Updated on September 25, 2020: When we first saw Home Depot unveil its posable 12-foot-tall skeleton at an industry event earlier this year, we immediately knew two things: it was the perfect product for terrifying neighborhood children, and it was going to be the year’s hottest piece of Halloween decor. Well, we were right. Thanks to this skeleton’s newfound social media fame and creepy glowing eyes, it’s becoming harder to find as Halloween approaches.

So where can you buy this haunted accessory? Home Depot is currently sold out of this popular item, but you can check their website to see if it’s available for pick-up at a Home Depot Store near you. If you’re feeling lucky, you can enter your email address to be notified if and when it’s back in stock. However, the giant Home Depot skeleton isn’t the only oversized Halloween decoration for sale this year. Alternatively, you can purchase more spooky skeleton’s from the same collection, even if they’re not quite as intimidating.

The CDC may be discouraging trick-or-treating this year, but you can still decorate your house and enjoy Halloween candy at home. Below, you’ll find our original story on the posable Home Depot skeleton. We’ve also added some additional giant skeletons and decorations from the new Home Depot Graves & Bones Collection that are still in stock and available for purchase online.


Original Story Published on August 11, 2020:

Halloween is fast approaching and one Halloween activity that definitely isn’t cancelled this year is decorating your house. Making your house into a spooky, creepy, crawly center of doom once a year is about as fun as it gets, and we know that the most dedicated decorators are always looking for ways to step up their game. Well, how about a 12-foot tall skeleton? That’ll do the trick.

This ginormous Halloween decoration from The Home Depot is one of their latest and greatest outdoor decoration creations that’s made to guard your house and scare away anyone not wearing a mask. It’s the perfect centerpiece for your whole decoration display and everyone in the neighborhood will be able to see it.

The giant Home Depot skeleton has animated LCD eyes for creating the creepiest effect and can actually be used indoors or outdoors — if you can fit it inside your house. The eyes light up with LEDs and all it takes is four C batteries to operate, so you don’t have to worry about connecting a cord. It does take about 90 minutes to set up with two people due to its size, but it breaks down into smaller parts so storage is relatively simple.

Go above and beyond this year with your decor and supersize the scare outside of your front door with this 12-foot-tall skeleton that’s sure to delight, impress and freak out anyone who passes by.

Finally, we have a creepy mermaid skeleton.
