Super cute! I know at Target today I was just happy to see Count Chocula on the shelves.
I want that black top! I doubt they have my size though...Target tends to only carry my size in mens
I have to agree with your opinion. Even after seeing your pics, I wanted to like it so bad that I was willing to wait to see it myself and thought I bet I still like it. Well I saw it yesterday and nope , not so much. the concept is great but it looks so cheap , even the "flame" inside looks like it could break at any minute. The one at HD isn't as cute, doesn't have the hand but it looks so much more sturdy.My local store had 1 employee stocking the shelves in the seasonal section!!! He was very nice and told me to check back again tomorrow for a better selection. All items were in the back and they would have everything out soon. Woo hoo!
They had 2 skeleton lanterns out. I was hoping it would be better. I really do like the design (reminds me of Dave Lowe) but it will require some modifications IMHO. Attached some photos.
I think I may have to pick up a couple of these for my cats. So cute. Thanks for letting me know about them.Since it's finally online: If you have a cat, get one of the cardboard cat scratcher houses. They LOVE them. I bought one last year, and ended up buying the --other holiday-- themed one as well. Also, yes, they are actually adult cat sized, and pretty sturdy. I think I preferred last year's haunted house themed one for design, though.
Also, there's an online only 2-story movie theater themed one. https://www.target.com/p/cat-scratcher-house-hyde-38-eek-boutique-8482/-/A-76200979
I LOVE that wolf statue! That's probably one of my favorite things from Target ever (and is perfect for next year's gothic haunt theme we're doing).While it is only $30 & not a Spirit-like prop, I like it. It appears to be like blow mold material but does look like stone & has an eye. I actually thought it was a tombstone & still could play it off as that but doesn't have an epitaph. Not as tall as the one from Big Lots but it is 1/2 the price. Pretty loud & snarls while moving head up & down in a jerky fashion at different levels then tips up his head up & howls. Mouth doesn't move. Bright yellow eyes.

Also bought the Skelly in a Coffin. I like him as well but one thing I don't like is there is a clear plastic over the opening (I assume to keep weather out) but his red eyes cast a reflection on it if you aren't looking at it at eye level. I was going to add him among my tombstones in my cemetery but I will have to get creative & have him sit on something to elevate it near eye level. Cute sayings but first word or two in each sentence a little hard to make out but says.."They just don't make coffins like they used to. At least I have a window now" & the 2nd saying is "I need to find a place to live; any suggestions? You wouldn't have any room at your place. I don't take a lot of room". He also lights up green, along with his hand & both move back & forth:

I'll post the other LED stuff later when it gets dark out so the lights will show better. I asked somewhere before but no answer. I know there is a picture limit but will it let me attach a video? I will redo if so.
Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream!! I will have to get some. Target is also the only place I can ever find pumpkin pie pop tarts.Yeeeeees....was just coming to share that Target has finally put out some goodies today! The pet costumes have been out for a week but school supplies are finally being moved out and sent to the cold dark warehouse where they can sit and think about what they’ve done.
Candy came out this weekend. About half of the costumes are out. Some minor costume accessories. No party supplies or big props but small hanging things and tabletop decor. Skeletons are out and I have to say that I really like the snake skellies! I’m usually not a fan on the animal skeleton trend of late but I have not seen snakes before and thought they were well done.
Andplusalso, the Ben & Jerrys Pumpkin Cheesecake pints hit our shelves this weekend. Target is the only store in our town to carry this flavor and it’s my absolute favorite. I stock up for the year when they go on sale.
For some reason they do the seasonal snack department justice. They are carrying all the Halloween cereals in a huge display near the front, including the new Captain Crunch, and 2 others I have not seen before. Plus the normal Count Chocula, etc.Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream!! I will have to get some. Target is also the only place I can ever find pumpkin pie pop tarts.
