The Woolworths Halloween site is up and running and it’s filled with a load of great Halloween products. Best of all, most of them are very competitively priced.
Back in the day when they still had a high street presence, the Woolworths Halloween stock was always worth checking out. It was one of the few retailers that took Halloween seriously back then and they always made efforts to sell plenty of costumes, toys and treats.
We were obviously shocked and dismayed when the chain went bust, but gave a sigh of relief when their web site remained. Today they look to be stocking some top products that may even give our other favourite Halloween retailers a run for their money.
Our Woolworths Halloween picks
There are too many to choose from, but here are a few products that caught our eye.
Woolworths Halloween decorations
Hanging Jason: This is one product that you probably wouldn’t have seen sold in the old Woolworths stores. It’s Jason Voorhees, of Friday the 13th fame and he’s coming at you with a big old knife! Well, that’s what your guests will think when confonted by him.
At just 46cm he’s not actually life-size (even minus his legs), but it cetainly is detailed and will be sure to cause a fright or two on the big night.
At just £7 it will make a good prop/decoration and present for any horror enthusiast.
Jason Goblet: Staying on the Friday the 13th theme (for some reason. Woolworths seem to be going mad for it this year!) we have this impressive looking goblet with that famous hockey mask decorating it.
Now we have a bunch of Halloween drinking vessels at our place BUT you have to admit, this one looks pretty good. It has a high level of detail and has a really dirty, gimey finish (let’s hope that is isn’t real dirt and grime). Again, a cool Halloween prop, but also a great collectors item. Not sure how easy it would be to drink out of…
At just £1.50 though, it’s pretty hard to beat!
This one may look weird initially – okay, it’s just some tatty looking fabic to hang from a wall. But this is just some of the cool smaller touches that you could invest in to make your place look even more authentic and creepy.
Woolworths are stocking a few different types of material that you could hang from walls, windows, doorways or staircases to add to the atmosphere. Best of all, they’re pretty cheap too with this display cloth in assorted colours costing as little as £3 a piece.
As you may know (if you’ve visited Halloweenerrific before) I go mad for Halloween lights and it’s nice to see that Woolworths has even delivered as far as festive illumination is concerned. Again, it’s hard to choose with lots on offer, but my two favourites are these white ghost lights which seem to be mains powered and come in at £11 (20 lights) and these really cool battery operated ‘neon’ (neon looking, not actually neon) skeletons – these bony guys are only £1.99 each!
Oh wait! And there are even ‘Musical eyeball lights’. Yes, musical!
Woolworths Halloween Games
Now for some games. If you’re looking for ideas on how to enterain the people (of all ages) at your party, there are plenty of things to choose from.
We particularly like the ‘Pin the smile on the skeleton’ which is a nice fun take on the donkey game (in fact, we’re even going to give you some more ideas on how to do a DIY version of this in a forthcoming post).
There’s also a great Frankenstein’s Monster pinata which will be great fun to bash to pieces. You can fill it with whatever treats you like!
Phew, we really could go on forever showing more of the great stuff that Woolworths have on offer this year. We haven’t even touched on the vast array of costumes! In fact, you can check them out yourself by clicking on the following image
Woolworths have really set the bar high this year, so it’s definitely worth checking out their stuff. Don’t forget to get ordering soon though as you don’t want to leave it late and have things turn up after the big night.
The question is, how will Asda’s offerings compare to the Woolworths Halloween stock this year?
