When it comes to classic holiday movies, A Christmas Story is right up there with Home Alone and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for required viewing. With so many great scenes and classic quotes to choose from (including our personal favorite: “Fragile—it must be Italian!”), we couldn’t help but get excited when we learned that Ralphie’s hilariously horrible bunny suit has been lovingly recreated as an inflatable decoration, and is now for sale over at The Home Depot.
Standing roughly six-feet tall, this inflatable Ralphie was made with painstaking detail. Seriously, just look at how perfect that pouty mouth is. It’s as if he’s forced to relive that scene of walking down the stairs in his bunny suit to Randy’s sneers over and over again. Even Ralphie’s tiny bunny toes have been perfectly recreated to match the movie.
Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, this hilarious holiday decoration is self-inflatable and can be ready to rock within minutes. Can your red-nosed reindeer do that? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Stakes and feathers are included, and it even lights up to help spread some cheer when displayed at night. Best of all, the built-in LED lights use less energy than traditional light bulbs, so when your Santas and snowmen start to dim, Ralphie — for better or worse — will stay shining bright.
If you’re looking to get a leg-up on this year’s holiday decorations, an inflatable Ralphie is definitely one of the most original decorations you can add to your arsenal. Unlike the old man’s risque leg lamp, this decoration won’t embarrass your lady. Plus, (almost) everyone’s seen A Christmas Story by now, and if they haven’t, your festive decoration will inspire them to give it a watch during the holidays this year.
