And it’s another push for Halloween in July! Home Depot is the latest retailer to unveil its Halloween collection, much to fans of their giant skeleton’s delight (or, perhaps, disappointment, seeing as good ol’ Skelly is already sold out).
The internet has been collectively obsessing over the 12-foot skeleton since it first hit the shelves in the fall of 2020. Lance Allen, the designer of the massive decor staple, told Insider that he was inspired by similarly large pieces that he’d seen at haunted houses and trade shows. He wanted to create something amazing, allowing “Halloween enthusiasts” to bring the best of the best home.

The giant skeleton consistently sells out (though Home Depot has said it plans to restock it throughout the summer). There’s even a Facebook group dedicated to the 12-foot skeletons that has over 37,000 members. With the raging success of the obscenely large lawn ornament, Home Depot took a page out of its own book with this year’s product development.
The home improvement corporation released several obscenely large additions this year, including a 15-foot-tall glowing phantom ($400) and a 7-foot-tall purple willow tree with 600 LED lights ($130). The collection isn’t just giant in product size, though; it’s also giant in its offerings. There are 696 products filed within the collection page, featuring everything from a creatively adorable costumed-sheep dog inflatable ($99) to innovative inflatable blood-shot and blood-red eyeballs ($68).
