIRE;)

I saw those witchy glasses & totally laughed at the one that said "Witch Please"! I would definitely drink out of that one all the time! LOL!

I just had so much fun going through all these pages of stuff! It's kind of like how I felt as a kid when I'd go through the toy catalogs & circle the stuff I wanted! :D

That makes me sound old, I guess! I'm not that old though, but the internet sure has changed things!

I thought those tags looked great too. Could definitely see them hanging off some of my witch's bottles. But...there's so much else to buy...what do you put in your cart or wish list and not?! Yikes.

BTW did anyone see the Hagatha Towering Witch? She's 250.00 and it says she's 7 feet tall. I love the looks of her. Thankfully don't do a big witch scene. Even like the looks of their $200 Haunted Tree Deadwood, 6 ft. Some of the props are repeats that I've seen around but that's okay because it gives people a lot of choice. Doubtful all this stuff is going to be in the stores though so I'm guessing lots of it will need to be ordered online.

In general I'd say Target is the Most Improved Store for 2016. They cover elegant (without the glitter), scary, fun and whimsical (for the younger kids) and seem to be well priced for everyone. If every store stepped up like them we'd all be in trouble.

I was just checking out their site last night and I was really impressed with their offerings. I was looking for the Gemmy antique style haunted radio that they had last year and decided that there's a few more things that I'm going to need lol
