Sneak preview of Asda Halloween stock 2010

Asda Halloween 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:

asda halloween 2010Skeleton Prisoner
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.


Dancing Skeleton

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!

Asda halloweenCrystal 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!

Wanda witch asda halloweenWanda Witch
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.

And don’t forget, until your local Asda gets their Halloween stuff, you can still buy things online from the Asda website:

    Twas me who wrote the Asda 2010 thread on HF! Im Dazzer! Its my understanding that Wanda the Witch will be £70 (Pressloft Website). Her head moves up/down/left/right as does her mouth. her eyes also light up. See vid @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxWhHt6xHKc. Unfortunately she doesnt move up and down on the broom! She is still defo on my list of goodies to buy this year :)

    I have a feeling we will see less props at Asda this year. It looks like they have concentrated on kids stuff, ie cakes, plates, cups etc. I hope im wrong though, would love to see some good size props etc as ill get a Wanda Witch.

  3. Leo September 18, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    Wonda witch is amazing, I really hope I don’t miss out on one this year. (The Butler last year had sold out :[ ) Asda is definitely along with TK MAXX the best places for Halloween items. Found this site via Google, so i’ll now add to my favs and check back daily !

  4. Kat September 22, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    Does anyone know when the Halloween stuff will be available to buy in Asda? I rang them up today but it’s not out yet and they couldn’t tell me when it will be.

    Also, I’m planning a Halloween party and have a limited budget. Anyone have any ideas for cheap but effective decorations (that don’t look cheap); games to get adults mingling; and ideas on how to really scare my guests?

    Thanks :)

  5. Mr Halloween September 22, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    From what I have read/heard, the Asda stuff should be out this weekend. Asda are pretty hard to beat for value as far as halloween decorations/wares are concerned.
    As far as ideas go, there are a bunch on this site if you have a look around. Plus, there is a lot of great content coming up, so keep checking back! :)

    Asda Living Stores are already stocking the Halloween products. Ive been the proud owner of a wanda the Witch for the last 3 days :-) All other Asda stores will be rolling the stock from this weekend/early next week. I got this info direct from Asda Customer Services at the beginning of the month and they have been on the money with Asda Living stores rollout date!

    I went into Tesco today (to do grocery shopping with the family, yawn.) And I was surprised to see (and was slightly dissapointed) that there was no Halloween aisle! Anyone have any idea when Tesco will have everything out? Thanks!

  8. cheryl September 25, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    hey olivia, tesco do not put out halloween items until their wine festival has finished, so it will be a few weeks yet!

  9. Leo September 26, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Still no Halloween in my local Asda. I’ll be so disappoint if Wonda Witch and the Crystal Ball Fogger are sold out :( Wonda looks amazing on youtube!

    My local Sainsbury’s has their items out, not a big range, I did notice 8 Pumpkin lights, like christmas fairy lights.

  10. Mr Halloween September 26, 2010 at 8:06 am

    I spoke to my local Asda (Brighton) and now they’re saying that the Halloween stock won’t be going out until Monday. They actually recommended that I go on Tuesday for everything to be out. I plan to get there first thing!

  11. Jim September 26, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    No halloween decorations in either of the Asda shops near me. Is this going to be the new policy? I bet they are not so late with the christmas stuff that seems to be out three months early!

  12. neeta September 26, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    hey kat, i’m on a budget too and have bought loads of stuff in poundworld and poundland. i managed to get light up ghosts, spiders and pumpkins, skulls in cages, glow in the dark skeletons, large glittery spiders, severed bloody hands, serving bowls and platters, broomsticks, bats, costumes, facepaints, signs, banners and they’ve got loads more stuff too!

  13. Olivia September 26, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    Well from what I saw in Tesco, they didn’t have any wine festival at my local Tesco! All they had was this Baby Savings thing! I think I’ll have to get in touch with them and ask.

  14. Olivia September 26, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    @Leo please give me the link to the video of Wanda on YouTube, just looked and couldn’t find anything!

  15. Mr Halloween September 26, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    I have seen few clips of animatronic witches on youtube, but none of Wanda in particular. Would be great to see it.
    I did notice that you can now buy her online from Asda Direct though (currently out of stock) see the link here: buy Wanda the Witch
    Buying online would obviously save you from having to get it back home. I’m guessing that it will be pretty big with all the packaging!

  16. Su September 27, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    I went into Folkestone Asda this lunchtime and bought the “See No Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil” skull tealight holders for £2 each, and a couple of packs of the bone shaped candles.

    Asda had the best Halloween stuff last year and seem to have done the same again this year.

  17. wendy warner September 28, 2010 at 6:26 am

    Hey. I just managed to buy Wanda the witch at Ipswich Asda.
    They let me have the one in the box that the store model was standing on.
    They said they were getting more in and there is still plenty of time till halloween.

  18. Linda Gallagher September 28, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Just back home with my Wanda purchase
    Be warned though folks she is for indoor use only….if I had known that I wouldnt have bought her. Still she looks amazing …just need to find somewhere to put her now

  19. Hedwig October 3, 2010 at 2:04 am

    Just purchased Wanda Witch she is fantastic She will really make Halloween magical from now on i also got 6 of the glass pumpkin tea light holders and a bag of pumpkin coloured tea light candles i recommend you get hold of some before they run out im not too keen on the crystal ball fogger though it isnt as good as the skull fogger i got a couple of years ago.

  20. Mr Halloween October 3, 2010 at 6:33 am

    DARN IT! I went for a Wanda Witch (finally) and they were all sold out. I did get the skull fogger, but haven’t tried it out yet. I too loved the skull fogger. It’s gonna be hard to beat.
    Both together though… Could be interesting! :D

  21. Jim October 4, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    make sure you check out some of the exclusive items at Asda Living this year, including the Giant Spider appr. 4ft in diameter and the Giant Bobble head costumes.

  22. Olivia October 4, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    Evening All!
    Went to Asda on Saturday with the family, yawn. Both Asda and Tesco have their Halloween stuff out where I am! I am now a proud owner of a Locked Up Lenny. Saw Wanda by the door, they have loads in stock where I am! I’m getting round Dad into getting Wanda for me when he gets paid ;) I want Wanda for my part-ay! If they have one on the 30th or something, hopefully, it’ll be cheaper :))

  23. Mr Halloween October 5, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    It’s funny how some stores have completely dried up and others have lots in. Going to have to track one down this week!

  24. Olivia October 5, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Yeah I totally agree Mr Halloween, now it’s trudging round pound shops for plates and cups and things, last year, stupidly, we left it until it was actually Halloween to buy plates and cups and stuff. Big mistake! There was hardly anything left, and we were left with these crappy things. Take my word of advice, you see it, like it, buy it!

  25. Soriah October 22, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    hii , i think the halloween little kid in the pirate outfit looks pretty cool because my granny would love to put that outside her door for when the kids are trick or treating, lool thats how evil she is, but where do you get this from? and can you inform me on the price of it? thanks :)

  26. Mr Halloween October 22, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    If you mean the pirate skeleton in the cage, it looks like that didn’t come out for some reason :(
    Seems to have been replaced by this: http://direct.asda.com/Asda-Skeleton/001842246,default,pd.html?purl=lovehorror
    All from Asda and about £10…
