Late October marks the eve and day when all good souls roam the earth and search for one last day of warmth before departing for their next celestial assignment.
We gather in all of the fruits and veggies of fall’s harvest to be preserved and have celebrations of the departed; good memories of family and friends. Whether it’s a harvest party, Halloween, or the increasingly popular Latin Dia de los Muertos, scare away ghosts, goblins, and long-legged creatures such as those depicted by The 12′ Inflatable Animated Spider and The Gargantuan Inflatable Gargoyle with a party your friends and family will remember.
Try games of fortune telling like tarot and Ouija, where players divine the
future like Zoltar, accompanied by candy corn, homemade fat-free snacks made with The Healthiest Potato Chip Maker, punch, and bubbling kettles of spiced cider. Make a creative Halloween-themed piñata filled with your favorite sweets. As the backyard bonfires burn, tell tales of fright and romance, myth and legend. Have the neighbors over for pumpkin bowling with butternut squash nine pins. The Caramel Apple Maker lets you make your own gourmet caramel apples, and don’t forget cider donuts on strings: a race without hands to see who can devour them first. For the adults, serve flagons of ale and hard cider just like Rip Van Winkle.
When harvest winds howl and drive you indoors, lower the lights, turn off the telly, silence the smartphones and for one evening, make a happy shrine to our loved ones and the fallen who can’t be with us on this festive fall occasion.
Keep watch over your home this Halloween with The Gargantuan Inflatable Gargoyle from Hammacher Schlemmer.
This is the 15′ inflatable gargoyle that towers over visitors at a Halloween yard display. Keeping a nightly vigil like a loyal hound, the gargoyle squats on powerful clawed hindquarters and forefeet and moves its massive 3′-wide head 60º back and forth, providing a clear demonstration to n’er-do-well spirits that this yard possesses a preternatural presence demanding respect. With red and yellow eyes shaped by furrowed brows, its upturned snout, twin horns, and classic underbite suggest a less-malevolent temperament than its Medieval predecessor. Four integrated 7-watt light bulbs rated for 3,000 hours of operation illuminate the gargoyle from within, providing a hint of sentience that ensures the attention of the curious. Made from the same strong, light, and durable polyester material used in modern nautical sails, the gargoyle remains firmly fixed to the ground with included stakes and tethers. An included air blower plugs into AC with a 6′ cord to provide constant inflation in less than 10 minutes.
Ever vigilant, The Gargantuan Gargoyle measures 15′ H x 11′ W x 11 3/4′ D, and weighs 9 1/2 lbs.

Are you tired of losing the neighborhood Halloween decorating contest to the annoying guy next door? Well, we can assure you, he won’t have this in his yard!
Put yourself in the lead this year with The Inflatable Illuminated Ghastly Stagecoach from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Plump orange tires, a bulbous green frame, and four lanterns suggest a heavy conveyance difficult to pull yet three 88 1/2″-tall ghosts (each illuminated by an internal 7-watt C7 bulb rated for 3,000 hours of operation) appear eager to draw the coach, evinced by the expressive grins on each of their faces. A fourth illuminated apparition sits atop the coach, urging his charges on with ethereal encouragement. The included air blower, rated for 2,000 hours of operation, plugs into AC with 6′ cords to provide constant inflation in less than 10 minutes. The entire stagecoach stands 20′ L x 6′ W x 6′ H. and weighs 17 lbs. Durable polyester construction means you’ll be the envy of everyone on your block for years to come!

The inflatable headless horseman and his horse stand over an illuminated gravestone that reads “RIP.” Includes eight tethers and stakes for securing the display. Inflates in one minute with the included fan. Plugs into AC with a 5′ cord.

Standing nearly two stories tall, this inflatable black cat is the largest Halloween decoration available. The cat’s underbelly is 9 1/3′ above ground at the highest point, allowing trick-or-treaters to walk underneath, and each paw is the size of an armchair. The cat’s head automatically sways side-to-side and it has illuminated, piercing red eyes, a 4 3/4′-wide fanged grin, and 9 3/4″-long claws. The gargantuan feline’s hindquarters and tail are elevated above its head as if he’s about to pounce on unsuspecting prey. An integrated air pump inflates the display in four minutes, and lights in the neck, body, and tail produce an eerie glow. Made of durable tear-resistant nylon, the cat remains in place with the included stakes and 19 2/3′-long tethers. Folds to 18 1/4″ x 15″ for convenient storage.
