Believe it or not, it’s time to turn your thoughts to Halloween. Retailers have started carrying merchandise for the spooky October holiday, and since trick-or-treating might not happen due to the pandemic, you’ll probably want to make your house extra-festive with Halloween decor this year.
Fear not, Home Depot has you covered — as long as you’re a fan of that Disney seasonal classic “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” that is. The home improvement store is selling a giant Oogie Boogie inflatable that will look impressive and imposing in your front yard.
With a height of 10.5 feet, this LED-powered item from Airblown will be the coolest and most mesmerizing display on the block. The towering puffed figure will set you back $149.
The energy-efficient Oogie Boogie self-inflates and deflates in seconds, and comes with stakes and tethers for easy setup. This inflatable is energy-efficient and can be used indoors as well.
If you’re interested in creating a whole “The Nightmare Before Christmas” scene, you can do that, too. Home Depot also sells a sound- and motion-activated 70-inch animated Sally doll, which blinks, moves and sings. She’s available for $199 and is an indoor-only product.
Don’t forget Jack Skellington himself! This pre-lit 5-foot-tall inflatable version of the character even comes with Zero the dog.
Like Oogie Boogie, Jack is easy to set up with tethers and stakes included. This product costs $69.98.
One benefit of using “The Nightmare Before Christmas” as your theme is that, since the Disney flick is also a Christmas movie, you can leave your decorations up through December, too, if you like.
Of course, you don’t have to stick with this Halloween theme if it’s not your thing, as there are plenty of other spooky-decor options to choose from.
Are you a “Beetlejuice” fan? You can always get an inflatable sandworm that’s 9.5 feet tall! The pre-lit Airblown item is colorful and will definitely draw attention to your home. It is also available from Home Depot and costs $199.
You could also always stick with more traditional pumpkins, cats, bats and ghosts to add to your lawn decor. Or you could add some mythological animals to the mix, like Oriental Trading’s skeletal unicorn and dragon for $49.98.
Any way you go about it, Halloween 2020 will be a much-needed celebration for kids and adults alike. Enjoy!
