This article will give details on the top five inflatable yard decorations to buy in 2010.
#1: Inflatable Skeleton Train with Rising Ghost
Walmart has a truly awesome yard decoration. It is a train with a skeleton conductor with a few passengers such as a ghost that rises up and some pumpkins. The conductor waves as he’s “driving” the train and the train itself is tricked out for Halloween. The front of the train has a creepy eyeball and jagged teeth mouth. The rest of the train is in orange, green and black and has bats all over it. A bonus passenger is at the back of the train, a vampire in his costume that lifts the lid of the coffin up and peeks out before closing it again. The inflatable also lights up and self inflates in mere seconds. Stakes and tethers are included so you can hook it to the ground. You can purchase it from Walmart for $199 dollars.
