Wow, what a find.
I was just searching my usual Halloween sites and found an amazing link on Halloweenforum.com.
There was a discussion about this year’s Adsa stock and a couple of interesting nuggets came out of the conversation. First up, Asda Living stores will be stocking their Halloween wares from September 18th.
Other stores will have their items on display the week after.
But, best of all, there is a PR site that is listing the new Halloween items – Or at least they seem to be. I can’t confirm the accuracy 100%.
Here are some of the highlights:
This little guy looks to be similar to Mr Bone Jangles that I got last year. I’m guessing that he will be motion/noise sensitive and will rattle around in his little gibbet when woken by unsuspecting victims.
I’ve got to be honest, he doesn’t look too exciting, but who knows. Given his pirate attire, maybe he’ll aslo sing a few sea shanties for you.
Again this guy looks similar to one of last years products, DJ Bangin Bones. Looks like he could be fun though, particularly if he dances. Not really sure how long the novelty will last though, as he’s not really designed to scare. Not that Halloween should be all about being petrified of course!
Crystal Ball Fogger
Now onto something that I really like, a halloween prop that gives of fog! I’m always a sucker for these things, especially since getting the Skull fogger a couple of years back.
I have been toying with the idea of getting a full on smoke machine for a while now, but I’m a little concerned that a) I might lose things (people, drinks etc) and b) it could stain uphostery. That’s why these foggers are so cool, the only bi-product is water.
Anway, not too sure about whether the fog is just inside/outside or both with this one. Looks pretty nice though. If they keep it cheap, I could definitely be tempted!
I didn’t want to go too much into these items without first seeing them in person, but had to give a final mention to Wanda Witch.
Last year Asda gave us the life sized creepy butler with moving eyes. This time round it’s a life sized witch, which is much better in my opinion.
I’m sure that I have seen this on a site somewhere, but can’t find a link. You can expect some cackling and perhaps a bit of movement on her broomstick. On the downside, she’s likely to be expensive – the butler was just shy of £100 last year I believe.
Still, great to see the sort of things that we can expect.
